KELLEY JAMES, Musician with MARC ROBERGE, O.A.R. Lead Singer: Put Yourself Out There
3 days ago
Renown musician and freestyle rapper, Kelley James (@kelleyjamesmusic), and special guest, O.A.R. lead singer, Marc Roberge (@marcroberge) join The Brink of Midnight Podcast with John Brenkus. Kelley James has carved out a unique niche in the music world. Sought out out for being a high profile event performer and freestyle rapper, he’s played over 1000 shows to date and has toured and opened for acts like Kid Rock, Robin Thicke, LMFAO, Goo Goo Dolls, Sara Bareilles, Weezer, and O.A.R., among many others. Even more impressive is the roster of companies where Kelley is often the featured act: Oakley, Red Bull, Vans, Corona, Honda, AT&T, Google, Spin Magazine, Wheels Up, and more. Kelley got his start as a singer songwriter, but soon realized that his strength was harnessing the combination of his own musical ability, what’s happening in the moment, news and pop culture, and creating a crazy, unique experience. No two shows are alike and Kelley prides himself on genuinely surrendering to being in the flow, whether that’s freestyle rapping, playing guitar, channeling grunge or pop, or mashing it all up. In this conversation, he hones in on what can help us all climb whatever mountain we’re on and it comes down to getting really honest with yourself, asking for constructive criticism at every point, and being willing to put yourself out there knowing full well that you will fail, but grow, along the way. This episode gets really special when Kelley invites close friend and O.A.R. lead singer, Marc Roberge, to join the conversation and share how his band got their start. Marc offers up some great gems on what it takes to make it, and then Kelley and Mark treat us with a surprise jam session! Marc hops on the guitar while Kelley freestyle raps on the topic of what else -- life-changing moments!
