Kelly Jean Caldwell and Top Magic Records cordially invite you to celebrate the highly anticipated release (in certain circles, at least) of Kelly's brand new 7" vinyl on Saturday, December 18, 2010 at Atlas Bar in Hamtramck, Michigan.
Opening the show will be the always fantastic Aran Ruth, and Everybody's In, a new band featuring Secret Twins, T-Bone, and Derek Stanton of Awesome Color.
Recently named "Best Local Songwriter" by Real Detroit Weekly, former Saturday Looks Good To Me singer Kelly Jean Caldwell wears her heart on her sleeve onstage. KJC lives up to her RDW title– she truly is a brilliant songwriter and puts more emotion and boldness into each performance than most people could summon in a lifetime. Kelly is backed by some of the top fellas in Detroit, including her husband, Brian Blair, Kevin Sullivan, Terrible Twos' Craig Brown, Sugarcoats/Lee Marvin Computer Arm drummer Todd McNulty.
In true Michigan fashion, KJC was conceived in the upper peninsula on Halloween night, 1977, in the dugout of the Cooks Little League baseball field. Her father was costumed as a great black bear, and her mother as a sexy nurse. This wild scene securely set the stage for the rest of her northern childhood. Since moving down to southeastern Michigan after a brief stopover in Nashville, Tennessee, Kelly has sung with numerous local groups and is a well-known fixture on the metro Detroit rock club circuit.
Kelly's 7″ on Top Magic marks her first solo release on vinyl, and Top Magic's first foray into the mildly psychedelic side of music. The A-side is a real slow build-up rocker called "Outside Heart," and the B-side is a heartfelt tune called "Diamonds." Limited edition, 200 only! Painstakingly hand-numbered. Records will be available for 5 bones at the show, and shortly thereafter at many of the finer shops in the Detroit metropolis.
