FACT OR FICTION?
With absolutely no assistance from a publicist, record label or a radio promoter, and on a whim an indie artist mails loosely recorded tracks (created specifically as a CD for potential merch sales at shows) to a few reporting radio stations.
The results: #1 positioning on the RMR Chart and a top choice Album of The Year classification by recognized critics.
Are you kidding? This sort of thing doesn't usually happen. Absolute fiction, right? Well, read on folks, Kerri Powers is the artist. The story is fact.......here's the skinny.
Kerri was raised within a family embedded in the Arts and music became her passion. At 19 she emerged on the Boston music landscape, performing original material to rave reviews followed by invitations to perform at a host of major venues and music festivals. Amidst the hubbub, Cupid's arrow found its mark. The lure of the stage was overtaken by the force of romance and her budding career slid into a state of unforeseen suspension. The relationship became unhealthy, bouts of depression ensued and the additional circumstance of childbirth all combined to suppress her underlying desire to pick up where she left off - yet through it all she held on to the dream and, at least, continued to write.
Fast forward, her child has matured, the marriage has dissolved. The tunnel's light has shone through. Kerri gathered her tunes, picked up her guitar, made a couple of calls and opened for a few significant artists. The exposure led to headlining a couple of intimate venues and, as described, she laid down a few tracks to create a CD she could sell at gigs. She mailed it off to radio and bingo, the unheard of happened…The #1 chart position on the RMR Chart.
Kerri has also garnered song placements on television and in feature films, the most recent being "chuck," starring Liev Schreiber and naomi Watts.
The results led to Kerri’s most recent collection of songs, written during a transitional and healing period that piloted the new album recording, Starseeds, targeted for a US release in 2018.
