Kelly Lynn Corsino was born in Anaheim, California. Her father, Richard Corsino, was an aerospace engineer who found his way to music through the folk movement of the 60’s, while her mother, Ginger, was leading a folk group and looking for a guitarist.
Her parents went on to form a band called Good Company. Kelly began singing with the band when she was seven. The music covered a broad range of styles from Glenn Miller to the current hits, which proved to be a major influence on her as an artist in later years.
Kelly became a full-time musician at the age of ten, singing at events and nightclubs. At sixteen, she took over the role as leader of the band when her parents retired from stage, and she led many of the most sought-after studio musicians in LA who were often more than twice her age.
Making her living singing cover material and being a session singer, she finally took the plunge and ventured into original territory with an experimental rock band called Pangaea. Kelly got the writing bug at that point and formed an original country music band under the name Kelly Lynn Holiday and The Open Road. The act featured original music that was heavily influenced by classic rock, and her stage persona was edgy and included bombastic dance choreography. The band was featured at high profile venues throughout LA and won two LA Music Awards: one for Best Female Vocalist and one for Best CD.
In 2005, her song, “Tonight” was snatched up by American Idol for their first ever songwriting competition where tens of thousands of people heard her music and her voice.
In 2011, she released “Within”. The productions fused Old School R&B, Gospel, World Music and Pop, and the disc received several Posi Awards nominations.
For several years, Kelly toured the nation and her currently released EP, The Key Of Humanity is being submitted for Grammy consideration.
