Hello Kelly (NASHVILLE, TN) March 11, 2008—Canadian-based pop/rock band Hello Kelly announced they will release their highly anticipated full-length album on April 15th through 7 Spin Music. The self-titled album, which was produced by Adam Smith, follows the highly successful Green Things Grow EP, which was released in March 2007.

Whether they're blasting through an upbeat riff-rock power tune or moving gently through one of their stirring ballads, Hello Kelly will put a smile on your face and keep it there. From the vibrant and colorful guitar-work, to the tingling synth leads that never get old, these Canadian rockers have constructed a sound that is teeming with fresh melodies, creative arrangements and lyrical confidence.

No strangers to the road, Hello Kelly has been touring throughout Canada and the U.S. for the past three and a half years, sharing the stage with some of the biggest names in Christian music – Superchick, Rebecca St. James, John Reuben, Kids In The Way and Starfield, just to name a few. Over that time the band has played shows from Alberta to Nova Scotia as well as in the U.S.

In addition, the band has seen great radio support with three songs from their previous EP The Modern Day Fades Away, which was released in 2006, reaching #1 at Christian radio in Canada. Hello Kelly has sold over 15,000 combined copies of their two EPs independently as well as through Canadian Christian retail.

Francois Goudreault Jr., Hello Kelly’s lead singer/guitarist and songwriter, says this about Hello Kelly’s goal: "I remember when rock and roll was something that people talked about. I remember my parents filling my ears with Van Halen, The Scorpions, and Triumph - when conversations around the barbeque were about an artist's latest guitar effect, not an artist's latest clothing line. I want people to remember Hello Kelly like that." The band’s name brings about the question of ‘who is Kelly’? Goudreault explains, “Kelly is the reason Hello Kelly is on the road. Kelly is anybody who listens. Kelly is that listener who doesn't know who he or she is. Hello Kelly exists to encourage Kelly to build their dreams. Kelly is that listener who doesn't know what he or she believes. Hello Kelly exists to challenge Kelly to define their own beliefs.”
