Keedy (born July 26, 1965)[1] is an American freestyle singer–songwriter best known for the 1991 Billboard Hot 100 top 20 hit, "Save Some Love". It was included on her only studio album.

Career[edit]

Born Kelly Ann Keedy in Abilene, Texas,[1] Keedy grew up in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Her debut album, Chase the Clouds, was released in 1991 to good reviews. The first single, "Save Some Love", became a top 20 hit, peaking at #15 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.[2] The second single, "Wishing on the Same Star" was a commercial failure, charting in at #86 on the Hot 100.[2] Due to management changes at Arista Records, promotional support for the single was pulled, and no other singles from the album were released.[3]

For a time, Keedy remained at Arista and attempted to work on a second record, but continuing management shifts eventually led to the project being shelved. She was released by the record label soon after.[3] After losing the recording contract, Keedy moved back to Wisconsin and continued making music. In the mid 1990s, she joined a local cover band, The Orphans.[4]

After leaving the band, Keedy teamed up with ex-husband musician Royce Hall. The duo have posted three demos on their "Royce & Keedy" MySpace page.
