Kelly Carvin’s Music is a Cosmic Light of Rebellious Flare, Fused With Raw, Down-To-Earth Sensuality. Inspired by a mix of rock, folk, pop, country, and a splash of blues, Kelly has a message reminiscent of the 60's with a refreshing twist. Her songs are inspiring, relatable, compelling, and from the heart. Her distinct vocals are sweet and sensual, yet maintain a resonance of sassy rock. An overall fiery persona compliments her songs, live performance, and recordings. Accomplishments include an endorsement by CARVIN Guitars and Amps, performances for NBC, The Apollo Theater, American Idol, The Stone Pony, and the Sherman Theater, as well as nominations for Best Female Acoustic Act at the Asbury Park Music Awards.
