This is the original bio written for Ash Wednesday Rain in 1995.

Sit back and take shelter as Jeff Kelly gives Seattle’s best weather a much needed blessing. Kelly’s Ash Wednesday Rain is a culmination of the best influences from his now-occasional band, The Green Pajamas, but with more diverse instrumentation and subject matter. A product of a different Seattle music scene, Jeff’s music reflects the life and sounds of the city: the weather, the temperament, and the mood. He is truly one of the last romantics in the most traditional sense of the word. Ash Wednesday Rain is not about being trendy, it is music for people who like to listen to music and feel good while they do it.

The songs on Ash Wednesday Rain were not written for a specific album, they are a collection written over a period of time. They reflect real people in real situations according to Kelly’s unique perspective. Jeff Kelly’s songs are his life: his perceptions, his acquaintances, his dreams and especially his memories.
