Kelly Aspen / Bio


Kelly's music is an eclectic mix of mainstream Americana, Folk, Bluegrass and Rock.   She's drawn to complex musical productions that encompass acoustic roots and stringed instruments such as banjo, mandolin and dobro; a sound that her Nashville producer Ilya Toshinsky (former Bering Strait member) brought to life in her 2007 album release titled “Chasing Butterflies” including cuts from hit songwriters including Billy Montana, Jamie O’Neal and Kris Bergnes.

Kelly's bands contain the best players Colorado has to offer.  She’s opened for countless major recording artists including Sara Evans, Pat Green, Lonestar, Mark Wills, Phil Vassar, Ty England, Aaron Tippin, Billy Currington, Charlie Daniels Band and Blake Shelton.

Kelly graced the cover of “Colorado Music Buzz Magazine”, was the center spread story in “Vocals Magazine”, and has been featured in countless editorials such as “The Westword”, “5280” and “Mile High Sports Magazine”.

Kelly’s been heard nationally on syndicated radio programs such as “A Prairie’s Home Companion” with Garrison Keillor on Public Broadcast Radio, “The Conman Radio Show” on Jones Media Network, and regionally receives regular airplay from many Colorado radio stations.  Recently, Kelly's original song “Crazy Like That” was featured on the Canadian t.v. hit “Heartland”, she starred in the reality show “Shoot Colorado” on Rocky Mountain PBS, was a highlighted artist in a Discovery channel music documentary, and was named Denver's “Next Big Star” on KWGN news.
