short bio

Rorie Kelly makes ladybeast music. Her life’s mission is to create music that inspires others to love themselves fiercely and become their own heroes. Rorie’s empowerment anthem “If You Teach a Bird to Sing” led her to perform at the Obama White House and earned her a top 10 staff pick from WFUV’s John Platt. Rorie performs weekly on her livestream Monday Night Muses, and you can tune in every Monday night from 7pm-9pm ET on her Facebook, Youtube, or Twitch page. Her new album Shadow Work is set to be released in Spring 2021, and the singer promises the new album will be “big, dark, and 150% more witchy”.
