I got to see Kimly perform once, and I was so excited about her performance, that I bought her CD.
She was very cute, very energetic. My favorite song was “Good Evening”. This is the only video I can find of her performing, but when I saw her perform, she was way more energetic, jumping around the stage and making jokes. I got to talk to her afterwards and she was a sweetheart.
I hesitated posting her on this blog, only because she doesn’t have high quality recordings. The EP that I bought wasn’t unfortunately a great recording. I thought she was much better live, more energetic and louder. I felt the recording lacked back-up vocals and the right instrumentation. Kimly definitely has a different energy and potential, she needs the backing of a good manager or record label to push her into the right place. I hope she continues singing, because I liked her a lot, she just needs the right recordings and professional help to send her into the limelight.

To make things easier on this blog to navigate through, I will be adding new pages to help you sift through the content on the blog.
First up, is a list of all the indie artists I have mentioned throughout this whole blog, so if you don’t feel like rummaging through all my blogs, or don’t want to check out the “Indie Artists” tag, this page will list all the indie artists, a short description of the artist and a direct link to the blog they were mentioned in.
I also want to do a Genre page, to find music genres easier on this blog. Let me know if you have any ideas of your own to help your experience of finding good music on this blog!
Since it’s kind of hard for me to pin down a day to talk about indie artists, I’m going to change the title of these posts from “Indie Artist Mondays” to “Indie Artist to Check Out:”
I found Kelsey on Myspace two years ago. I thought her song, “Facebook Admirer” was an instant hit. She’s still working on music, and I hope things get better for her, her lyrics are cute and right to the point. Skaggs is 19 years old and from Ohio.
Check out a Youtube of her performing live below and check out her website here: http://www.kelseyskaggs.com/
