Kelly Lynn Barber / Press

“Kelly Lynn Barber, 20, has been singing all her life and started playing the guitar and writing at age 12. Taking heavy influences from Pop/Rock icons such as Avril Lavigne and Kelly Clarkson, Kelly has been performing around the tri-state area on a regular basis with a debut EP, “Cold Reality,” already under her belt.”

“Kelly has played at venues across the great State of New Jersey, as well as here in State College. She has brought us tons of original talent and executes cover songs with grace. Now she is stepping into the big leagues with an official music video! Showing us her true punk rock attitude, she hits us with her latest song titled “My Own Contradiction” and to accompany it is a sassy yet heartfelt music video."”

“Her music is quite unique as it is a mix of pop rock, alternative rock, indie, and something all her own. You might not know who she is yet, but believe me, you will in time.”

“Bridgewater, New Jersey native Kelly Lynn Barber will be making her New York City debut this summer- on Aug., the 20-year-old college student will be performing at the legendary Bitter End. A solo artist who takes influence from early 2000's female pop/rock icons as well as modern rock and punk bands, Kelly told AXS.com that she aims to model her career "after the way Avril [Lavigne] did back when she started out.. For me, I want to do the same thing and make it 100 percent about the music."”

“Kelly claims that she wants to 'bring the same emotional experiences to her audience that she has when she listens to the raw music that she loves.' And we certainly think she is heading in the right direction.”

“When she was 9 years old, Kelly Barber found her mother's old guitar in the basement, and proceeded to ask for her own for her birthday - and now the Bridgewater-Raritan High School graduate has released her own four-song EP.”

“Her music style is very raw and is not overproduced in any way. What she sounds like on her EP is exactly what she will sound like during a live performance. I have listened to some of her music myself and found her voice to be very honest with a slight bit of edginess to it.”

“Pop lyrics and beat but with rock instruments.”
