“Relax & Record”
Dwayne “D.K.” Kelly
Man Behind The Music Dwayne “DK” Kelly’s love for music began in the 6th grade when he was asked to be in the band. When he played his first instrument, the trombone, he knew that music was the thing for him to do. “DK” has been making music for over 15 years now. Being a producer, engineer, songwriter, and recording artist are all labels he wears proudly… being a “Quadruple Threat” requires patience, dedication, and focus. Making music has taught him that every challenge is an opportunity to learn something new or add a fresh perspective to the creative process. His musical projects are a direct connection to his world, how he sees things, and what life is to him.
While he embraces all of the gifts and talents that God has given him, he knows he has a “knack” for music production. The type of music that inspires him is smooth jazz and oldies. He says that, “It has so much more meaning and substance than music done today”. The one rapper that had an impact on him was Tupac, “He was one of the best rappers because he could get on anybody’s level and talk about any subject in lyrical form”. The group that influence him most is, Outkast, because of their creativity and diverse style in music. The producer that intrigues him is, Timberland. He has a style that is so unique and can produce music for almost any genre of music.
DK has been involved with music groups such as G.S.C. and Exzile Records at Georgia Southern University, IceBoxx Entertainment, and The Officials in Atlanta, GA. As an artist he has performed for the YMCA, the Power Fest in Augusta, GA, the Red Light Café, Paine College, Porter Sanford III Performing Arts Center in Atlanta, GA, and the Atrium in Atlanta, GA. He has been a judge at various talent shows including, ATL All Stars showcase in College Park, GA. DK has also recorded voice-overs for the independent film, Tempting Fate. The voice-overs were recorded from English to the Yoruba language (Nigerian) at Sound Resort Studios.
He has been fortunate to work with some outstanding professionals and some pretty inspiring talent. Through his music he wants to bring people hope, inspiration, motivation, and love.
My life is recited through these songs that you play
So what will happen if it all fades away
Will it ever been a rapper by the name of D.K.
Will I ever had a chance just to have my say
God Knew what he was doing when He made this clay
I got the gift of music so everything is in place…”-
Life Without Music by Dwayne “D.K.” Kelly
