Award winning Adelaide roots warrior Kelly Brouhaha, today announced her new EP Mama Didn’t Raise A Quitter set for release on September 1. To coincide with this, Kelly will be getting back in the van for a 27-stop spin around Australia.
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. Mama Didn’t Raise A Quitter is Kelly’s story of recovery and starting over.
With a positive, bright and summertime folk sound Mama Didn’t Raise A Quitter reflects Kelly’s emotions as she partners with optimism and enthusiasm to avoid the dark road of despair. Seeping with happiness, Kelly’s soulful charms and harmonies lead the way, accompanied by grassroots instrumentals with hints of country and blues.
Kelly recorded Mama Didn’t Raise A Quitter with producer Marty Brown in the same studio 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.”
The first two singles from Mama Didn’t Raise A Quitter, ‘Audrey’s Song’ and ‘As Long As There’s A Smile’ were released earlier this year, each finding success with ‘Audrey’s Song’ being added to rotation on ABC Local and ‘As Long As There’s A Smile’ reaching #2 in the AMRAP regional charts.
After a successful run of dates around Australia already this year, Kelly will once again be hopping in the van dubbed ‘Pamela Vanderson’ and living the road-worn adventure. With a passion for the tiny house movement, Kelly is challenging herself to live more minimally and to consume less, forcing herself into living in the moment. While on tour, Kelly plans to wake up next to the beaches on the coast, enjoying the sun from the comfort and warmth of her doona, exploring regional Australia and taking inspiration for her next chapter along the way.
