Kally hails from a Kentucky lineage that has generations of musical roots, “I was more interested in the stereo than the television. My parents had a classic country and Southern Rock record collection that consisted of Loretta Lynn, Waylon Jennings, Patsy Cline, Willie Nelson, Kris Kristofferson, Anne Murray, Barbara Mandrell and others.” A deep love of music famed the foundation for a lifetime pursuit of mastery of singing and songwriting and a willingness to push her own limits to bring her music to fruition.
Growing up in South Florida exposed her to a large variety of world musics and Latin rhythms. “South Florida is steeped in an incredible variety of world sounds, rich horn sections and energetic percussive beats; congas, bongos, steel drums, you name it. Anything to get people grooving and dancing and having a good time. When I’ve accomplished that, I’m happy.” O’Mally has a particular knack for combining styles and can move from writing a classic traditional sounding song like, Bourbon on my Deathbed to the more raucous and tongue in cheek, Down to the Floor. An admitted computer geek with a competitive side, she was inspired to jump into sound engineering so she could fully execute her musical vision.
O’Mally currently resides in Northern, California (Sacramento), where she performs live throughout the region with her sister Ally, and band The 8-Tracks.
