Rhona Kelley / Press

"My Own True Love" selected as one of Under the Radar's "Top Gourmet Songs of 2010"

“Rhona Kelley may be a freshman to the music scene, but her charming debut, Quite Contrary, proves she is ready to graduate top of the class. Though taking cues from folk greats like Joni Mitchell and Joan Baez, Kelley brings something distinctly hers to the genre. The songs are breezy without being shallow and give Kelley's voice room to contract and expand...Quite Contrary is both smart and easy to listen to, and Kelley's voice plays a starring role. Fans of Fiona Apple, Leigh Nash, and any of the aforementioned artists will want to add Rhona Kelley to their music collection. With a debut this strong, Kelley is an artist to keep an eye on.”

“Rich, lush, playful, literate and provocative; it's been a long time since I could say that about a new record. Rhona Kelley delivers all that and more. Blending the best elements of classic folk artists like Joni Mitchell and Carole King with elements of jazzy classic pop and her own high level of skill and style, Kelley has put together one of the most pleasing new records of the year. East Nashville will be proud of this one!”
