Kelly Rouke is an independent singer/songwriter from Wilmington, Delaware. 'Home Gypsys' is her debut album recorded in 2007 at Turtle Studios in Philadelphia, PA. The influences in these songs are far ranging - in percentages it might look something like this: 1/8 blues, 1/8 funk, 1/16/ jazz, 1/32 country/bluegrass, 1/12 americana, or in other words 100% indie (so please don't do the math). Some of the incredibly talented musicians who played with Kelly on this album include: Bart Yoder (bass), Chuck Treece (drums), Adam Davis (lead guitar, pedal steel and dobro), Ross Bellenoit (lead and rhythym guitar), Monica McIntyre (cello), Carlos Izaguierre (percussion), Mike Eberly (rhythym guitar), and Adrien Reju (back-up vocals). Kelly wrote the music and lyrics for all songs on 'Home Gypsys' as well as playing rhythym acoustic on all songs and piano on several tracks. Kelly began studying piano at 6 and guitar at 11. She has sung and performed in several bands over the past 15 years and also spent five years performing in musical theater productions in the area. Kelly grew up in Wilmington and on a farm in Middletown, Delaware. She currently resides in Wilmington. Sad Patrick, an acoustic songwriter in Philadelphia, describes the music on 'Home Gypsys' as 'Grace Slick and P-funk versus Patti Smith and the Texas Playboys.'
