By: Ton-Up, Inc.
"Savior" showcases Kelly's signature vocal style and captures his ability to draw the listener into the song. Performed and recorded live at New York's Triad Theater for the elevated staged reading of "Rockquiem For A Wrestler, in June of 2020, Kelly brings a blistering intensity and menace, capturing the theatrical spontaneity that is the signature of Rock-n-Roll and the Wrestling world.
The band features Guitarist Benjamin J Samuelson, Drummer Peter Lazorcik, Bass Player Seth Lisle, and a special appearance by Eddie Star (Eddie Star & The Zero Effect, JoyBox) on Rhythm Guitar. Originally written, recorded, and performed by Star, the song is one of several titles licensed from the musician's catalog included in the show.
The story of a champion wrestler revisiting his past, transporting the audience simultaneously between the world of professional wrestling and being at a rock concert, featuring the music of Eddie Star and composer Paul Castrataro (Picture of Dorian Gray, Fags & Cellphones) captured the imagination of the viewing audience during the live stream in June of 2020.
A music video for "Savior" will soon be released, and the live cast recording will be available on digital music services later this year. Kelly is currently developing "Rockquiem For A Wrestler" for the screen.
