Kelly Steward is a Midwestern American singer, songwriter and recording artist hailing from Rockford, IL. Her haunting indie flavored neo-traditional country meditations are a favorite in this area of the country, a grass-roots musical movement from the state that brought you Wilco. After a few storied years in Los Angeles, Kelly moved back to the Midwest to record her EP “Long Long Road” with producer and fellow musician Miles Nielsen. Traveling and playing with Miles’ band for a couple years, Kelly broke off to form her own band The Restless Kind with Greg Whitson (guitar), Andy Scarpaci (bass), Jim Westin (keys) and Jesse Carmona (drums). In 2012 she released an intimate EP titled “Out From Within” . 2019 marks her full length album debut “Tales and Tributes of the Deserving and Not So” produced by Kelly and her fellow band-mate Greg Whitson. The vibe of the album is reminiscent of mid 70’s female singer-songwriters like Emmylou Harris, Joan Baez and Linda Ronstadt with a Laurel Canyon via Midwest Americana feel. You can purchase the album now via this website or most digital music platforms.
