East Londoner, KELLY EREZ is the latest soul artist to break out via the internet. For the last 2 months KELLY has had her music high on the Reverbnation R&B/Soul chart – a position achieved largely via her growing online fanbase. That fanbase has helped fund her first “proper” release. The fan-funded site, www.pledgemusic.com has provided the cash for her to continue writing and recording with STEVE BUSH and AUBREY NUNN and together they’ve laid down a new five track EP – ‘This Is Me’ – which will be easily available via Defintion Music/i-tunes from February 14th.
Lead track is a great pop/soul ballad called ‘Letters’ while ‘Come To Me’ shows an altogether chillier side to the young Londoner. Listen up too to a great stripped down version of BURT BACHARACH’S ‘Close To You’. Wisley KELLY and her team let the warmth and clarity in her voice do all the work. It’s a great version of a familar song and comes across like meeting up with an old friend. For more info go to www.kellyerez.com
