Fairbanks, Alaska spawned Blues-Rock Powerhouse, Kelly Moneymaker. Kelly says, “Cold, long winters provided the perfect environment for creativity. As kids, we’d stay inside to listen to our favorite albums, practice endlessly, write songs/stories & we’d jam with all our friends.” Since she went pro at thirteen, she’s been busy building a diverse body of work–from her stint with platinum-selling trio, Exposé, to writing love songs for Days of Our Lives to Silvermoney’s hard-hitting, “Goddess Killer” to the blues-based rock "Race Against The Sky." One of her dreams is to host an “Indie Igloo Music Fest” in AK where people build igloos for shelter while experiencing great music, healthy food, micro-brew & wildlife against backdrop of breath-taking scenery. Kelly will release a new blues/rock cd called “Stone” Oct. 1st, 2014

REACTIONS & REVIEWS
It’s a rare artist that comes along who was truly born to sing. Fairbanks, Alaska native Kelly Moneymaker is one of those rare individuals. Gifted with a voice that is simply stunning and surrounded by a recording band that’s as strong as any out there, Moneymaker makes full use of each and every element on Race Against the Sky, crafting one of the tightest blues rock records heard in a long, long time. Don’t walk, but run to your nearest record store and grab this record now. You won’t be sorry… -- Andrew Greenhalgh, Liverpool Post UK Album Review (4.5 out of 5 stars)
