Chicago based musician Kelly Zullo has been around the world playing music since the late 90's. Moving briefly to NYC, Europe & Nashville, as well as experiencing great wanderlust, this lyricist and guitarist molds the gypsy-esque mantra with philosophical bite over a rio...tous acoustic guitar.
Not often has a more energetic acoustic music emerged which features a female guitarist shredding acoustic guitar riffs over a percussive bang, which not only highlights a unique style, but showcases an ability to blend the drum set in a loop with the top shelf songwriting.
Recently winning the International Acoustic Music Awards for "Best Female Artist, comparisons from Ani Difranco to Kaki King are drawn. The group Iron Maiden, in an online review called her music "Excellent!" while both were in Croatia in 2011.
Widely appealing to many tastes, another highlight is the unexpected covers, such as a disco acoustic version of "Funkytown" or "Staying Alive", which echo a more serious 'I really am just staying alive' angle on the tune.
Please join us in welcoming Kelly to CT & to the stage at The Outer Space for a short set.
NO cover, head down for happy hour & stay for the great music!
