Cincinnati has birthed a new floor-shaker; Kelly Eryn.
At the age of 13, Kelly started crafting electronic music on her dad’s computer, using an MS DOS, 8-bit sampling sequencer. She began making sounds with anything she could get her hands on, and while learning to play drums, was producing an entire lo-fi industrial album in her bedroom.
By 22, she had played in numerous small, local bands, learned how to beat mix and scratch up battle records, and was hosting a weekly EDM mix show in her hometown of Columbus, Ohio.
After releasing a few songs and remixes under the moniker of apoq79, Kelly took a break from music until she was called back to the throne as drummer, beat-maker and synth player for the Cincinnati-based art-rock group, Phasmids, in 2015.
She would eventually take over as full time keyboardist, mix and co-produce two of their releases, before embarking on another solo career in 2021 and learning to play the guitar.
A multi-instrumentalist, production engineer and singer-songwriter, Kelly has unleashed her work in the debut single,"Walk Tall;" a progressive house banger with meaningful lyrics, groovy percussion and an infectious bass line.
What's next for Kelly? Remixing local bands, collaborations with other LGBTQIA+ artists both locally and around the globe, numerous singles and a full length concept album.
