Hard Rock Denver welcomes Kelly Aspen! Kelly’s music is an eclectic mix of mainstream Americana, Folk, Bluegrass, Country 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 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.
