Hello everyone!
We will be putting out our new CD Blues warrior in the spring or early summer. I am hoping for June 1, 2018 or sooner with early distribution at the Blues Music Awards in Memphis on May 10th.

This CD is called Blues Warrior. Content was inspired by personal stories of adversity and my life experiences and include social topics such as homelessness, addiction, domestic violence and human trafficking that have affected me deeply.

Stolen is a song about human trafficking. While driving through the desert in a very remote area near New Mexico while touring I saw a rest stop women's bathroom door with a  lock on the outside and sitting in the parking lot was a white van. I wasn't alone and I noticed the lock but was scared. The experience rattled me and made me aware of human trafficking. I also started noticing posters in many of the bathrooms around the country trying to help. Watching videos and learning more about those who have been stolen we wrote Stolen. Listening to the play back I sobbed and my mom couldn't even listen to the whole thing. 

Snow Fall is a song about heroin addiction. Tim is a board member on NurseNBlues headed by Patti Parks and that has brought more insight into this horrible addiction. As we learn more and more about young adults and heroin addiction we are devastated by the numbers and the statistics of young people in our country dying from heroin overdose. It's an epidemic, so we wrote the song Snow Fall. 

The song about the homeless was inspired when I was walking home from the Daytona Blues Festival in the night after playing a wonderful event and I was walking across the bridge and I saw old homeless men and women rolled up in tarps sleeping against the bridge in the cold. They became invisible because they were tucked neatly against the wall and people driving by couldn't even see them. In the winter in Florida I also see a lot of homeless asking for money on street corners.

The song I domestic violence (I think it's called it’s called No Good Man but I will also get check that) is a song about a woman whose really beaten by her spouse and she decides to leave him.  For those paying attention, this social and community ill is too-wide spread not be recognized and called out and stopped when seen.

Cabrini Green is a song about the loss of community in Chicago when they tore Cabrini-Green down. I was living near there an often visited Chicago throughout College and watched us they demolished the buildings. What really wasn't talked about was how it destroyed the generations and community of that area mostly for greed. The song is blues rock song, 1 -4 -5 progression with heavy guitar.  

CHEMO was inspired by Candye Kane and her fight and loss of life from cancer. I watched her fight for her life in the most noble and strong way. My heart goes out to Laura who lost the love of her life. It is also dedicated to two people that I lost from cancer my Grandma Kelly and Joyce Hanken. Chemo is a terrible song it is dark and horrible with a loss of life at the end. True blues.

My Little Honey Bee is a Love Song that includes making honey in the bed, a funny happy little song that helps balance the whole CD with its dark topics.

We will be going out on tour for June and July supporting the CD and playing all over the country. Doug Tackett is AMAZING and booking the Bridget Kelly Band now. 

Much love to you all. Hope to see you out there.
