“Five Minutes With” Local Musician The Justin Kelly Experiment

Justin Kelly decided to leave his corporate life behind in search of meaning & purpose. He got on a plane with only a backpack & guitar excited to share his unique sound & positive energy with the world. What started as a journey in Iceland quickly grew into playing shows all over Europe.

As a true artist and free spirit, Justin finds inspiration in everyone & everything around him. His unforgettable adventures have been the driving force behind his music and have, in turn, led to the release of his 1st studio album “Wanderlost” in September 2018.

The inspiration & energy from travelling has got Justin quickly back to work on his EP “Grow Me Roots: A Traveler’s Story” – set to release on September 21st 2019.
