Astra Kelly

Classical and Jazz trained, ASTRA KELLY began her professional singing career after taking note of the city's subway performers, while in route to her job in Chicago. After working on her guitar technique, and with a few pointers from a veteran subway performer, Astra earned 50 dollars in 2 hours and quit her job.

Her subway performances began not only to draw a steady audience, but also a steady request for copies of recorded material. Her first CD, Stones, Bones and Boxes, self-released in December 1996 was recorded in her apartment using professional equipment and engineers who later became friends.

Subtown Rituals implies that there is something happening just beneath what is, or what is seen. The songs, each in themselves, convey an aspect of what exactly that "something" is - movement and change.

Illinois Entertainer:
"Astra Kelly and Far Rockaway build a lot of groove on Subtown Rituals. On Change Happens, Kelly's inviting vocals flow amiably over the guitar hooks.
