When it comes to setting themselves apart, no artists have it harder than Folk acoustic singer songwriters.
Yet, with the ability to conjure imagery with acoustic strings, potently celestial vocals and lyrical depth you could drown in, it’s not impossible, and that’s just what Mia Kelly proved with her latest Indie Folk Blues single “Cardboard Box”.
Whilst many Folk artists go down the airy and breathy vocal styles, Mia Kelly goes in the opposite direction with her dynamic vocal talent, which for the most part runs through with a muted harmony. But even the high notes don’t seem like they’re a stretch as she meets them with piercing pitch-perfect ease.
After creating such a stunning track such as Cardboard Box which is the title track from her latest EP at the age of just 16, I wouldn’t say it’s long before Mia Kelly’s underground status is far behind her.
You can check out the latest single Cardboard Box which was released on February 20th, 2019 by Mia Kelley for yourselves by heading over to SoundCloud now.
