Here’s My Brief ‘Brush With Fame’
Well…Once upon a time, there was a girl named Kelly, who wanted to be a professional vocalist. I had my opportunity to tour the United States and Canada back in the early nineties. I started playing with a band in Bemidji called “Chill Factor”. An audio Engineer named Gary Burger introduced me to the bass player Keith Thunem, and Keith gave me a chance. We recorded an album entitled, “Lazy Ambition” in which I had two original songs.
That lead to an audition with a phenomenal band based out of Eau Claire Wisconsin called the Bear Creek Band. The Bear Creek Band toured all over the country, and when I had the chance to audition, I took it! I got the job and began touring. Pictured is one of my favorite groups of all time, “Diamond Rio”. I had a chance to open up the show. That was exciting. This was a part of my second tour with Bear Creek, and there are so many stories to tell, but this was one of my favorite performances. You can see I’m quite happy, young and hopeful.
