About The Show
Phat Lip is a Greenville-based band that fuses Afro-Cuban and Colombian folklore rhythms with catchy, American pop.
Colombian American singer-songwriter Kelly Jo Ramirez began as a solo acoustic act, performing in South Carolina’s most reputable bars and restaurants, and formed funk-rock band The Kelly Jo Connect in 2010. In 2016, even after a band hiatus, The Greenville News named her “Best Female Vocalist.” Ramirez’s exposure to a constant flow of bilingual culture – growing up listening to Latin heroes like Joe Arroyo and Celia Cruz alongside pop greats like Prince and Paul Simon – set the stage for Phat Lip.
Ramirez started Phat Lip as a GarageBand pastime. Her build-it-and-they-will-come mentality led to a five-song EP and a group of four guys ready to dabble in Latin fusion. The EP, Vision, offers a spectrum of American, Latin, and even Brazilian influences that intertwine effortlessly. The single “Stranger’s Love” is completely immersed in Afro-Caribbean flair, while “City Lights” dances between capoeira and grunge-era rock. Her latest EP, “Bembona” will debut in conjunction with her Genevieve’s performance on Friday, December 4.
"A potent mix of soulful blues, Latin roots rhythm, and moody pop"
"Phat Lip is a perfect-fit combination of Kelly Jo’s passionate, explosive voice and a modern-day version of the Latin pop she loved as a child.”
