SONG – Mountains of Men

Music had left me a long while ago. It's back now, but as with everything it must be fluid so I don't expect it to stick around. -NEW song, NEW video- Never before did a song of mine have so many different meanings and layers for me. They usually had one meaning or were about one situation. This one expands, for me, over time and space, it's about you, it's about me, we are all one. Everything entwined, living and dying all at the same time, round and round we go in this magnificent, bittersweet experience. 
 
Will you follow me where I go
Will you follow me where I go. 

This path is so crooked, but it's truly mine. 
I came in barefoot, across the borderline. 
How I struggled uphill, mountains of men. 
Grew into a landslide, came down again. 
Came down again. 

Will you follow me where I go
Will you follow me where I go.

You broke it and returned it

I’ve started writing in English again, my heart wants to. Here’s a demo for a new song

LYRICS

I wrapped it in soft linen
And I placed it on the table
I made sure the table’s sturdy
I made sure it wouldn’t fall

I watched it as you picked it up
Caressed it, held it in your arms
And I closed my eyes a moment
To let it sink in

And every so often I would
Pick it up to check it
It looked perfect like it did
When I put it there

Then I saw you hold it with a frown
And quickly after you put it down
And we watched
As it fell to the floor

You said you didn’t care for it at this time
And you want to return what is rightfully mine
And you broke it before you returned it

You said it doesn’t do it for me anymore
So I don’t know what I would be doing it for
So I broke it and I’m returning it
You said you can have it back, coz it’s broken anyway

Zinken & Zweven (2016)

2016-03-14 CD hoes DIGITAAL Voorkant KLEINERToen singer-songwriter Elly Kellner negen jaar oud was schreef ze heel waarschijnlijk haar eerste liedje. In 2014 bleek ze haar duizendste lied te hebben geschreven ‘Zo Lief’ en in het jaar daarop wilde ze graag een Nederlandstalige plaat maken. Er waren teveel songs om uit te kiezen en van dit luxeprobleem maakte ze een klein feestje door eind 2015 haar eigen songfestival te organiseren. Na de eerste voorselectie bleven er twintig liedjes over waar de publieksjury punten aan gaf. De tien hoogst scorende vind je op haar nieuwe album Zinken & Zweven; de volgorde is geen willekeur maar ook gebaseerd op de uitslag van de jury. ‘In M’n Buik’ en ‘Liefde Te Geven’ delen samen de eerste plaats, nummers 11 en 12 zijn bonustracks die Elly graag extra wilde toevoegen.

Zinken & Zweven is te beluisteren via Bandcamp, via Spotify en iTunes. Of je kunt het album direct bij Elly bestellen voor €15,- (exclusief verzendkosten).

The Creatives

You rarely see or hear them. They sit in their houses with cups of tea, buzzing ideas and many unanswered questions. Their eyes seek and find, their brains create and unwind. Among the 66.000 inhabitants of the Burgundian city of Bergen op Zoom (The Netherlands) there are many Creatives silently at work. And when it’s done… it is there for the whole world to see while they are already working on the next thing. Artists, musicians, thinkers and do-ers each filling their spot in this quaint place. For this video we were able to ‘catch’ and portray eight Creatives but ofcourse there are several more to be found in the wild. Seek, and ye shall find.

‘The Creatives’ was written by singer-songwriter Elly Kellner 4th July 2015. All creatives were then filmed in Bergen op Zoom (The Netherlands) by singer-songwriter Elly Kellner at the end of 2015/start of 2016. Please visit each artist personal website to see more of their work, click below:

Vlogs of my tour with Shannon Lyon

Here we are! In the space of three weeks Shannon Lyon, BJ Baartmans and I have given sixteen concerts. It was a big deal for me and although it was only the third time for me I managed very well. Life on the road can be tough. I made a short video for each day we were on the road. You can view these vlogs now in a special playlist…enjoy!

Stop police!

I never thought I’d hear myself in a television series but alas it has happened!

The song ‘In all honesty’ from the album ‘The lights behind’ (Shannon Lyon with backing vocals Elly Kellner) can now be heard in the Canadian Police series ‘Rookie Blue’. They are already in season 6 and in episode 3 you can hear us singing smoothly and gently 🙂

You can watch the episode here by clicking the photo below (sadly, people from the Netherlands are unable to watch it).ROOKIEBLUECANREN

 

Girl from Manitoba

The last couple of weeks have been interesting and boring at the same time. My computer had a serious breakdown and was in the hospital for over three weeks. Luckily the doctor, my dear brother, was able to fix the machine and save all the files on there. I had been working on a nice project for Shannon Lyon. I sang backing vocals on his song ‘Girl from Manitoba’ and I was in the process of making a video for it too. Now…I finally got to finish it 🙂 A song and video to welcome Springtime in 🙂

Special thanks to all the lovely girls & ladies and Kolder, Café Helene, Quist Bookshop, Vijf Wijzen, Les Vedettes Café Culturel

Song taken from Shannon Lyon album LOST CREEK (2015) featuring Elly Kellner, Mike Roelofs and BJ Baartmans. There is also a Canadian version of this video, check it out here.
