Kelly Zullo In Online Campaign To Raise Funds For New Record

Somehow between touring Europe twice, playing consistently in the states, and writing over 100 new songs this year, Kelly Zullo found time also to further a new style of guitar playing.  Featured in the forthcoming release, "Firecracker", Zullo puts the skill of a brilliant funk/slap acoustic guitar styling with equally as impressive song material, and on top of that a very decent voice.  If you're a fan of Michael Hedges, Ani Difranco, or The John Butler Trio, this album is for you.

Currently there is an online 'campaign' to help raise funds for the production of the album.  The campaign is located at: http://www.indiegogo.com/Help-Kelly-Zullo-Raise-funds-for-the-album-release?a=65412&i=addr

"The impact comes in selling the first 100 copies of the cd, to cover the cost of duplication, as well as, to have the ability to mail out 100 copies to independent radio and media for reviews, and to go on the road again," explained Zullo.  "Because I've done all of the recording in my own space, and used no help with musicians, the cost of the cd is relatively low.  Any funds not used in that process will help get me around the country this feb and march when I go on another tour.  Many of the events I do are for a cause or tips."

Samples of the cd can also be heard at http://www.reverbnation.com/kellyzullo
