There was a magical time in music where one could turn on their favourite FM radio station and be rewarded for their efforts with a stream of truly classic rock n' roll. the sounds of T-Rex melding into Thin Lizzy, or the Alice Cooper Group played back to back against a Cheap Trick album track. The 70's era of rock n' roll was a time when the purchase of an album was a sacred rite of passage, the attending of a concert the equivalent of a mass religious experience, and the image and art of the rock n' roll performer married as one.

Crash Kelly wants to take you back.......ladies and gentlemen, please adjust your Hi-Fi players for the next rock n' roll transmission.

Crash Kelly is the soulchild of Sean Kelly, a young Toronto session musician who has toured and recorded with some of the biggest names in Canadian music. After years of playing sideman to sundry artists, the Rock N' Roll animal in Sean could no longer be contained. In 2002, Crash Kelly was born.

Crash Kelly comes by its influences honestly. Weaned on the classic music of Aerosmith, The Rolling Stones, KISS, T-Rex and others through his older sister's record collection, Sean quickly fell under the spell of the sound of twin guitars, slamming glam-rock beats and performance based rock n' roll.

Being a child of the 80's, Sean was able to separate the wheat from the chaff of the hard rock artists of the famed Sunset Strip. Early Motley Crue and Hanoi Rocks are considered essential listening in the Kelly household, and the combination of those influences filtered through the strong sway of the aforementioned 70's influence form the foundation for Crash Kelly.

Crash Kelly's debut album, "Penny Pills" was co-produced by Sean and "Killer" Ky Anto, of Robin Black and The Intergalactic Rockstars fame. Ky's production expertise and shared love of classic production resulted in an album that honestly represents the spirit of hook filled, swaggering rock n' roll. How fortunate that it also happens to sound fresh and new, when held up against certain proponents of nu-rock.

Crash Kelly is augmented in live performance by some of the best musicians Canada has to offer. At any given time you can see members of such bands as Robin Black and the IRS, Moist, Lowest of the Low, and Melvin supporting the Crash Kelly agenda.

Rest assured, that the Crash Kelly onslaught will be global in nature. This is an act that thrives in the live arena. They're coming to your town, they'll help ya party it get my drift? Cool.
