Oh!Kelly is energetic, layered, and visceral.
The brain-child of Jared O'Kelley (VOX), Oh!Kelly composes American rock with the joys of Pop, the melancholy of Blues, and the empowerment of Punk into a self-proclaimed "identity crisis" that can bounce between Top-40 hooks and deep track ALT/indie broods like a sushi sampler served with french fries. Oh!Kelly's live show evokes a wide range of emotions that connect audiences of all ages, as nostalgic flare for 90's and early 00's headbang along in tracks like "History...Repeating" and "Nepotism", and progressive vibes fit the modern bill with "Howling at the Moon". This gumbo mashup of sub-genres is made possible by all-star musicians, seasoned respectively in their own backgrounds, ranging from Metal and Lo-fi to Top-40 and Gospel.
At live shows, creative video visuals and kinetic lighting amplify the music, painting stories in the mind through color and media. Every song leaves audiences with an artistic visual impression open for interpretation.
Oh!Kelly is also a platform for collaborations off stage through their #WeAreOhK initiative, working with local artists of all mediums to make its mission a multi-sensory experience.
