We will be hosting on of my favorite local groups, Radio Stranger (Kelly Brightwell and Woody Moran) on Sunday April 8. We love the music of Radio Strager. An amalgamation of the various styles the principles have pursued through their musical careers. Woody has been more pop and rock oriented musician and songwriter. Kelly, has been an Americana writer and performer for years beginning in her native Minneapolis, Minnesota.
Together they produce songs with beautiful poetic images and a deep propulsive groove. We think you will love them and their music as much as we do.
From Kelly’s website:
Hearts and Home, Kelly Brightwell’s newest offering, is the product of years of soul-searching and personal growth.
When her debut EP, Wait for Your Spring, was released, her aspiration to be a nationally touring artist seemed to be well on its way to becoming reality. Her songs received airplay on community and college radio stations across the Midwest, Colorado and California. NPR featured her tune “Rockets” on their All Songs Considered website. Satirical cultural observer The Onion picked up her rising star and featured her album in their national outlets. And her songs “Knee Deep” and “Daffodils” garnered her an honorable mention at that year’s Rocky Mountain Folks Fest Songwriting Contest.
Kelly has released a couple of EPs with friend and co-writer Woody Moran under the moniker Radio Stranger. She is currently working toward her next full length solo record, due out in 2018.
From Woody’s website:
Oregon-based folk-rocker Woody Moran is a singer/songwriter with a truly unique sound. Woody weaves excellent guitar skills with breezy, laid back vocals. His lyrics tell captivating stories and he’s got a knack for catchy melodies. Music Connection Magazine’s glowing review of his latest recording, “Sitting In Aztec Chairs” commented, “Moran’s a relaxed, genial artist whose music conjures a kinder, gentler, friendlier world, one we can all experience, at least for a short while.”
We are very excited to have Woody and Kelly back on our stage. We think you will be glad as well once you hear them.
