Adelaide Soul Musician Kelly Brouhaha Announces 'As Long As There's A Smile' Single Rele
Award winning Adelaide roots warrior Kelly Brouhaha, today announced her new single ‘As Long As There’s A Smile’ set for release on June 23rd. To celebrate Kelly will be taking the new single on the road throughout June and July.
It’s been almost 3 years since her last release, having left her mortgage and marriage in an effort to find happiness and pursue her love for music. It’s taken Kelly some time to find her way through the depths of divorce, debt and depression and ‘As Long As There’s A Smile’ has been part of this journey.
‘As Long As There’s A Smile’ is about choosing optimism in times of depression and suffering and finding positivity in situations that otherwise could lead your emotions down a dark road of despair. Simply put, optimism is your friend.
‘As Long As There’s A Smile’ is a bright and bubbly summer time anthem seeping with happiness and positivity. Kelly’s soulful charms and harmonies lead the song accompanied by a stripped back instrumental grassroots sound with a warm and deep bass line, minimalistic rhythmic drumming and a colourful melodic acoustic guitar.
Kelly recorded ‘As Long As There’s A Smile’ with producer Marty Brown in the same location that Clare Bowditch recorded the album that changed Kelly’s life, The Winter I Chose Happiness.
“That album for me was a real turning point in my career, the messages on that record to follow your heart encouraged me to quit my day job, I was on my very first solo tour in 2012 when I first heard it and totally freaking out. After hearing that I came home and quit my job,” Kelly explains.
“To be able to record it in the same place that album was made was something really special and I think we really captured the vibe of the lyrics this time around.”
Kelly will be setting off on an intimate solo acoustic tour as she takes her feel-good soul music throughout South Australia, New South Wales and Victoria, with the occasional guest joining her on stage.
