"Independent, free, and full of complexity. Difficult to cage. rorie kelly is that type of indie rock." - LI Pulse Magazine
rorie kelly is a small redheaded tornado of sound. First-time listeners often comment, "I can't believe that voice came out of that body." rorie writes catchy, melodic rock songs that she plays with enough passion to break guitar strings--and go right on playing without batting an eye. The singer/songwriter has been compared to artists ranging from Fiona Apple to Janis Joplin to Liz Phair. She has opened for Alix Olsen and Jen Chapin, and was named one of Long Island's "Top Ten Indie Artists You've Never Heard Of" by Pulse Magazine.
rorie recently released her first full-length record, Wish Upon a Bottlecap. The album has hit the airwaves with a vengeance. Wish Upon a Bottlecap is getting spins on Triple-A and college radio stations across the country, including stations reporting to FMQB and CMJ.
"Her sound was so powerful, she acoustically filled every square inch of space." - Canvas Magazine
rorie can often be seen in the company of her band, rorie kelly and More of the Mess. As a trio, they build an intricate wall of sound that you'd expect to hear from a larger band. rorie is also well known in NYC and Long Island's singer/songwriter scenes, and her solo performances are just as intense as when she's rocking with the band behind her.
