Zerimar, Album 2008

Hailing from Greenville, SC, The Kelly Jo Connect is a fiery combination of soul, pop, rock, and latin music, drawing inspirations from bands like The Pretenders, Mother’s Finest and Carlos Santana just to name a few. They are a reverberating powerhouse, clocking in with six members whose backgrounds range from gospel to grunge. Kelly Jo leads the pack with soaring, smoky vocals as the Connect precisely interpret and freely explore her original music.

Kelly Jo has been captivating audiences throughout the Southeast as a solo act for years with her inimitable sound, combining strong, seductive vocals with percussive, tight rhythm guitar. After years on the local bar circuit, she produced her first solo album ZerimaR in 2008, which earned her much fanatic and critical acclaim. The project landed the attention of Grammy nominated producer Kent Wells in Nashville, TN. Inspired by Kelly Jo’s unique style, Wells stepped outside his country background to produce her current EP My Favorite Mountain.

The KJC have a great reputation for putting on great, moving shows filled with originals and maybe even some tasteful covers. They have had strong support from several regional and internet radio stations (WROQ, WNCW, WXRY et al). Last year we opened Fall for Greenville and Downtown Alive, two major Southeastern music festivals. We have played alongside Karl Denson's Tiny Universe, The Work, and Kelly Jo even opened for Grammy award winner Shelby Lynne on her 2008 tour.
