Hello Kelly Release New Album

Published: 2008-03-13
Canadian-based pop/rock band Hello Kelly are releasing their sophomore album entitled Hello Kelly on April 15. The album was produced by Adam Smith and follows the release of the Green Things Grow EP, which was released last year.

Francois Goudreault Jr., Hello Kelly's lead singer/guitarist and songwriter, says this about Hello Kelly's goal: "I remember when rock and roll was something that people talked about. I remember my parents filling my ears with Van Halen, The Scorpions, and Triumph - when conversations around the barbeque were about an artist's latest guitar effect, not an artist's latest clothing line. I want people to remember Hello Kelly like that."

The band's name brings about the question of 'who is Kelly'? Goudreault explains, "Kelly is the reason Hello Kelly is on the road. Kelly is anybody who listens. Kelly is that listener who doesn't know who he or she is. Hello Kelly exists to encourage Kelly to build their dreams. Kelly is that listener who doesn't know what he or she believes. Hello Kelly exists to challenge Kelly to define their own beliefs."

Hello Kelly has been touring through North America for the past three and a half years and has shared the stage with such bands as Superchick, Kids in the Way, Starfield, and John Reuben. The band will be performing at the Kingdom Bound music festival this summer and have these Canadian dates coming up soon:

April 11, St. Catharines, ON Calvary Church
April 12, London, ON West Park Baptist
