Genre: Folk

Kelley McRae grew up in Mississippi, but calls Brooklyn home. Her albums Never Be (Producer JD Foster: Calexico) and Highrises in Brooklyn (Producer Brian Deck: Iron and Wine, Josh Ritter) have found impressive fans: Paste Magazine gave her four stars, WNYC's Soundcheck named her performance one of the year's best and Bob Harris of BBC Radio called her 'brilliant.' Her songs have been featured on MTV, in the Sundance film Children of Invention, on an international Unicef commercial, and on the hit TV show Army Wives. She counts the acclaimed German filmmaker Wim Wenders as one of her most loyal fans and she has been called on to lend her vocals to Asthmatic Kitty artist The Welcome Wagon.
