I AM KELLY CONDRON.
Nick DePartee, guitarist for the metal band Kutless, came up to me after one of the first festivals I ever played and, shaking his head, said, “I really like your sound.” Right then it hit me. A lot of people like soulful music.
Over the course of multiple tours I have had the chance to talk with so many types of people from so many walks of life– teenagers, truckers, drug addicts, grandpas, hipsters, moms going through hard times, and moms going through great times– and I realized that my music can reach so much further than I ever dreamed.
I’ve already had the chance to play with some pretty amazing groups (Phil Wickham, Switchfoot, Relient K, Keri Noble, John Reuben, and Kutless to name a few) and am thrilled at the prospect of being able to play with even more (hopefully Beyonce, but I’ll let you know).
What’s that? You want to know more about me? Well, ok. I was raised around Chicago and started singing (badly at first) at church. My parents were missionaries in Indonesia and I spent a few years there singing to Mariah Carey and Whitney Houston for lack of other things to do. I watched MTV videos for hours on end and couldn’t get enough. It was around 6th grade I decided I wanted to be a singer and it’s been a blur ever since. I went to college and got a degree in music and started playing with musicians around Chicago after graduating.
Multiple tours later, I have had amazing opportunities to play on TV stations, radio shows, festivals, and every type of venue you can imagine.
Some amazing people I’ve met along the way have been so kind to say:
