Kelly Walsh - Songwriter
Hailing from Block Island, RI.
Growing up, my sibs and I spun in circles while dad strummed from a catalogue of pre-rock folk and country tunes. My brother learned to play guitar and we raided our parents collection of 70's top forty albums.
College radio was a dream come true -- I literally lived at the URI radio station, learning to DJ and procuring free tickets to shows. Stomping through the rich local music offerings in Providence's 1980's, resonating with the emotionally raw punk rock scene, embedded in the culture and comraderie of local bands.
