about

Kelly Jones Los Angeles, California

Kelly Jones was raised on a horse farm in Ridgefield, WA. But her voice has carried her far and wide: Brooklyn, Manhattan’s East Village, Nashville and now Los Angeles. It’s a journey reflected in her vocal style: a mélange of west coast sunshine and east coast grit, held together with an effortlessly sweet confidence. Hers is a rare gift — a voice you can listen to all day and still want more. ... more

Track Name: Right Hand Man
I went looking for an answer at a fast-paced carnival
I walked into the hall of mirrors
Didn't see myself at all
All the comics and the junkies
Tried to woo me into something new
I listened then I ran
Lord, take me to your Right Hand Man

Couldn't find him on the blacktop so I headed to the beach to wait
No angel on a wave came rushing
No message in the Milky Way
Only pirates round the fire
Trying to steal my words away from me
I left 'em in the sand
Lord, take me to your Right Hand Man

I've been wandering the wilderness
Covered in cosmic dust
Oh I can't keep going on like this
Oh Lord it don't take much
All I need is just one touch

I thought a lot about the answer in a taxi to the hills
Maybe he's alive in New York City
Waiting for me by a window sill
All that thinking got me tired
So I laid my head down to pray
Lord, help me when you can
I'm sure you understand
Let's figure out a plan
Take me to you Right Hand Man
Track Name: Limbo
Sweep the dirt and leave
The sink spotless
Call a good friend as you go
Make the bed and say
A prayer for progress
Visualize you're flying high
While you're laying low in

Limbo
Waving at days gone by
Dreams floating out the window
Leaving no hope behind
Lean back and watch

Concentrate and make a list
For good measure
Get the groceries like you do
Carry on
You know it's not forever
Time's gonna wash away this
Melting mood in

Limbo
Waving at days gone by
Dreams floating out the window
Leaving no hope behind
Lean back and watch the wind blow

Blowin' it all away
I know...
Something's gonna blow my way one day

In Limbo
Waving at days gone by
Dreams rolling out the window
Leaving no hope behind
Lean back and watch the wind blow
Track Name: Idyllwild
They can't get to me now
I won't hear 'em  callin'
I heard a softer sound
Now I'm rolling with the brush
They can't usher me in
I'm too high for pinnin' down

There's no need to be brave
I'm alright with running
No one needs to behave 
When they're waving in the wind
Miles of a endless sky
Hanging over a desert highway

Idyllwild
I hear whistles on the water and a whisper in the pine
Idyllwild

XXXX
I don't feel much like crying
Those are the goodbye days 
I'm leaving in the dust
Weeds on a busted road
Grow and tumble miles away from where I'm gonna go… okay

Idyllwild
I hear whistles on the water and a whisper in the pine
Idyllwild

Sing my song
Yeah, the one where I'm lost
Then I'm found here in the silence of the dawn

Free my heart
So our love becomes one
And let my soul slip away into the setting sun

Idyllwild
Idyllwild
Idyllwild
Track Name: Love Dynamo
I wanna do what the Good Book says
Try that Golden Rule
I wanna do what the Good Lord did
Trade the mighty for the weak
Be a child before a fool

There he goes to the canyon in the sky
Shining gold, on the road to Paradise
He is my survivor
I'm his willing bride
Waiting Oh…
For my Love Dynamo

I wanna follow where he walks
We've gone many miles
I keep up and I take off
On the rocky road below
We get lost once in awhile

When I go there's a long and lonesome sigh
Swing down low, sweet angel to my side
I am with the sparrow
Flying in the night
Searching Oh…
For my Love Dynamo

I laid down with the Holy Ghost
We met in my dream
Rolling a river in the flow
On a mountain in the sun
Catching waves of evergreen

There we go to the canyon in the sky
Shining gold on the road to paradise
I am a survivor
He's my willing guide
Going home
To my Love Dynamo
I want my Love… Dynamo
Track Name: Funny Old Way
Please do what you're told
You're so much younger, boy, I feel so old
Why would you want my heart?
I know some pretty young things who need a start

