Primary Instrument: Composer/conductor

Born: July 3, 1978    

A lover of stories and a slave to her overactive imagination, New York City based composer Kelly Fenton uses her music to do just that, tell a story. Deriving inspiration from comic books, myths, and real life stories, Kelly’s programmatic music is enriched with symbolism and honesty, and open to interpretation. While it’s the stories and people she meets that give her the motivation to compose, she strives for her music to be accessible to all listeners, regardless of whether or not they hear the story she deemed to portray.

Born in 1978 on a military base in Okinawa, Japan, Kelly grew up with her three siblings, mother, and Marine Corps Officer father, on and around numerous military bases across the United States. Attending eleven schools before graduating high school in the high desert of California, Kelly was exposed to a diverse range of people and music that continue to influence her music today....

”Listening to Kelly's music is like downing that first shot of espresso in the morning -- first, a burst of rich, concentrated flavors... then the caffeine kicks in. She has epic ambitions and a vivid, four-color imagination, tempered by a delight in the sensual pleasures of small-scale gestures.”

-Darcy James Argue, composer

“Kelly Fenton isn't just a remarkable composer and arranger, although her gifts in those area are plentiful and deep. She's also a STORYTELLER. Her music moves and transports and enthralls and surprises. I'm count myself as a serious fan of hers, and after you hear her work, I'm guessing that you will, as well.”

-Gail Simone, author DC Comics
