David Kelly

Story

My name is David Kelly and I am a piano playing songwriting Addict who loves to share my music with all who desire to listen and connect. I sure hope you'll support me. I will continue to not only perfect the art of my piano playing and keyboard work but I will always promise to deliver to you the best piano and keyboard artistry I possibly can, and to deliver new music and new videos on a continuous basis. I write my music based on my mood, situations I go through, current events in life and so on. i guess that's how most writers would say that's how it goes i think but I tend not to narrow the margin by thinking too much about the genre it's gonna be while i'm writing. So because of that i think you'll be very surprised on some of the material i will be introducing and i am very excited to share all this with you because I grew up classically on the piano at the age of 5 years old. I quickly fell in love with many other styles of music as I got older and a couple styles being Blues and Rock and Roll. Even Metal, Yes Heavy Metal and although it sounds quite funny when applying it on a piano I quickly realized I need to expand my tools for my music expressions . So I began perfecting the art of organ work, listening to greats like John Lord, Keith Emerson and Rick Wakeman to name just a few and started really improving my chops all around. a drummer friend of mine hooked me up with an awesome hammond B3 and a genuine Leslie speaker and there really is nothing like it but one thing for sure, you needed a bunch of loyal roadies back in those day to load up that kinda heavy gear when nowadays you can ask your girlfriend to pass you the 11 pound rack with every sound in the book. anyway, I'm sure you know what I mean. So, please Stay Tuned, cuz I wanna Rock your World And I sure hope you'll subscribe to my youtube channel, that would be totally awesome!

How do you feel when you perform in front of an audience?

As I'm sure been said many times and so true, "There is no feeling in the world like playing live" It takes me to a different state of consciousness where nothing else exists for that moment in time and when the audience feel the magic and energy i get chills. i have also got to say that when you play live allot, you learn things to do and not to do that you wouldn't if you didn't ever perform Live. I mean magical things like playing a song you;e played for months and then i would make a small mistake and listen back and it was not a mistake but yet magical and began executing in the song thereafter. Also commanding stages can only be perfected by commanding stages, and every stage is a little different. when I played The Whiskey in Hollywood, it was a tighter fit configuration and had to learn how to make the best of a smaller design and still look cool. when I played the Ventura Terrace Theatre in Ventura California it was huge and had to utilize much larger amounts of space with the boys and look cool doing it and try not to get to tangled up which helped practicing in the rehearsal studio. In the 80s we would visit the Club we were playing quite a few times before our gig checking out sound checks of other bands in the day and then handing out flyers all night on the strip. Also back then even though there were wireless mics and such, we still used corded mics due to interference issues unless you really had a good wireless rig so learning the right way to rock with a 50 foot cable was interesting, but i also had a microphone tech in my number of roadies, pretty smart huh, he would straighten the cable out during certain noted break and stuff like the guitar or drum solo etc. And i know these days that's not as common but in the 80s, solos were the things and i mean like 10 minutes run solos and shit. Yah.
