Irene Kelley's love for country music runs deep. She remembers hearing it for the first time in her dad's basement TV repair workshop as a young girl. That music in her family home resonated in her soul, so when Irene started writing songs on her own, she already had a head start. At 15, she began her journey as a professional musician in a rock band, but when she brought a Dolly Parton album to band rehearsal one day, she was fired on the spot. It was, perhaps, the best thing that could have happened to her.
Her latest project is a return to her beginnings. "Bluegrass is the last frontier of country music," Irene says, and it's true that country stars like Keith Whitley, Vince Gill, Marty Stuart and cut their teeth on Bill Monroe's genre of music. "I was a Music Row songwriter for 20 years in addition to being a recording artist. I really enjoyed that time, but the business part of it has really changed."
Irene is thrilled to be releasing her 2nd album for Mountain Fever Records, Benny's TV Repair to be released May 10, 2019. Both musically and spiritually, she is connecting past and present and exploring the themes of love, loss and of her life.
