Chicago native, Astra Kelly, is a pure talent with a lyric-based, melodic sound and soaring vocals. Her voice and message are intentional and unfeigned, while her songs replicate otherwise indescribable emotions. She infuses metaphysical and psychological metaphors into her lyrics: mirroring the genuine human experience and all the beautiful grit that goes with it. Her performances are passionate, full of energy and a powerful expression of her art and sound. Eclectic in style and genre, her original music draws from her soulful Chicago roots fused with indie folk and americana and she uniquely pays tribute to other artists. She’s a career artist who has toured the country extensively, performs well over two hundred shows a year and has released eight records on her own label. Influenced by folk, country, and bluegrass, her latest release, “Chasing the Light,” is a journey of transformation from the inside out and connects to a universal heartbeat.
