First Listen: Kelly Renee makes us "Linger" on new song

(March 17, 2018) If 2017 brought us something consistently, it was a stream of new vocalists who are blending soulful vocals with sweet, jazzy grooves. And that is continuing here in 2018, most recently with singer and songwriter Kelly Renee.

Kelly made a name for herself singing in the New York area in a number of shows and with several bands. She connected with producer Chuck Slay, and the two clicked musically. The result of their collaboration is an upcoming EP.

The first fruit of their labor, though, is the cool single, “You Linger,” which combines all the elements referred to above, to create the kind of adult soul sound that we think SoulTrackers will dig. Kelly tells us about the song, “I heard Chuck's music and instantly connected. I started thinking about those aching and intimate thoughts we have about that new sweetie in our lives, and I wanted to express that.”
