Ann Kelly is a California vocalist & songwriter based in Los Angeles. She has been performing her songs live around the West Coast to critical acclaim: ..."dark, sultry, emotional vocals ...a unique blend of pop, jazz and blues."  Ann performs with stellar musicians such as Emmy award winning composer and keyboardist Mark Ross, guitarist Tim Pierce and Emmy award winner Danny Pelfrey on Sax. These players join Ann on her distinctly original solo debut EP, 'Petals and Thorns' (on October Daze Records, produced by Mark Ross)

"...From her dusky, blue-smoke delivery of the bluesy "She Dances Alone," to the I'm wise-to -you-buster vibe of 'Who Do You Think You're Foolin,' to the snarky irony of the infectious "It Must Be Good To Be King", Kelly's performances strike the right note of assertiveness, playfulness, and hurt - a femme fatal undermined by a vulnerable heart..."

..."With strong catchy tunes written by Kelly and Ross, Ross' crisp,uncluttered production and arrangements, and standout performances by pros who obviously love music, 'Petal and Thorns' is a collection of well conceived and extremely well executed  songs that should get lots of action on radio..."
