Billy Kelly is a singer / songwriter / performer / animator / illustrator / entertainer / guy from Pennsylvania. His debut children’s cd, Thank You For Joining the Happy Club, was released to widespread critical acclaim and landed on several “Best of 2009” lists. For a follow-up Billy recruited none other than Davy Jones (the Monkee, not the pirate) for a duet on his second disc, Is This Some Kind of Joke? – a musical comedy album that found its way into the “Top 10 Albums of 2010” on children’s music blog Zooglobble.
Billy’s wry, sardonic humor and catchy melodies are finding a national audience thanks in part to a glowing review on National Public Radio, steady airplay from Sirius/XM Satellite Radio – where his song “People Really Like Milk” was a #1 hit – and his ambitious tour schedule with his band The Blahblahblahs. His quirky animated music videos and snazzy web site don’t hurt him any either.
Billy is back with The Family Garden, a jaunty (yes, jaunty) new cd showcasing his usual goofy songs, some impromptu jams, two cover songs – Rock Lobster, anyone? –and lots of off-the-cuff banter. Jumping from country to ragtime to rock, The Family Garden literally offers something for everyone, except people who
don’t like country, ragtime or rock. Trust us, these people exist. Anyway, everyone else is gonna love it! Billy’s goals include performing one million concerts for kids, winning seven Grammies, getting his own TV show, and inventing the self-cleaning baby.
