Rare is the six year-old who finds it natural as breathing to dash over to a piano and pound out her own jumping, two-handed version of Ray Charles' R&B groundbreaker "I Got a Woman" or Chuck Berry's pioneering rock 'n' roll anthem "Maybellene". Kelley Hunt was that little girl. Rarer still is what she grew intoa real, live roots R&B singer-songwriter. In the world of bluesy, bodily music, there are plenty of people known for their singing, or for their playing, but far fewer recognized for songwriting and fewer still for all three. Hunt has a rich, full-bodied voice that always strikes you as the perfect medium of expression for whatever she chooses to sing. And on keyboards she can be her own authoritative, muscular rhythm section and an exploratory improviser. But she writes with the musical intelligence to absorb an array of early, plugged-in popular music and make it new, applying traditional underpinnings to contemporary social and political subjects in her very personal way. And she can step back and write a fierce hip-twisting, groovecentric, righteously rootsy dance number. She does it all with passion and a commanding stage presence - and makes sure she brings her audience along with her.
"Kelley Hunt delivers the goods with a voice that grafts passionate blues to scorching soul - instantly endearing her to all within earshot, as her band surrounds her in a greasy funk that completes the package and brings you back for more. 'GRAVITY LOVES YOU' continues this tasty tradition and ups the ante once again."-Eric Thom, BLUES REVUE
"Blues, R&B and gospel singer-songwriter and show-stopping boogie piano player."
