In Kelly's own words, “Catch Me I’m Falling” is reminiscent of a "Curtis Mayfield & The Impressions song that was recorded in LA with a stripped down wrecking crew and Thom Bell producing." The video was directed by filmmaker Omar Juarez, who's done videos for artists like The Arcs and more in the past, and his Chicano-inspired video treatment shines a new light on the love song. The Vinyl District called the song “a lovely dose of lilting, sweet soul ” in a new feature, read their full story here: https://bit.ly/2BBYduJ
‘The Tales People Tell’ is the story of an outsider that followed an unorthodox route, always guided by his own creative north star. Throughout the record Kelly channels a resistance of formal musical education, and rather, embraces collaboration, in addition to the beauty of musical error, and a multitude of influences that reflect a lifetime immersed in the music and culture of soul, R&B, and hip-hop.
While in Monophonics, Kelly toured with artists like Charles Bradley and George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic, and appeared at major festivals including Outside Lands and Montreux Jazz Festival. This year, Kelly will tour across the west coast in support of ‘The Tales People Tell,’ with additional dates for the rest of the US to be announced soon.
