Kelli Scarr was raised in Folsom, California, the old gold rush town now more famous for its prison than its prospectors. First discovering her passion for singing in the choirs of her local church and high school, Kelli left the west coast to attend music school in Boston and eventually landed in Brooklyn, NY. Over the next ten years she explored her way through various projects and collaborations including the bands Moonraker and Salt & Samovar. Kelli also ventured into film scoring and in 2010 received an Emmy nomination for her score to Jeremiah Zagar’s intimate documentary, In A Dream. Prior to the nomination, Kelli was given the opportunity to perform as a solo artist opening for the musician Moby on his world tour. Spanning four continents and two years, it was during this time that Kelli was able to expand her sketches of songs into fully developed narratives. These muted snapshots became fully realized in Kelli’s acclaimed debut solo album “Piece”, released July 2010 on Silence Breaks. Kelli toured this record for most of 2010 and 2011, harnessing the rugged energy of her skillful group of musicians and molding the palette for her follow up album.
