"without the darkness, we would never see the stars" - Anais Nin

Kelli Frances Corrado is a solo artist, a folktronica singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. Coupling bittersweet, ethereal vocals with grandiose strings (violin and autoharp) underscored by a sinister metronome of pulsing drums, sythns and loops, her tracks are dark, atmospheric and enchanting. Her music has been home to recordings, sound installations, grants and artist-in-residency programs. She received her first grant, from the Grammy Foundation and her first release 'Diamond Matter', Aphonia Recordings was played on the BBC6 Radio, London and featured in The Girls Are. Kelli's sophomore release 'SHEPHERDESS' is out on Flat Field Records. With video 'Swan Initiative' being highlighted by NME. She has had a nomadic history as a tap dancer, military-wife, social worker, and music teacher. A history that has influenced her innovative approach to arranging. Recording in an assortment of weird and wonderful places, including a seaplane port, church, boat house, warehouse with six-second reverb and an old school from the 1900's. She has worked with a wish list, revolving mix of artists, she refers to as her Hocus Pocus Orchestra. Including producers Brian Deck (Iron and Wine/Califone), Jeffery Mcnulty (Vera Project) and Shawn Hatfield (Amon Tobin) to name a few.
