Kelly Reed (formerly i.e. kokoro) draws from years of classical training and orchestral performance to inform her music, and has been writing and performing as a multi-instrumentalist in bands since 2012. With thoughtful lyrics and compositions, she crafts sonic landscapes that explore universal experiences of what it means to be human. Self-describing her music as “genre-unconcerned,” Kelly’s unique style has been likened to artists such as Emily Haines, Susanne Sundfør, Sufjan Stevens, and Cat Power.
After shutting the proverbial door on “i.e. kokoro,” Kelly now makes her debut (as herself) with the upcoming release, STUPID IDIOT, an album inspired by personal experiences with the complexities of mental health. STUPID IDIOT releases on all streaming and download platforms on April 7, 2023.
