Fairbanks, Alaska spawned Blues-Rock Powerhouse, Kelly Moneymaker. Kelly says, "Cold, long winters provided the perfect environment for creativity. As kids, we'd stay inside to listen to our favorite albums, practice endlessly, write songs/stories & we'd jam with all our friends." Since she went pro at thirteen, she's been busy building a diverse body of work–from her stint with platinum-selling trio, Exposé, to writing love songs for Days of Our Lives to Silvermoney’s hard-hitting, “Goddess Killer” to the blues-based rock of her new CD "Race Against The Sky." One of her dreams is to host an "Indie Igloo Music Fest" in AK where people build igloos for shelter while experiencing great music, healthy food, micro-brew & wildlife against a backdrop of breath-taking scenery.
