Memorial Day Weekend: Madison WI

Kelly Roose

Sunday, May 30 | Country/Pop | Ameriprise Financial Island Stage | 11:00am

Kelly is a local artist from Waunakee, WI. She grew up in Warrens, WI and music has always been a part of her life. Singing is in her bones, it’s as much a part of her as breathing air.

Kelly has a calming voice with gravity that no matter whose ears it falls upon, it has a way of drawing them in and leaving them wanting more. She appreciates many styles of music which is why you’ll see her cover songs ranging from Carrie Underwood, to Miranda Lambert, Dolly Parton, Adele, Kelly Clarkson, Maroon 5, Missy Higgins, Calum Scott, Lady Gaga and more. Weddings, church worship teams and special events have been her main source of singing until she picked up a guitar a couple years ago and started teaching herself how to play. After finding the guitar, music started to take off for her in a whole new way when she started experiencing hearing issues in one of her ears. She took a break from singing in a band after being diagnosed with a disease that affects the inner ear as she went through a transition of adjusting to severe hearing loss and tinnitus in her right ear and needing to wear a hearing aid. It has been an ongoing challenge to re-learn how to balance sound but she is constantly working at it and has started singing live again. She is a novice guitar player but her passion for singing comes out in the first note she delivers. She has won singing competitions, sang at festivals, and at local businesses around the Madison area. She is excited to be back in the saddle and on a stage singing again!
