"...a one-woman repository of pristinely angelic and creepy minimalist pop." -C-Ville Weekly
elly Kate is stirring a sound that will thrum in your bones and echo within the chambers of your heart. With haunting lyrics to light the way, she builds layered melodies that swell and descend like the hills she called home. Lilting, minimal and ever-imaginative vocals take us on an adventure where global conflicts and interpersonal struggles alike are touched upon with honesty and gravity. With a cache of experimental instruments from antiquated typewriters, outdated Casio tones, and homemade music boxes, Nelly creates, 'a warmth akin to nostalgic memories of youthful days spent playing pretend' [from macrock.org].
With two full-length albums and four solid tours under her wings, she has nestled herself in Richmond, VA. In March, her long-awaited sophomore album was released; 'ISH ISH,' was made with two 4-tracks and a reel-to-reel and was produced by Brent Delventhal. Go see her live performances which have led her to share the stage with the likes of Tune-Yards, DIIV, Frankie Rose, Pattern Is Movement, Pat Jordache, SoftSpot, Tickley Feather, Castanets, James Wallace, and The Extraordinaires.
