How you doin'', my name is Kevin Kelly (aka The Great Legendary Unknown).
Welcome to my country. I''m a method singer/songwriter off Broadway out of
the Actors Studio via Bleecker Street & CBGB''s in NYC. Written thousand songs. 30 plays. Acted 100 shows. First album, a rock ''n roll valentine to old hunting grounds 42nd & 10th to The East Village "Down In Tompkins Square Park", (released post-humorously on the tail of "Lost In The Cracks Of The Modern World" release out my window to birds on the wire.) In Chelsea, I wrote, acted, directed "The Street In The Kid" (a play with music about a midget outside a whore house in Times Square) and in Venice, I wrote,
acted, directed "Ain''t No Coyotes In Poughkeepsie" (a play with music about a working class family in a trailer park off Route 44.)
Then I fell big time in love and suffered a breakdown in a season of hell.
They say you can''t go home again so what did I do? I went home again. Wound up under a bridge, moved out to the https://www.tradebit.comn somehow off the railroad tracks I got on a train going west. First song I wrote? "In LA Without A Car". (I''ve since graduated to "Car World".) Did the coffeehouse scene with The Zych Brothers (musician twins Matt & John), wrote a play with music for homeless kids "StarShine" at The Lee Strasberg Institute, worked with Eva Marie Saint in "Names" and wrote a poem/song for it that Jimmy Breslin''s youngest son Chris performed called "Jimmy Hayes".
Done a buncha indy films recently & walked the proverbial high wire in a solo theatre piece about the revolution going on in my apartment called https://www.tradebit.com (which two-time Academy Award Winner and fellow Actors Studio member Marty Landeau helped shepherd.)
A Cindy Sheehan-inspired, anti-war song I wrote "Noble Cause" was showcased down in Wall Street on David Rothenberg''s 99.5 WBAI-FM renowned Saturday Morning Radio Show and featured on "United States Of Conciousness" produced by Mike Giangreco and reviewed by Rolling Stone.
Been playin live all over Hollywood at Pig ''n Whistle, Universal Bar & Grill, The Rainbow Room, Whisky A Go-Go, Shalom Retirement Center? Tough gig. I broke more than a sweat to get a smile or two out of former concentration camp victims. Presently putting together new material for "Tent City";
a collection of acoustic songs about the social/political landscape and the landscape of my my heart, my body and soul. Yeah, I''m everywhere, doin'' everything. And finally, the new CD in my hands! 15 original songs with great musicians like Noni Novog on viola (Prince''s "Rasberry Beret") & Jimmi Woods on harmonica (Bruce Springsteen''s "Spare Parts".) As I did in "Down In Tompkins Square Park", I put the whole kitchen sink in. Got piano, organ, flugelhorn, trumpet, mandolin, banjo, electric and acoustic guitars and a harmony backing trio out of a gospel choir in Long Beach. I know I''m missing somethin''! Mister Risenshine!: "Kelvis! You''re gonna be bigger than Elvis!"
Well, now, I''d like to share ''em all with you so come on down to the corner and roll with me if you can, if you got it in you to go and get
"Lost In The Cracks Of The Modern World."
