Born in 1974 in Cleveland, Ohio, Jason Kelly began playing guitar seriously at the age of 17, which normally in the world of music is considered a late start. He practiced up to 16 hours a day, until he literally couldn’t feel his fingers anymore, and would then study music theory the rest of the time! By the time he was 19 he began giving lessons.


After surviving a serious car accident around Christmas 2005, in which he and his family were hit by a drunk driver, Jason has approached his music with a new energy, determined not to procrastinate any further; reaffirming that life is unpredictable. Jason is currently working on his first album and the demo versions of the songs can be heard on his MySpace page and ordered from there in the form of a 5 song CD.


He says “ Through outlets such as MySpace and YouTube, I’ve reached an audience I wouldn’t have had access to otherwise. It’s often a surreal feeling, that I can write and record something, and almost instantly have it receive thousands of listens and comments. Through my MySpace page I have received great responses to my songs from well-known musicians and listeners all around the world. I also won 3 honors on YouTube for my song “Face the Music” within 24 hours of posting it!” As a result of the online exposure, Jason has received airplay from various radio stations around the world and has appeared in Guitar Player magazine.

All of these accomplishments have taken place within only 6 months of starting his MySpace page.


Jason’s current focus is instrumental rock music but he is open to working with a vocalist or band. His music has managed to attract a wide audience including listeners who don’t typically listen to instrumentals. This is due to his melodic songwriting style, which sounds like vocal songs that just happen to be played on a guitar.


He is currently writing and recording new material as well as redoing the material from the demos that appear on his MySpace page.


“Kelly has a fabulous sense of melody…” – Michael Molenda, editor-in-chief Guitar Player magazine
“Much better songwriting than most instrumental stuff out there." – Dave Weiner, guitarist – Steve Vai Band

Keep doing what you're doing, people are listening!” - Ty Oliver, guitarist

" I finally found the strings you sent me! I had misplaced them, found them, and used them at last Saturday's gig. They have a very rich tone! How much would they cost me if I bought a full box ?"
