Kelly Prescott is a third generation singer/songwriter, hailing from two musically renowned family lines. She has naturally inherited the foundation to follow her musical heart, drawing inspiration from her great Canadian roots.
When her voice is blended with steel guitars and fiddles, country music lovers from way-back-when hear a kindred soul. When she spins the dial forward a few decades, it’s clear she’s part of a new generation that’s making new sounds and big waves.
Kelly has released four albums and a new EP ft. Jim Cuddy and Buddy Miller. Her past endeavours with former group, The Claytones, garnered a nomination for Americana Album of the Year at the Independent Music Awards in 2015. They were in the top Folk/Roots albums of 2014 on Stingray Music and won the Galaxie Rising Star Award at the 2013 Ottawa Folk Festival.
Kelly and her brother, Kaylen proudly wrote, produced and recorded the official 2015 campaign song for Justin Trudeau and the Liberal Party of Canada.
“Take one part Loretta Lynn, add a splash of Joan Jett and a little Townes Van Zandt, and you’ve got Mariel Buckley. She has proven to be a songwriting pro and her Canadian roots produce distinctly alt-country songs, with a fresh take on the classic sounds of her predecessors.” – Gillian Turnbull, No Depression
