Folk musician Gabriel Kelley aims to write honest and original music. With simple guitar and elegant touches of tambourine and other small instruments, Kelley’s music has a classic country/folk rock sound to it. He has a lot of musical experience as a songwriter in Nashville, but grew tired of the industry. Kelley waited six years to make his own album, It Don’t Come Easy. See Kelley perform at the Rockwood Music Hall in New York on Aug. 23.
