The new live album was funded by 350+ fans through online crowdfunding initiatives for the GO TiME series and also inspired by the millions of views and hundreds of positive comments and shares on Kelly’s proof-of-concept Pop-Up video series on YouTube featuring the saxophonist and special guests in exotic locales.
“The GO TiME: Brooklyn album was a turning point in my career as a performer who loves connecting with audiences and bringing them into the performance experience,” Kelly says. “Because we were able to use technology to capture the visual aspect and live energy of the show in a new way and debut it over Facebook Live and other online media platforms, I could really bring my whole dancing, furry-pink-boa-wearing self to the project – and the response was incredible. I wanted to keep pushing the envelope with GO TiME: Live in LA to give back to all of the fans who encourage me to keep breaking down the conventional barriers between performers and audiences. After over a decade of performing internationally and releasing albums, I’ve found that I grow so much as an artist when I focus on helping my fans feel the same exhilaration and joy that I do when I perform for them.”
GO TiME: Live in LA will be available for purchase as a digital video album, digital audio download, or physical CDs through the newly-launched store on www.gracekellymusic.com. The audio tracks will also be available on Spotify, iTunes, and other major online music streaming services.
Featured by Vanity Fair as a millennial shaking up the jazz world, Kelly’s state-of-the-art brand of electro jazz-pop and inventive digital content are pushing her to the forefront of the fusion scene, alongside names like Snarky Puppy, Jacob Collier, Cory Henry, Robert Glasper, Jon Batiste, and Too Many Zooz. Kelly’s early career featured performances at Barack Obama’s 2016 inauguration and as a soloist with the Boston Pops playing an original composition arranged for the legendary orchestra; she has since then played over 900 shows as bandleader in 35 countries at venues like the Kennedy Center and the Hollywood Bowl and for the Montreal, Newport, and Montreux international jazz festivals.
Most recently, Grace received a major nod from the John Lennon Songwriting Contest (JLSC), the preeminent international competition open to amateur and professional songwriters which was founded in 1997 in collaboration with Yoko Ono Lennon.
Kelly’s vocal and instrumental track “Feels Like Home,” whose music video features Kelly and Thirdstory’s Elliott Skinner in a soulful acoustic duet, was composed and recorded as part of her innovative 2018 video album project GO TiME: Brooklyn and will be released as a single on July 11th. Out of thousands of submissions from across the world, “Feels Like Home” was selected as the Grand Prize winner for the Country genre in December 2018 and then as a Lennon Award winner in May 2019 by popular online vote.
The composition is now one of 12 contenders for the Song of the Year award, which is judged by such musical luminaries as Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Jimmy Cliff, British pop superstar Natasha Bedingfield, and funk icon Bootsy Collins. The Song of the Year winner will take home a $20,000 check and over $10,000 in music studio equipment. Last year, the JLSC Song of the Year award was presented by Ringo Starr
