When I was 15 my step father gave me a small stack of records he had collected through the years. Some of my favorite artists were discovered in that pile of treasure. It’s where I first got my study on with players like Eric Clapton, and songwriters like Jackson Brown. I would put these records on, dim the lights and lay in bed listening to every note. One record that was a treat to discover was Iron Butterfly’s “In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida”. A 17-minute song that took up an entire side of a record. I listened to that record until I wore it out, especially the organ solo around 9 minutes in. In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida dropped in 1968 and is widely considered to be the very first heavy metal album. Whether it is or not causes some debate, but one thing is for sure: Iron Butterfly certainly was the foundation that the houses of hard rock and metal were built on.
Her story is one that is not unlike many: aspiring songwriter dreams of someday debuting on stage to glory and fame. Then school, relationships and “real world” responsibilities would put it on hold. For years. For many, these pipe dreams would have stayed put in an old scrapbook pulled out on Friday nights. But for Kovach, aka KelMarie, it spawned a seconnd life and chance in the Sunshine State.
