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

Kelli Frances Corrado is a folktronica singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. Coupling bittersweet, ethereal vocals with grandiose violins, cellos and autoharp, underscored by a sinister metronome of pulsing drums and loops, her tracks are dark, atmospheric and enchanting. Influenced by a nomadic history as a tap dancer, military-wife, social worker, and music teacher. She takes an 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. Working with a wish list mix of artists like Brian Deck (Iron and Wine/Califone), Jeffery Mcnulty (Vera Project), Shawn Hatfield (Amon Tobin) and other cool folk. Her music has been home to recordings, sound installations, grants and artist-in-residency programs.Touring extensively, performing at cavernous venues like E’space B Paris, to critically acclaimed theater On The Boards, Seattle. Songs are featured on a widespread of Stations from the BBC6 London to Hollow Earth Radio, Seattle. Her newest release SHEPHERDESS came out June 19, 2014 on Flat Field Records.
