Austin Eastciders Collaboratory
979 Springdale Rd Ste. 130, Austin, TX 78702
Sultry smoke and white-hot fire escape the lips of Austin singer/songwriter Kelly Hafner. She explores deep vintage vocal-driven tracks on original unreleased songs like “If It’s Love” and reggae influences in “Give Light.” Songs like “Summergirl” and “Angel” even wind their way into R&B/minimalism. It’s all wrapped in the warm bow of Hafner’s show-stopping voice and unmistakably improvisational style, which promise to keep listeners hooked from start to finish. Echoing the traditions of her soul forebears like Etta James, Lauryn Hill, Marvin Gaye, and Amy Winehouse, Kelly Hafner tests the boundaries of neo-soul in a refreshing way. Kelly will be joined by guitarist Sam Diaz, bassist Shawn Paul Hallman, and drummer Joshua Faust.
