KELLY PETTIT's newest release entitled Every Sunrise was recorded in Nashville, Tennessee and produced by Australian music icon Greg Arnold (from the bands 13 at Midnight and Things of Stone and Wood.). After recording his previous album These Days in Australia, Kelly decided to explore the Nashville scene. The outcome is a jackpot of catchy tunes that tell stories of real life. Listeners will find themselves on an emotional roller-coaster ride of happiness and loss in 11 songs/38 minutes. Influenced largely by Australian bands like Crowded House, Things of Stone and Wood, and Paul Kelly, along with North American counterparts The Jayhawks, Barenaked Ladies, and the Counting Crows, Kelly works to define a sound all his own with musicianship and a dedication to each detail of the songwriting process. “My influences are quite diverse and you can really hear that in this CD. What’s constant is my attempt to keep the CD my own and upbeat,” explains Kelly. He was born and raised in Nanaimo, British Columbia but these days he calls Japan home.
