Soulful rock powerhouse, Kelly Moneymaker, is surrounded by an incredibly talented band of musicians–Herman Matthews on drums (Tower of Power), Michael Mennell on bass (Kenny Loggins), Lenny Castro on percussion (Rolling Stones), Gabriel Moses (Macy Gray) & Bruce Watson (Foreigner) on guitars and guest keyboardist, Kim Bullard (Elton John).
Kelly Moneymaker & In The Black creates a fresh sound with a nod to classic rock. Their new cd, “Race Against The Sky” (due for release this fall) is an unfolding journey for listeners. From soulful ballads to crank-it-up rock to tribal influenced epics…this is a phenomenal band, cd and an experience not to be missed.

Mixed by 2013 Grammy Winner, Ryan Freeland (Bonnie Raitt) & Curt Schneider (Five For Fighting)
