After having spent over 20 years as the bass guitarist for local favorites The Goodies, Alias Patrick Kelly is making his Asheville solo debut in support of his forthcoming EP – An Unclaimed Inheritance. “Kelly’s lyrical and narrative range are twin beacons, shining in the dark as he tells exploratory stories that traverse loss, tragedy, and hopefulness.”

“Patrick Kelly, a singer-songwriter from Atlanta, nods to a sense of musical otherness in his self-given stage name: Alias Patrick Kelly.”

He began his career as the bass player for regional favorites The Goodies. The group spent the late 90’s and early 2000’s building a strong following throughout the Southeastern United States. While his years as a side man were coming to a close Kelly found himself beginning to write his own material which culminated in the release of his first full length – 2016’s Corruptibility Index.

Alias Patrick Kelly is currently touring the southeast in support of his new April 2019 release An Unclaimed Inheritance. The EP shows hints of early Springsteen with his own distinctive slant on the singer/songwriter genre.
