Songs of heartache and joy, harm and redemption, loss and ascension.
Irene Kelley's path toward country music began by getting kicked out of her own rock band.

Kelley played in a Led Zeppelin cover band in high school, but her band mates frowned on her suggestion of working a Dolly Parton song into the set. Kelley promptly put a new band together and began composing the songs that would help pave her way to Nashville.

In addition to her own CDs, Kelley's songs have found homes on records by Loretta Lynn ("Hold Her"), Trisha Yearwood ("O, Mexico" & "Second Chance"), Carl Jackson ("You Are A Rock And I'm A Rolling Stone"), Ricky Skaggs ("Love Can't Ever Get Better Than This"), Alan Jackson ("A Little Bluer Than That") and others. Dolly would be proud.

"A perfect blend of voice and song." - Rhonda Vincent

Roots music has always been in Mia Rose Lynne's heart.

Raised in a musical household in Northern California, Lynne was singing in public by the age of 10, adding third part harmony to her parents' original western swing band at local gigs and whisked away to bluegrass festivals each summer.

She went on to pursue a career in musical theatre, studying at Marin Theatre Company, American Conservatory Theatre, and California State University Fullerton. After sever years of touring the world as a singer-actress-dancer with Oceania and Holland America Cruise Lines, Lynne moved to Nashville to write and record her original music.

Often likened to Alison Krauss, Joni Mitchell, and Patty Griffin, Lynne writes and sings from a place of honest simplicity with an ear for unique, harmony-driven melodies. Songs feature themes of home, childhood, and lessons learned through loving.

"Captivating vocals, candid lyrics, and outstanding musicianship." - Meredith Kane, contributor at 12th and Broad
