"“Music X-Ray (2012)"

“Music X-Ray (2012) I Want A Black Girl by Keli Raven Free form review This song made me both laugh and start bobbing right away. I loved the subject matter, and thought the vocal delivery was appropriately sleezy-sounding, complementing the lyrics really well. I couldn't tell if this was tongue-in-cheek or not, but this song sounds like rock in the Salty Dog kind of style that would appeal to lots of guys, although I like it, too. It's a very raw and visceral tune that prompts immediate head-banging. Its musical simplicity and home-recorded sound combine with the gritty vocals and lyrics to convey a somewhat disconcerting but appealing voodoo kind of sound. You've done a great job of writing, performing and producing a song with a style of your own. Keep up the great work! Thanks for letting me listen to your music.” - Music X-Ray


“'It's taken me quite sometime to develope the sound of KELI RAVEN. In a nutshell it's 'modern, it's unique, and it's very sex drivin'”

Finally, we both had time to co-write 'Bad Boyz 4 Life' and I'm blessed 2 have him on the new album as well as a continued brother and mentor in my life. Lemmy is a great man and I will always remain a loyal friend 2 him as he as 2 me"......

With a family deeply rooted in the entertainment industry, you find yourself emerging early mornings from the studio ....You've been laying tracks for CD’s by artists, Kiss, Tom Jones and Vinnie Vincent among others. For Keli there’s no escaping it. He is deep to the core, singing, playing guitar, bass, percussion and producing.....
Influences ranging from the Beatles, Rush and Todd Rundgren to Smashing Pumpkins and Earth Wind &Fire, across the spectrum to Outkast, Madonna, Michael Jackson , Marilyn Manson and Celine Dion.
Born in Manhattan, Keli first hit Los Angeles as a preteen. As he had done in NYC, he garnered auditions and roles in film, commercials and television.
“As a kid, I was unsure of what I wanted to do, act or play music. All I knew was that no matter what, it would involve performing on stage. When time allowed, I made it out to the night clubs and concert halls. The first band I saw was Kiss, then Motley Crue, I just flipped. I knew this was the career I wanted”.

At 18 he cut his teeth alongside such artists as Guns N Roses, Poison and L.A. Guns. Being a multiple instrumentalist didn’t hurt either. Numerous city performances, featured guitarist with legendary country artist ‘David Allen Coe’ in Hawaii, sharing the stage with heavy metal icon ‘Lemmy Kilmister’ and ‘Motorhead’, touring some Asian countries, all have culminated to enable him in the development of a unique sound in his recordings and live performances.
Under the guidance of award wining songwriter - producer Howard Rice, Keli co-produced his first CD. He discovered that being on the producing end was equally as rewarding and just as much fun. Keli continues to push the envelope with his cutting edge solo performances.
