Country Music Artist Records First Single Off his New Album
(Largo, FL) – Country Music Recording Artist CP Kelley is about to enter the recording studio to work on his first original CD. The first song on the album will be “Wings”; a song that CP Kelley is very passionate about.
Recently CP Kelley decided to take his love of singing and performing to a whole new level. He recorded a demo album of some of his favorite cover songs; the album is not for sale. That album received some amazing feedback, and his fans requested more. To answer the call, CP Kelley will go into the studio to record his first original album.

Wings was written by Jason Dowd and arranged by Chris Kotterba. The song was written shortly after Dowd lost his best friend to suicide in 2006. His frustration for the incident led Dowd to write the song which asks his friend why he did what he did when he had so many wonderful things to live for here on earth.
The song is a powerful song, one that captures raw emotion from its listeners while glorifying a life lost with great memories throughout a 15 year friendship.
“I couldn’t think of a better person to sing this song. CP Kelley is not only a talented individual who will do the song justice, but he’s a dear friend of mine. I am honored he’s performing the song and I am honored its part of his first original album. He’s an amazing talent and I can’t wait to watch him grow wings and soar throughout the music industry” says Dowd.
“I can’t wait to get back into the studio and produce songs for my first album. It’s fitting I am doing a song called Wings because it’s a beautiful and emotional song this album will help me soar to my goals and dreams in the music industry, and help me touch lives with my music” says CP Kelley.
“Wings” will be recorded at “Soundsmith Studios” in Tampa, FL.
Right now there is no immediate date set for the completion of the album as CP Kelley continues to collaborate with writers and composers to compile his new full length LP. The release of “Wings” is set for early fall of 2012. He is looking for talented writers and composers to collaborate with him in this project.

About CP Kelley
Colin Patrick Kelley, better known as CP Kelley, was born in Texarkana, AR in 1967. Ever since he could remember, Kelley played an instrument. Kelley found out early in life that he held a gift most musicians would love to have. That gift is the ability to listen to a song and play it by ear on the instrument they’re playing. For the most part, Kelley is a self taught musician and singer. He’s never been to any formal vocal coach for training and he taught himself how to play the piano.
Throughout school and his adult life Kelley’s played the Piano, Alto Sax, Oboe, Xylophone, Chimes and the Electric Keyboard. In high school Kelley was an electric keyboard player in Four States Honor Jazz Band. Music runs through his veins; it’s what allows him to express himself to the world and entertain the people around him.
Since he loves entertaining and music he decided in 2011 to combine the two talents together and tackle the professional music industry as a recording artist. He has many singers and songwriters that have inspired him and his music that span a variety of genres from Frank Sinatra to Garth Brooks. However country music is his genre of choice as it allows him to exploit his vocal range that is not only appealing for the listeners but entertaining. Country music is the spirit of America, it’s full of deep emotions and stories of the lives of true blooded Americans; and that is what Kelley is.
