Kelly Stoltz “Your Reverie”

Published in Blog, Culture Bully. Tags: .

The first time that I was introduced to Kelly Stoltz’s music he was opening for The Raconteurs here in Minneapolis. He seemed a bit possessive, slightly compulsive and entirely indulgent in each layer of sound that he created while on stage. But all the while he seemed genuine in his delivery, his music simply didn’t seem as though it was conducive to the live atmosphere. “Your Reverie,” the first single from his forthcoming February release Circular Sounds, comes across as though Stoltz has separated himself from the urge to over-do anything. Musically the single presents itself as a wonderful pop gem, orchestrated on the back of the song’s infectious organ and guitar; something miles away the memories I took away from the show a couple years back.
