KellyMarie is an up-and-coming singer-songwriter based in McKinney, Texas. Not too long ago, she released a lovely indie-pop tune, entitled, “ONCE+,” inspired by “The Office” TV show. Although the song is a reference to the character, Jim Halpert’s bold declaration of love, it’s relatable to any listener who’s ever wanted to be more than just friends.
KellyMarie – “ONCE+” single
‘ONCE+’ tells an adorable tale about a young woman who asks her friend, “You said I could tell you anything, did you mean it?” After exhaling deeply, she continues, “It’s always been you,” laying it all out there so her friend can feel it. “I’m so in love with you, I just needed you to know.” Of course, her friend is more than surprised, so she adds, “I wish you could see your face from here, I think you knew for a while.” The days of them just being platonic friends is in jeopardy because the demand for something more has just crept up in the equation.
‘ONCE+’ contains a friendship-based narrative, ear-soothing vocals, and breezy melodies. The likable tune possesses guitar-laden instrumentation flavored with a dreamy indie-pop vibration. Furthermore, “ONCE+” follows hot on the heels of KellyMarie’s previously released single, entitled, “Timing Right.” Also, the song serves as the second taste of what listeners can expect to hear on her upcoming debut album, entitled, “IT IS MY ALBUM.” The project, set to be released in Spring 2022, was produced by Chris Jacobie (Penny and Sparrow) and Jacob Hildebrand.
“It’s often said – write about what you know and love. So during the lockdown, I did just that.” – KellyMarie explained
KellyMarie celebrated the announcement of her upcoming album with her first post-lockdown show opening for the American band, Mae, at Dallas’ Granada Theater on February 5, 2022. This new project was a moment for the artist in which she dove headfirst into creating a body of work inspired by beloved household television staple, The Office.
KellyMarie found herself writing the lead single for this album at the electric moment that inspiration hit. Listeners can expect to encounter a new side of KellyMarie’s artistry that offers a deeper look into the singer we met in 2018.
