I have an exciting opportunity that came my way this week and I just had to share it! Thanks to Indianapolis Bloggers, I get to interview singer/songwriter Kelley James tomorrow before he performs at the Red Bull Moto GP After Party in Indianapolis!
The interview even got a little blurb on his website – http://kelleyjames.com/2012/08/indianapolis-bloggers-to-interview-kelley-at-red-bull-event/
This is sort of thing is right up my alley. I was a radio intern in college and I had the chance to interview several country artists. It’s always fun to meet the person behind the music. I am very excited to interview Kelley and I will be sharing the interview with you right here on my blog!
In case you haven’t heard of Kelley, here’s a little background info about him:
National recording artist Kelley James is a singer-songwriter whose music is a fascinating collection of acoustic guitars, hip-hop beats, thoughtful lyrics and freestyle flows. He has shared the stage with the likes of the Goo Goo Dolls, Kate Voegele, Slightly Stoopid, Shwayze, T-Pain, Will.i.am, and more.
Kelley recently played a weeklong residency at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas in June and just finished headlining the Common Threads Tour for Patagonia in Australia, which makes his fifth tour of Australia to date. Additionally, he has toured the nation with acts such as Mike Posner and O.A.R., and has performed over 600 shows in the past four years.
His newly released single, “Summertime On My Mind”, has become a summertime anthem and has received recognition from several viral entertainment sites including BroBible, BuzzFeed, ClevverMusic, Mashable and Tone It Up. “Summertime On My Mind” has been included on Tunecore’s “25 Songs of Summer” compilation album available free on Amazon MP3. The music video features special guest appearances by some of Kelley’s friends including Ryan Braun of the Milwaukee Brewers, Richard Jefferson of the Golden State Warriors, Tone It Up fitness and nutritional experts Katrina and Karena and professional beach volleyball player Chelsea Rashoff.
Also, I want you to be a part of my interview! What do you want to know about Kelley? Send me your questions and I will ask him during my interview!
I’ll be posting throughout the event on Twitter so be on the lookout for my interview with Kelley!
Wish me luck!
