Biography

“Simple, honest, unpretentious, easy to listen to over and over…”

These are a few words that many people use when describing the music and voice of Kelly Willard.

Although Kelly has lent her talents to the artistry of such well-known artists as Bob Bennett, Bruce Carroll, Dion DiMucci, Buddy Greene, Keith Green, Steve Green, Fernando Ortega, Twila Paris, Ricky Scaggs, Paul Overstreet, and inumerable Praise and Worship recordings over the years, she remains as simple, approachable and ‘down to earth’ as a person can be.

Born and raised in Winter Haven, Florida, Kelly took to the piano at the tender age of five. Piano lessons were short-lived, as she preferred the unconventional path of playing ‘by ear’. Learning by listening to the radio and recordings, Kelly began to compose her own songs when she was thirteen years old. Accompanying the choir at her church, playing and singing in nursing homes on Sunday afternoons, and traveling with a part time Gospel group on weekends kept her sharing her talents with people.

At the young age of sixteen years, Kelly moved to Nashville, Tennessee, where music became her livelihood. Taking the opportunities afforded her to accompany such groups as The Jake Hess Sound, The Archers, and Seth, she continued to offer her God-given abilities. But, Kelly credits her vocal development to a man from Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, named Harlan Rogers.
