Pop artist and song writer Kev Kelly has released his new single 'Royal Blue' which is accompanied with a lyric video which was done by the creative agency Burn & Broad, they recently did the branding for Gov Ball.


Unapologetic, raw, and witty, Kev Kelly delivers undeniably catchy tracks with massive commercial appeal. 'Royal Blue' is the second single from Kev Kelly's forthcoming two part EP, 'THIS MIGHT ESCALATE… AND THEN COLLAPSE'.

“There was a bar in Nashville called crazy town. It was the worst best bar on Broadway, I hate going downtown but if you had people in town or it was your friends birthday, you went to crazy town. There was a DJ that was there every weekend DJ Donnie d, I think? Shouts out. When Donnie d played a song everyone knew, the whole place would erupt. These girls in cowboy hats and boots they bought from f**kin boot barn would go apes**t. I’m talking drinks thrown into their bridesmaids faces because this dude played replay by Iyaz. No regard for humanity if Donnie D played something you danced to in a grind circle at a Catholic middle school dance. You’re not leaving room for Jesus when He hit shuffle on that playlist. I would like to think if Royal Blue came on at Crazy Town in 2018 the whole place would go f***in nuts. Miss you DJ Donnie D.”

Kev Kelly is a Nashville-based pop artist and songwriter who accelerated onto the scene in 2020 with the release of his debut EP 'Saint KDK V'. Listeners instantly resonated not just with Kelly’s one-of-a-kind sound, but also with his refreshing vulnerability. Kelly takes his most personal experiences and expertly molds them into songs that are as fresh as they are memorable.

With musical influences that range from Frank Ocean and Hozier to Otis Redding and Sam Cooke, Kelly began discovering his musical aspirations at the age of four, when he first sat down at a piano. In 2020, Kelly’s single 'Everything’s on Fire' was chosen as an American Songwriter Daily Discovery and reached #3 on the Commercial Pop UK Club chart.

With the anticipation surrounding his new EP and the release of his latest set of singles - it’s clear that Kelly isn’t taking his foot off the gas when it comes to making music.
