Kelly Willis with Andrea von Kampen

6/6/2019 | The Triple Door

Music Downtown

A favorite with critics and the alt-country and Americana fans, Kelly Willis is a gifted singer and songwriter whose vocals can move from sunny clarity to passionate grit depending on the needs of the tune. Willis launched her recording career in 1990 with the album Well Travelled Love, but she first hit her creative stride with the 1999 independent release What I Deserve. Since then, Willis has carved out a comfortable niche writing and recording at her own relaxed pace, often in collaboration with her spouse, Bruce Robison (2013’s Cheater’s Game and 2014’s Our Year), while 2002’s Easy and 2007’s Translated from Love were fine examples of her talent and charm.
