Robert Kelly is an artist on a journey. With his guitar by his side, Robert has traveled the world exploring, writing and diving into adventure. Robert grew up near Dallas, TX and was writing songs at age 15. He then made his way to Nashville to pursue music at Belmont University, spending summers working with children in Africa and traveling the Middle East by himself, with only a backpack and guitar.

He’s performed at universities, clubs, and coffee shops across the country and opened for Matt Wertz, Dave Barnes, Jon McLaughlin and Andy Davis, four artists that have inspired Robert on a path to pursue a career as an independent artist.

Robert’s joyful personality, as well as his journey as a singer/songwriter, has developed within him a special sort of optimism. Hearing Robert perform, it’s apparent that these high hopes shine through in his music. This cannot be more evident than on his latest album ‘We Are Poetry,’ which debuted at #15 on the iTunes Singer/Songwriter chart.

‘We Are Poetry’ is a pop/rock album at its finest and the perfect introduction to Robert Kelly, a true artist in the making. Filled with ten stories about the many pages we turn in our lives, Robert has created a collection of songs that have a vision. The Deli magazine praised its “upbeat energy that makes each song uplifting in a way that few can achieve.”

On ‘We Are Poetry’ Robert shares stories about holding on & letting go, moving forward & standing still, falling in love & appreciating everything life has to offer us. The opening track, “Be Here Now,” inspires us to embrace life. It also provides the first glimpse of Robert’s point of view as he sings “I’d rather live and be broken than never live at all.”

We live in an attention deficit era of multi-tasking with our lives spinning faster than we can sometimes handle. ‘We Are Poetry’ is an opportunity to take a break from the everyday; to help us slow down, breathe it in and appreciate the journey.

There are likely big hits, bright lights and more accolades to come for Robert Kelly as he continues on his journey of exploring, writing, sharing stories with people and experiencing the many joys life has to offer us all. ‘We are Poetry’ is only the start, and it’s an amazing one at that.

Robert’s life, like the rest of us, has been full of happiness and pain and joy and wonder and love and heartbreak. It’s evident that more than anything, he wants to connect with people through music, and know he’s not alone in how he feels.

So, by all means, sing along.
