Glancy Kelly turned to music at an early age as a salve for his various difficult experiences. As soon as he learned how to write he began creating songs about things he was going through as a kid. From playing drums to learning multiple instruments – Glancy developed a deep passion for the art of music making. Today, he is ready to showcase his body of work to the world with the release of his album “Now or Never.” It’s an album that explores a variety of musical styles from hip-hop, R&B, soul and pop.
“It kind of represents all parts of me,” Kelly says, “I’ve been working on it for the last two years and I’m ready to see how far I can go with it. I had a couple of major artists wanting to buy a couple of my songs like ‘Hold On To Me’ and ‘My Life’ but I wanted to keep them for myself.”
He has had modest success over the years including a short stint in the early rounds of the FOX reality show 'American Idol'.
“While I consistently received praise from the producers, I never moved past the non-televised portion of the contest,” he said, “It was a wake-up call for me. I have these ideas and content that break the convention mold of ‘filler’ lyrics, and I realized that I was going to have to make my own dreams come true. That’s why I put out ‘Hold On To Me’.... The positive response has been overwhelming. My followers on Soundcloud just exploded and some of the heavy-hitters in the music industry began to take notice.”
Ready to take that positive momentum and use it to promote his new project, “Now or Never.”, Glancy Kelly hopes to connects with people on a personal level.
Kelly ends with mentioning, “Not only did I learn a lot of instruments as a kid, but I also taught myself how to sing,” he said. “I’ve been singing now since I was 17 or 18. A lot of people have vocal coaches, but I didn’t have that and I taught myself to sing."
“Now or Never” is available for purchase on iTunes, Spotify and other digital media sites.
