Kelley Anderson is an artist based in Memphis, TN. The imagery and ideas in her work conjure up Gram parson’s “cosmic American music” – a blend of blues, country, and gritty rock’n’roll blended into a sound that is uniquely her own. Anderson uses her experience in sound engineering to create wide sonic textures, incorporating those soundscapes into more traditional song structures of the American musical canon.
Ever an innovator, she founded the Southern Girls Rock Camp and Youth Empowerment through Arts & Humanities (YEAH!), an organization that helps young people find their power through music. Prior to her current work, Anderson founded and toured internationally with the band Those Darlins, releasing two full-length albums and several singles with the group.
