Kelly's album titled "Another End" is singer/songwriter-based and influenced by a classical foundation. From 1998 to 2007, Kelly played in the band CrashFour and had many successes, including being voted Best Rock and Alternative Band in Boise Weekly's Best of Boise, performing at SXSW, and being sponsored by Budweiser and Bose. For the past two years, Kelly took a break from performing and concentrated on writing and recording. "I got a little burned out from playing out so much. It has been nice to be able to just sit back and write and record without the pressure of performing," says Kelly Martin. "Another End" took over five years to write. "This is the most personal album I have ever written," says Kelly Martin. The album ranges from songs about love, hate, and anxiety disorders to Kelly's most personal song "Should I" about his adoption and the decision of whether or not to reunite with his birth mother. This album has been a collaboration of many talented musicians from the Boise area. Becca Gourley, producer of "Another End," has worked closely with Kelly and is also a former member of the band CrashFour. "I have been bouncing ideas off of Becca for years, so it just made sense for her to be such a large part of it," says Kelly Martin. Rob Hill (Bass) and Scott Lindbloom (Drums) are from the band Stella and set the frame work for most of the album, while Josh Olswanger (Piano), Becca Gourley (Violin), Mark Doubleday (Cello), Dan Castello (Classical Guitar), and Russ Pfeifer (Organ) added the color.
