Jersey Devil Part III: Untouchable
Mychal Kelly is a veteran recording artist and entertainer. Born in New Jersey, he began playing music at age 5 and by 15 was playing professionally at local shows and events. He performed with several bands and recorded multiple albums in his teenage years into the early 2000's. Inspired by artists like The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Michael Jackson, Pearl Jam, and Limp Bizkit, his eclectic style was noticed by many industry critics. Acting on the advice of his manager, Peter Jaye (who most notably discovered and managed Zakk Wylde), Mychal decided to pursue a solo career. In 2002, he began recording and collaborating with several other musicians and producers. On May 20, 2003, 648 Productions released his debut solo album "The Jersey Devil'. But, promoting it with conventional live performances wouldn't be enough. After years of working with many producers and major-label A & R representatives, Mychal had become tired of conforming to the industry's manner of operating. In 2004, Mychal Kelly began recruiting a team of performers, musicians, and collaborators to add their touch to "The Jersey Devil Project". He also began writing a script for a movie featuring music videos to coincide with the next release. It would become known as Mychal's first full-length music movie 'Deja Vu'. It premiered on April 16, 2005, following the release of the second album 'The Jersey Devil - Part II: The 24 Dimensions', October 29, 2004. The music movie starred Mychal Kelly and collectively, his fresh crew of dancers and band members, as well as some special guests. It seemed as though Mychal Kelly had finally found his niche in the studio and on stage. 648 Productions continued the CD/DVD release format with the April 29, 2006, release of 'The Jersey Devil - Part III: The Untouchable' soundtrack and music movie. Then again, with the March 20, 2008, release of 'The Jersey Devil - Part IV: "Quietly Judging You', an epic concept album that quickly became a milestone in Mychal's career. It was followed by the March 14, 2009, premiere of the music movie 'Sex with Guitars'. Lastly, the final chapter, 'The Jersey Devil - Part V of V: 648' soundtrack and music movie was released on March 19, 2011. After ten years of recording, filming, promoting, and performing, Mychal was considering taking a break for a time or possibly permanently. But, in 2012, he unexpectedly began developing the next project. Highly inspired by many tiresome years of trying to reproduce live performances from challenging recordings with many tracks and engineering effects. The next project was aptly named "The Acoustic Project" or "T.A.P." and writing/production began immediately. However, the writing process was soon delayed by a major accident and the rehabilitation/recovery process bogged down production. In 2013, the entire project was rebooted due to 14 brand new songs that evolved out of the experience. Mychal's 6th solo album "T.A.P. - Part I: The Astral Plane" was released on September 20, 2014.
