Since first picking up a guitar in 1979, Jeff Kelley's relationship with music has been
an in depth long term commitment to a love above all others. His ability to find solace in
the crafting of songs and express emotion of every variety through both words and music make
his work both easily accessible to the listener and extraordinarily relavant. Jeff's life
has been far from average in some respects, living in a school bus with his wife and daughter
on a northern California commune for over 2 years for example. Yet, his ability to transmit
common feelings into nonlinear musical and lyrical expressions of everyday experiences is
delightful. One of the artist's closest friends
refers to this ability as "deconstructing the familiar."
When listening to Jeff for the first time many people have the experience of feeling they know
his songs from somewhere; they seem familiar, comfortable yet intriguing enough to listen to time
and again. The meaning behind the lyrics has a habit of unfolding slowly over time and changing
with every listen as the listener moves through life and changes; these are songs that grow with
you, retain their intrinsic value and unfold and develop with the listener.
