This isn’t the first time Kelly has attempted to enter the music industry. In fact, he’s has modest success for a few years, including a short stint in the early rounds of the FOX reality show American Idol.
“While I consistently received praise from the producers, I never moved past the non-televised portion of the contest,” he said. “It was a wake-up call for me. I have these ideas and content that break the convention mold of ‘filler’ lyrics, and I realized that I was going to have to make my own dreams come true. That’s why I put out ‘Hold On To Me’ a couple of years ago. The positive response has been overwhelming. My followers on Soundcloud just exploded, and some of the heavy-hitters in the music industry began to take notice.”
“Not only did I learn a lot of instruments as a kid, but I also taught myself how to sing,” he said. “I’ve been singing now since I was 17 or 18. A lot of people have vocal coaches, but I didn’t have that and I taught myself to sing. I just kept practicing, trying to be good at it. I really believe that all you need is a steady tone and the ability to hold a note and you can do some things in this industry.”
