The new EP, SUN ROSE is available now through CD Baby and your favorite online digital distributors.

Norman Kelsey delivers an EP that brings together his love of vintage 70s grooves and 21st century lyrical themes. "Sun Rose" was written as a motivating note-to-self after Norman returned to making music after a health-related hiatus. Its universal messages of inspiration and appreciation for the simple gift of being alive make this the perfect entry into any motivational playlist. The second track, "When I Say I Love You," is a love song with the feel of classic AM gold with lush, layered harmonies. The funky closer, "The Right To Dance" is a clarion call to take your demands to the streets, or the dance floor, or your living room to shake your thing. 

When all else fails, there is something to be grateful for, someone to love, and a groove to dance to and "Sun Rose" is your mini-soundtrack. Norman's trademark falsetto does appear, but mainly as support in the backing harmonies, with his mellow tenor taking the spotlight. He also handles the bass playing. Jason Berk added the lead guitar flourishes to "Sun Rose" and "The Right To Dance" and producer Adam Marsland supplied the drumming, keys, additional guitars and the unique solo on "When I Say I Love You." The sessions were mastered by Earle Mankey.
