Blues Vocals
Tickets on sale June 15

She sounds like a road-weary warrior with the passion of Aretha and the intensity of Bonnie Raitt. She combines vocal sensuality and sexuality in equal spades.” -Buffalo News

Kansas City-based blueswoman Kelley Hunt has been defying description for the better part of a decade, and she shows no sign of slowing down. With a commanding, passionate stage presence and superior skills as a vocalist, piano player and songwriter she has earned the respect of critics and fans across North America and Europe.

Kelley makes her way back to the Twin Cities in support of her latest recording, “Gravity Loves You.” This is a remarkable collection of 12 new songs from Kelley’s solo pen and songwriting collaborations with Kansas Poet Laureate Caryn Mirriam-Goldberg, as well as songwriters Sarah Hart and Dwight Liles.  “Gravity” weaves its way through roots grooves and arrangements that conjure everything from old-school funk to Philly soul to the intense, Gospel-influenced ballad style that is a Kelley Hunt trademark.

“Kelley Hunt remains an astonishingly well-kept secret on the blues circuit. She’s a powerful singer with a huge reservoir of blues and R&B muscle and can singe your eyebrows with a ballad or full-tilt boogie. She’s also a rollicking pianist…and a superior songwriter with a knack for going for the musical jugular… a swaggering live slab of smokin’ blues, high-energy swing and boogie-woogie.” -City Pages

Born in Kansas City, Hunt’s love for her craft was fine tuned listening to early blues, R&B, roots rock, jazz and Gospel influences – artists like Ruth Brown, Mahalia Jackson, Billie Holiday, Ann Peebles, Ray Charles, Dinah Washington, Aretha Franklin, Charles Brown, Wanda Jackson and a cross section of the New Orleans/St. Louis/KC piano traditions of Professor Longhair, Toots Washington, Johnnie Johnson and Kansas City masters Jay McShann and Mary Lou Williams among others. Before that came the sound of her mother singing jazz and blues – her first musical memories – and the influence of her New Orleans Gospel singer grandmother. Reminders of these very traditional influences are evident in Kelley’s live performances and recordings but the lyrics, soul and passion are all her own. Her career path so far has been a story of fierce independence, incredible will, unassailable cred as a blistering live performer and hard-won accomplishment.

“One of the best new songwriters in the genre.” -Seattle Times

The Hunt for bin Laden (Kindle Single)

July 23rd, 2011

The Hunt for bin Laden (Kindle Single)

The long, secret campaign to track down Osama bin Laden has been called the biggest, costliest manhunt in history. This reconstruction, compiled from reporting done by more than two dozen Washington Post correspondents and staffers over more than 15 years, traces the hunt from its beginnings in 1997 during the Clinton administration, long before bin Laden had committed an act of terrorism.

The behind-the-scenes narrative reveals that time and again, CIA agents had bin Laden in their cross-hairs only to have missions canceled at the last moment by superiors in Langley and the White House. In vivid detail, Post reporters recount how bin Laden tried to get a satellite signal to watch the attacks of Sept. 11 on live TV. That evening, he toasted his handiwork at a collegial dinner, expressing pleasant surprise that the attack had killed so many.

The Hunt for bin Laden chronicles the myriad ways he evaded detection in his years on the lam, his narrow escape from the caves and tunnels of Tora Bora, and how the war in Iraq drained resources and diverted the spotlight from the hunt, turning the mission to kill or capture bin Laden into a back-burner operation and political liability for the Bush administration.

As the hunt continued in the background, Post reporters never stopped writing about it, revealing how increasingly punishing drone attacks, interrogations of captured al Qaeda operatives and an ever expanding network of informants finally began to yield a trail, pebble by pebble. It wasn’t until the Iraq war began to wind down that the search gained its endgame momentum, the Post shows, reclassified as a highest priority again by a new president.

The breakthrough came when bin Laden’s shadowy courier was finally identified, and his cell phone intercepted. Wire intercepts and surveillance eventually led the CIA directly to a mysterious million-dollar compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan. After fourteen years, two wars and billions of dollars spent in the effort, a team of Navy Seals finally brought the hunt to a swift and conclusive end.

Tom Shroder edits dozens of contributors’ Washington Post reporting from over fifteen years, resulting in an essential digest of the apex jihadist as considered through the perspective of CIA and the White House–no matter who issued your passport. —Jason KirkThe long, secret campaign to track down Osama bin Laden has been called the biggest, costliest manhunt in history.
