Nestled in the heart of Music City (Nashville, TN), enigmatic husband & wife duo NEELY emerge with a grit and energy that integrates the region's eclectic musical soundscape into an array of well-crafted Rock anthems featuring spine chilling harmonies and hook-laden lyrics. Backed by a tight, hard-hitting lineup of dynamic, high-powered musicians, NEELY is a modern rock force to be reckoned with.
The vast musical influences of Jeremy and Kaci came to fruition on their 2008 digital EP, The Zod Archives, released October 21st, 2008. Produced by Zodlounge (Tom Michael, Todd Shay, and Brett Vargason), The Zod Archives encompasses the gritty music of Nickleback, the high-energy vocals of Daughtry, and the potent lyrical wizardry of Lifehouse to create a energetic yet soul-searching offering of Rock songs that has set the stage for their much anticipated 2009 debut album, Everything I AM followed by their acoustic album Colorblind in 2011.
In 2013, NEELY switched gears to show some of their down home roots, NEELY teamed up with producer Jon King to turn a classic catch phrase into a modern southern rock anthem called Kiss My Grits. A constant crowd favorite wherever they go, Kiss My Grits has help NEELY show the world they will make excellent music without the confines of Record Label generated genres.
The roots of what is now NEELY began decades ago in the small towns of Cosby, MO and Bennington, KS where both Jeremy and Kaci would record hours of radio broadcasts on cassette tape and pour over the content, honing writing and vocal skills that seeming providence would set on a collision course. The two were married May 5th, 1996, yet it wasn't until the summer of 2000 that they began to explore the extraordinary musical harmony that was fused together. Constantly pursuing excellence in their craft and traveling under other banners, Jeremy and Kaci began to exhibit a quality in their music that began to turn heads in the Central United States.
With a simple yet heartfelt approach to scripting songs Jeremy and Kaci have compiled a set of songs that span an array of emotion. From the anthemic "Everything I Am" to driving guitars and vocals on "In The Middle" to the heartfelt cry of affection that pours out of "You And Me" the relentless onslaught of catchy melodies and well crafted lyrics have captivated listeners all over the world. NEELY has spent decades crafting and honing their skills to pour into the making of Everything I Am, Colorblind, and Kiss My Grits and that same skill, experience, and energy is on display in their live performances.
