Kelly Newton is an emerging singer, songwriter and guitarist from Louisville, Kentucky. She made her professional solo recording debut in 2017 with the album “Lady Liberty.” That record introduced a talented artist writing deeply personal songs that examine the perils of surviving the human condition. She has a vibrant Indie-Folk sound, colored with shades of Rock, Pop and Americana.
“A Ghost Remains” is the brand new album from Kelly Newton, released world wide via all major streaming services on May 13, 2022. The 7 song collection finds Kelly alone with her songs and guitar. The beautifully recorded solo acoustic record is an intimate 15 minute set of songs about life, love and transitions.
From the shades of gray and graveyard metaphors of “Zombie Song” to the excited and anxious energy of “Maybe,’ ‘ with just six strings and some clever twists of phrase Kelly Newton paints vivid and infinitely relatable scenes. She delivers touching and earnest love songs with immediately memorable melodies on tracks like “Because of You” and “A Castle Colassal.”
“Million Miles’ ‘ is a real highpoint. Kelly peppers the short escape fantasy with an infectious Country/Pop hook. Similarly, on the title track “A Ghost Remains” the singer lends her Indie-Folk vibe to a wistful and melancholy Pop torch song and spices it up with some nice bluesy transitions. Throughout the album Newton weaves different musical styles into her unique brand of Folk.
