Writer Kelly McCartney remembers listening to Kenny Rogers, the Stylistics, and Rick Springfield as a kid. Nowadays, she’s more likely to be caught with Ashley Monroe, Matthew Perryman Jones, and Ray LaMontagne in her ears, although the Stylistics still hold up nicely. Kelly currently contributes to Shareable, No Depression, the VC Reporter, PopMatters, and Elmore magazine. On the side, she is collaborating with some wonderful musicians on a multi-media theatre series while also developing a couple of music-related video projects. Twitter: @theKELword
