One year ago today I self-released Music for the DMV (and in celebration, it’s discounted on Bandcamp to $3 til the end of August!). I’ve had a lot of great response to the album. I decided to do a little recap of what the past year has looked like in terms of promoting the album. I’ve embedded an image of the report below, or you can download as a PDF here.
Music for the DMV was honored at the Independent Music Awards this weekend by being nominated in two categories–Best Concept Album, and Best Longform Video. And I’m so excited to share that we took home the win for Best Concept Album!
Thank you to the Independent Music Awards for an amazing evening. It’s incredibly affirming to meet so many talented and dedicated self-released/indie artists, and to be able to celebrate each other’s accomplishments. Congratulations to all of the nominees!
QT Station, an online music series featuring only women & non binary artists, included the “dark” and “super dystopian “Sci Fi Drive” on yesterday’s episode. Check it out and enjoy tracks from a wide variety of excellent electronic musicians, ranging from dream pop to industrial to EDM to dark jazz and much more!
“…let’s be real if there is a hell it’s probably a lot like the DMV. Yet Elizabeth Joan Kelly’s music is like a guided meditation for the creatives, for the daydreamers in all of us, and something that helps us escape our immediate surroundings–and by accomplishing that she has made the mundane beautiful. For providing the soundtrack, and even anthem of all daydreamers I give this album my recc.”
