Even at the age of five, Kerrie Roberts stunned crowds with her vocals, singing solos with her church choir. “I was so small, they had me stand on a milk crate so the congregation could see me,” she laughs. Today when you hear Kerrie’s huge voice, it is clear there’s much more going on here than just enormous vocal talent and prolific songwriting ability.
Kerrie began writing her first songs in high school, performing one during her own graduation. As she finished college, Kerrie began the long, aching pursuit of doing music professionally. Always proactive, she continued writing, performing locally, and even toured for a year as a background singer with legendary icon Engelbert Humperdinck, all the while establishing new relationships in the music community.
She independently released a single track in 2005, “It Is Well with Me.” In 2008, Roberts moved to New York, taking a desk job while pursuing her singing career at night, waiting for just the right offer. She finally found it with Provident Music/Reunion Records, which released her well-crafted debut album, the self-titled Kerrie Roberts, in the summer of 2010.
