Kelli Said : This Is a Demonstration
So how did we begin? Us two kids, Kelli & Keith formed the band in Winter of 2001. We both shared such a history and love for music that the only obvious outlet was to start creating songs together. We began writing tunes full of feelings and emotions brought on by past memories, current situations and hopes for the future. We thank all the past and present local and national musicians that influenced us. Without the pioneers, we wouldn't be here! How did we go public? The excitement & encouragement from our families and friends inspired us to take this passion for song-writing & self record our first CD 'Ear Candy'. There were two reasons for this recording: The first, to see what response we would get from the public. The second, to find and form a band that blended like personalities, talents and goals. 'Ear Candy' also gave other musicians an idea of who we were and what stylistic direction we were headed in. Once we became a foursome, we self recorded a second CD, appropriately titled 'This is a Demonstration'. We felt the need to give local club owners and fans an idea of what we sounded like live. The word was out and the public began to take notice. Where have we played? With the additions of Dazz and G, we've had the pleasure and opportunity to play with a lot of great bands in many great venues around the Denver/Front range area. Well known establishments such as The Soiled Dove, Herman's Hideaway, the historical Gothic Theatre, and most recently performing at an outdoor event with DaDa. We continue to expand and look forward to touring and performing at a venue near you. What lies ahead? It's the Summer of 2005 and the buzz is out about our next CD, again appropriately titled, 'Let's Get This On'. We recorded this awesome CD at nationally known Colorado Sound Studios. This CD will not only show how far we have come from four dreamers heading down to the basement to be a part of the great world of music, but also relays the knowledge that only can be gained through writing, performance and experience. 'Let's Get This On' not only captures the excitement of what our future holds, it exudes our undying love, passion and musicial belief for our band, KELLI*SAID. To you the listener: Get ready for the musical nirvana for your ears and eyes! You will be hooked! 'her voice and singing style are quite unique from most female vocalists i've heard' and 'kelli*said have the art of songwriting down....keep your eye on this band' passion, denverlocalmusicscene.com.
