Guest Biography


Jilly Martin and Ryan Brooks Kelly’s decision to join their musical talents and influences was, without a doubt,  the right one. There’s just the right amount of humble and swagger in their originals, covers and performances – and they compliment each other on, and off, the stage. Their partnership has resulted in Martin and Kelly becoming one of the country’s most sought-after, must-see country duos from New England to Nashville and beyond. 

Opening act highlights include:

  • Main stage opener at Indian Ranch for George Jones, Loretta Lynn, Neal McCoy, Randy Travis, Collin Raye, Mark Chestnutt and Sara Evans
  • Main stage opener at the Bank of NH Pavilion for the Outlaw Festival, (Willie Nelson, the Brothers Osborne, Bonnie Raitt and Alison Krauss) as well as Dwight Yoakam, Alabama and The Band Perry 
  • Main stage opener for Phil Vassar at Cape Cod Melody Tent, Cary Memorial Hall, Blue Ocean and The Cabot 
  • Main stage act at the sold-out Boston Country 102.5 Street Party with Kip Moore, Chris Janson and A Thousand Horses
  • Opener for The Oak Ridge Boys who invited Jilly and Ryan to join them onstage to perform “Bobby Sue” at The Cabot
  • Main stage opener for Montgomery Gentry at The Flying Monkey
  • Long-running residency at Loretta’s Last Call in Boston
  • Support act, various venues, for Brad Paisley, Chris Stapleton, Keith Urban, Eric Church, Miranda Lambert, Justin Moore, Jana Kramer, LOCASH, Eric Paslay, Dicky Betts and Rodney Atkins

Onstage, their passion for doing what they love is clear, and their enthusiasm to please makes them a fantastic addition to any bill. Jilly has the rare ability to deliver a vocal story with complete honesty, whether a gentle ballad or a powerful anthem. Ryan’s guitar work is a skillfully inspired force and their harmonies blend with an exquisite seamlessness whether presented as a two-piece acoustic duo, three or four-piece act. All of this with wit and charm and just the right look.

Life Changes Show

Show Host

Come and join the conversation about what's going on and what we can do together about it, with it, and for it. We have the choice, we have the power. We can do magic if we just believe!

A show about the changes going on in us, to us, around us, and because of us. Therefore, it's technically a show about "Everything," only with a how to make it better, see it better, be better.

In the show, there is talk about, and with, people who have either been through major changes, are helping others with major changes, or people who are changing the world for the better in a major way.

The show is a one-hour talk show format with a monologue by the host, a 30 minute interview with a guest of note, capped by a "Producer's Wrap" segment, in which Filippo and Co-Host Mark Laisure, and sometimes surprise guests, bring it all home for the listeners in a sometimes humorous and sometimes touching, but always entertaining conversation.
