Discovery: Sara Jean Kelley

Sara Jean Kelley is an American musician and singer-songwriter who writes haunting folk songs – Black Snake is her latest release.

By Jane Howkins

Black Snake has a waltzy rhythm to it, which works well with the lead guitar melody. There’s something very melancholic and haunting about the track, which is highlighted even more by Sara’s beautiful vocal style. Black Snake is quite a dark song (in terms of both themes and the style of the track) but I found this quite appealing and I would be interested to hear more from Sara Jean Kelley in the future – for now, check the track out below!
