Born and raised in Chicago, IL Kells Dougie gained a love for music at a young age. However, he gravitated more to the musical genre he heard most coming up, Hip-Hop. You can find work by Kells posted on numerous websites with the most updated being http://www.reverbnation.com/kellsdougie . Now 23 years of age with a better feel himself for writing and putting together music he finds himself gaining performance invites, with his most notable thus far being at Reggie’s Rock Club in Chicago. He also sees a huge gain in the positive feedback for his music through social media. Although much love is received Kells is the first to pass credit to past great artist like Big Daddy Kane, Rakim, Tupac Shakur, Nas, Notorious B.I.G and a list of others. As he feels these artists all played a part in and helped shape his writing style and ability. In fact, Tupac Shakur was the main reason he ever picked up a pad and pencil. If you ever listen to such serious tracks by Kells like “Excuses” that’s the exact feel you get, whenever you listen to Kells you hear a sense of seriousness and get that same exact vibe. This vibe Kells credits to coming up in Chicago where you witness to nothing but real issues, and also to his family raising him with realness yet telling him to be better. So he feels if his people could remain positive and real why couldn’t he through his music, which is exactly how he keeps it. Kells doesn’t have the plan of stopping neither as he’s not the type to settle nor not the type to not grow in his craft. He’s set to strive as a musician as he aims to continue writing songs people could feel, increase his positive musical feedback and also bring in as many shows as possible.
