Bridget Kelly Band

 B i o g r a p h y

Inspired by classic and electric blues, the Bridget Kelly Band has placed their unique stamp on the blues-rock genre; with high energy live performances and a hybrid sound that mixes Texas Blues with various Southern Blues traditions. The sultry vocals of singer Bridget Kelly and incendiary lead guitar work of Tim Fik forge a signature sound that combines female urban blues with dynamic riff-driven blues; all held together by a rugged rhythm section that features Mike Hamm on the Fender bass and Michael Barady on drums.

With the recent release of their "Forever in Blues" CD (June, 2014) the group gained serious media attention and positive reviews from the music critics in the U.S. and U.K. The album, which contained all original songs, was a top-4 pick by the International Blues Broadcasters Association (IBBA) in August, and charted regularly on the Roots Music Report (RMR) Top-50 Blues chart from mid August through October (reaching the #14 spot, the week ending October 20th). The "Forever in Blues" CD climbed to #2 on the State of Florida RMR chart and reached #1 on the Blues Debut chart, where it remained for two weeks running (week ending October 6th). The band's music also charted on the Blues411.com Chef Jimi Patricola's Baker's Dozen of the Blues chart (reaching #5 the week of November 17, 2014) and held steady at the #1 position on the Gizmo Media Stations Blues-102 IBC Blues music chart.

Music from the Bridget Kelly Band has reached the playlists of DJs hosting syndicated Blues Radio shows around the globe.
