Kelli’s been called, “hysterical and superbly talented” by fellow artists and parents often say, “This is music I can actually listen to over and over… and over… and still enjoy!” The Portland, OR based artist shares tidbits from her life as a new mom, with songs she and her twins actually use to learn, encourage, and just have fun together.
Kelli has a Master of Publishing degree and a B.A. in Speech Communication with minors in Japanese and German. After working for Harper's Magazine in NYC, she returned to Portland, Oregon, where she started a corporate publishing business, while constantly writing songs and stories of her own. Kelli studied speech-level singing with The Voice Project and was a board member of the Portland Songwriters Association for 8 years. She's currently a member of West Coast Songwriters, Nashville Songwriters Association (NSAI), Children's Music Network, TAXI, and SCBWI.
