With her stunning musicality and warm, enveloping voice, Texas native Kellye Gray is one of the most accomplished jazz vocalists on the national scene. Over her twenty-year career, Gray’s profile has continued to grow by leaps and bounds, recording a half-dozen albums as a leader and logging performances nationally and internationally at world-class venues and festivals including Lincoln Center, the Spoleto Festival, Yoshi’s and SFJAZZ. She has been onstage with legends Ray Charles, Dizzy Gillespie, Etta James and Arnett Cobb.
Kellye's new release, And, They Call Us Cowboys (the Texas Music Project (grr8 Records), re-imagines the timeless and diverse music of the Lone Star State through the filter of Gray’s jazz sensibility.
"Kellye Gray is well past "reasonably talented" and is instead a dynamic vocalist that can deconstruct some classic tunes and literally make them her own if just for a brief moment of time. The vibe here is as ever changing as the Texas panhandle as we move from shuffle blues to gospel to boogaloo all with the flavor of the Lone Star State with just a splash of jazz flavoring to make this unique hybrid special." - Bop-N-JazzVisit Event Website for More Info
