Music has been the sole passion for Kelly Mueller since she was seven-years-old, and when she was signed by international label Universal Records she thought her dreams had come true.

The talented singer/ songwriter, who goes by the stage name of Kell on Urth, has spent time living in Los Angeles and London working on projects with the likes of Ne-Yo, Keri Hilson and The Script but her own album failed to materialise.


After three years with Universal, the 27-year-old, who lives in Darrington, near Pontefract, decided to go it alone and is hoping to release her long-awaiteddebut album ‘Illuminate’ through the
crowd-funding website Kickstarter.

Having recorded the tracks herself and raised almost half of the £2,300 needed to fund its release already, Kelly is hoping the region will support her bid to turn six years of songwriting into an album.

Kelly, who describes her music as emotional pop, told the YEP: “It’s been about six years to do the whole album so it’s just putting it all together and finally releasing it.

“It’s really frustrating but my parents are really supportive and they prefer me living here.

“If they had a preference it would be that I didn’t want to do music as it’s such a cut throat industry but you can’t change what you love.”

After a period living in London, Kelly moved back home to record the album. She has been playing small gigs and writing for other artists to make ends meet.

She has already been given pledges to work on the record by engineer Pete Maher, who has worked on Rolling Stones and U2 records, along with producer Mark Eddinger, who has worked with the likes of DavidBowie and Ray Charles.

Kelly added: “It’s always been music, I used to do tours with different bands and singing in hotels.

“It’s always been a passion for me, I’ve done piano since I was seven-years-old.”

Her use of the Kickstarter website, where people fund entrepreneurial projects in exchange for gifts or rewards, means her piano-centred album must reach its funding target by August 11 to go ahead.

People who pledge can get access to bonuses such as signed copies of the album and personalised videos.

Visit www.kickstarter.com/projects/kellonurth/be-a-part-of-kell-on-urths-debut-album to pledge from £1 to £500.
