Kelly Zullo has been a tireless musical troubadour of nearly 25 years. Riding high crests and valleys through her career, she is no stranger to having to flex and bend to accommodate what talents are needed to pave the way for the current project. A singer, songwriter, guitarist, bassist, drummer, audio engineer, producer, entrepreneur, business owner, carpenter… tireless traveler and adventurer, her art reflects with bare honesty her travels and emotions. Traveling easily a half a million miles around the United States in her 20 years of performing, many know her as a “van dweller” or road gypsy. Others know her as a drummer as she performed with a few well known folk acts. Some know her as a songwriter and music producer, as she produced and engineered nearly a dozen albums during her time in Nashville, TN.

Wherever she goes, she seems to make an art of it. Most recently that place has been Columbus OH, where she has been mostly seen performing at festivals and clubs as her act “Kelly Zullo & The Invisible Circus”, a one woman band where she plays drum loops, complex funky guitar lines and bass with her feet while singing philosophical funk jams. A unique act which drew much attention in its first incarnation, she has recently re-envisioned herself with a new act “Kelly Zullo & The Indivisible Circus”, a folk-alt country band project featuring the songs she left unfinished from a whirlwind career in Nashville many years ago. Featuring top ten hitmaker Rich Redmond on drums (Jason Aldean, Kelly Clarkson, Jewel and many others), and the late and wonderful Jackie Street on bass (Natalie Umbruglia, Amy Grant, Jars Of Clay), the project began with grammy winning recording engineer John Jasczc back in 1999 and thrust into a closet by Kelly, to be returned to 20 years later after a colorful life of lessons, ups and downs, and life experiences. That project called “The Twenty Year Album” will be available coming spring 2019. You can follow her narrative on how this album is being made by finding her on www.patreon.com/kellyzullo.
