Kelly Jean is a Sacramento based acoustic indie/folk songwriter. She started crafting songs about love, heartbreak, grief, and longing after her first high school heartbreak. A natural born storyteller, she paints images on the walls of your mind with flowing melodies and candidly vulnerable lyrics. She’s known to give moody and heart-felt performances, drawing in listeners with an authentically emotive voice that has been compared to a painting with eyes that follow you around a room. With a style similar to artists like Jewel, Alanis Morissette, and Sara Bareilles, Kelly Jean cites strong female singer-songwriters of the 90s as being inspirational during her early writing years.
In 2020, she released an acoustic EP, Consequence. After running a successful crowd-funding campaign with Boston based studio Plaid Dog Recording, she is currently working on her first studio produced 5 song EP to be released fall 2021. Easing back into playing shows after the pandemic, you can usually find Kelly Jean in midtown Sacramento playing intimate places like Luna’s Cafe, Old Ironsides, The Russ Room, and house shows, connecting with fans on a soul level.
