Currently making his indelible mark on the live music circuit across the Southwest, Kelly hails from Ruidoso, New Mexico, where he initially followed the family line of his father and grandfather and played drums from an early age. Like many, in his teen years a rebellious streak led him to punk rock. Yet at the same time, a job in a barbeque restaurant where the entertainers performed Western music by Marty Robbins and the Sons of the Pioneers planted a seed in his muse. After his high-school graduation Kelly headed to the West Coast, where he toured and recorded with the hardcore rock bands Point of Recognition. Just as he was finding it a musical dead end, hearing the songs of such legendary artists as Townes Van Zandt and Billy Joe Shaver provided an epiphany. He switched instruments to guitar, headed to Lubbock, Texas, and spent a few years honing his craft as a songwriter and singer and finding his feet as a performer in coffeehouses. Moving to Tulsa, Oklahoma, Kelly put together a band, landed a weekly residency at a club, and hit the studio to record the songs that became his debut EP, Come Back To Tulsa. Soon after, a slew of new songs started percolating, reflecting such further inspirations as Robert Earl Keen, Joe Ely and Charlie Robison. He pressed up his EP and got it up on iTunes, and then started visiting Austin to record an album. Now with Wake The Dead and his dynamic shows perking up ears thanks to his life-affirming energy, spirit and lyrical messages, he is determined to spread the sparks he’s created into a nationwide musical wildfire.
Elevator Sex is a project founded in 2012 by Singer/Songwriter turned DJ/Producer, Joshua Huot. The lift that carried him into this new movement of composition stemmed from touring with Mansions On The Moon in early 2012, as well as performing multiple DJ sets throughout the year at Central SAPC & The Mint in Los Angeles. The music spans genres including Electro, Breaks, Jazz, Hip Hop, Dub, Lounge, Soul, & more. With his friends, Steve Taylor on keys & Chris DuRant on drums, this Trio is sure to heat up any room.
