Born Kelly Ann Keedy in Abilene, Texas, 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. The second single, "Wishing on the Same Star" was a commercial failure, charting in at #86 on the Hot 100. Due to management changes at Arista Records, promotional support for the single was pulled, and no other singles from the album were released.
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. 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.
After leaving the band, Keedy teamed up with her husband musician Royce Hall to form the band The LuvByrds. The duo continue to record and perform, and frequently post their demos on their "Royce & Keedy" MySpace page.