I don't believe a word you say...
But if you love me, you can love me in my
Funny old way

Please don't move so fast
I'm not a sucker boy, those days have passed
You gotta move in slow
I need a steady hand… Just so you know

I'm not another game to play…
But if you love me, you can love me in my
Funny old way

I got conditions, some inhibitions stressing me out
You outta know that now
I like persistence, but I insist you take it down a notch
Let me watch

SOLO

Please... shoot me straight
My clock is tickin' boy, it just can't wait
I know I turned you down
But I'm feeling funny boy, get up and turn around

I'm hanging on the things you say…
So love me, if you love me in my funny old way

I know another game to play…
I'll love you and you love me in my funny old way

An Ooo, I'm gonna love you, boy….
Track Name: Old House
We got crowbars and big sledgehammers
For taking down the doors, ceilings and the floors
And shovels with strong wheelbarrows
We're fixing up the Old House

We look ragged, saw-tooth jagged
Our clothes are outta style, we haven't worn them in a while
But no one's starin', we don't care about what we're wearing'
Just fixing up the Old House

So one by one we pull the nails out of the walls
Two by two we pull the trash outside from the rooms, from the halls
All for our sister and our brother
Gonna work real hard in the rain or under cover
And if we're lucky we just might get to know each other

Oooo while we're fixing up the Old House
Oooooo while we're fixing up the house….

There's trouble we gotta get to on the double
This floor is like a sea wave, take a miracle just to save it
But we're gonna give it all we can give it
'Cause we wanna fix this Old House

So one by one we pull the boards up from the floor
Two by two we push the trash aside so we can see a little more
All for our sister and our brother
Gonna work real hard in the rain or under cover
And if we're lucky we just might learn to love each other

Oooo while we're fixing up the Old House
Oooo while we're fixing up the Old House
Track Name: My American Blues
I tune in to a 
Cowboy song
While the cars rush in from the valley

Friday night, yeah the
Scene's alright
But the kids are starting to get me down

Devil's on a dare now
When the night falls, he tip-toes around
Trying to pay his dues
Oh, My American Blues

Some new drug's laced in
Who knows what
So the cars race up Lookout Mountain

Cannon balls land in
Swimming pools
Now the kids have finally made their splash

Devil's on a dare now
When the night falls, he tip-toes around
It's Entertainment News
Oh, My American Blues

Angels wait on the hill
Angels wait on the hill
Angels wait on the hill

I see stars dancing
Two by two
When they twirl, I hear the system clapping

I tune in to that
Cowboy song
Missing words and trying to play along

Devil's on a dare now
When the night falls, he tip-toes around
He's got nothing to lose
Oh, My American Blues
Track Name: Heart - Soul - Mind
Heart Soul Mind
Living in Communion
Channeling the rising sun

Close your eyes
See yourself in color
In a spectrum of a light divine

Every worldly fashion
On the streets and on the hill
Fades away
Clear the air and work your will
Open up your

Heart Soul Mind
All your friends are watching you
To see what it is you'll do

Every vain ambition
On the streets and on the hill
Wastes away
So come in close

Drink the loving cup
It's sweet and washes down
The thickness of your stuff
In the way
Soon enough you'll start to feel your

Heart Soul Mind
Doo doo doo doo (living in communion)
(see yourself in color)

Every passing pleasure
On the streets and on the hill
Goes away
Do your best
Track Name: Unanswered Questions
Unanswered questions
Keeping me company
Like my old friends they love making fun of me
I'm such a gullible girl
I get 'em all laughing each time I try answering
Every last "Who" wondering "Why"
Why?

When there's a question
I do due diligence
Where lies the fault, where lies the innocence?
I'm such a sensitive girl
I take it to heart when the facts fall apart on me
What I thought true, only a lie

I remember younger days
I saw my reflection in simpler ways
Clear as a picture hung high on the wall
I knew it all
I thought I knew it all…. Now

Me and my questions
Doing our exercise
Playing charades and reading the classifies
I'm such a disciplined girl
I follow the rules 'til the signs make a fool of me
What can I do? Don't ask me why
Why…… Why….. me?
