Keli Price, a 2009 graduate of Jericho High School, recently released his first single and video Move My Way, which is available at iTunes and wherever digital music is sold. Bonus tracks She’s Perfect and If You Would Stay will also be included in the debut single release bundle exclusively at iTunes.
Known to teenage girls as Chris Abeley from the Warner Brothers film The Clique, and Bobby Love from The Naked Brothers on Nickelodeon, Keli Price is excited about his new digital release. The tracks were penned by Price, including collaborating with Better Than Ezra front-man Kevin Griffin on the title track, Move My Way and on Don’t Stop Starting.
On his website, (www.keliprice.com) he talks about his parents having a major influence on his life and his career. “I think the biggest influence my dad had on me was through music,” said Price. “Dad was also an English major and loves to write poetry, music and scripts. My mom? What inspires me about my mom is that she is extremely persistent and driven. She has been this way her whole life. I have definitely inherited that quality from her. She has always supported my ideas and encouraged me to live outside the box.”
Price said that his parents exposed him to all types of film and media and wanted him to understand everything about life so they enlightened him to all types of artistic and thought -provoking film, music and art. “I was the luckiest little kid who got to see Bob Dylan, The Rolling Stones, Neil Young, Crosby, Stills and Nash, Elvis Costello, Ringo Starr, Tori Amos, James Taylor, Pearl Jam, Cream, Hall & Oates, Semisonic – way too many to list,” said Price.
The 19-year-old actor/singer-songwriter/model was introduced to show business as a Ford Model at the age of 4 and has appeared on the cover of the New York Times magazine for Polo/Ralph Lauren as well as campaigns for Tommy Hilfiger, The Gap, H&M, Cole Haan, Nike, Reebok, Sean John and many more. He has been seen in GQ, Vanity Fair, Esquire, Details and The New York Times.
Price continues to add to his acting résumé having just finished filming the theatrical feature, One Fall, due out in 2010.
Brenda Streitman, Price’s former teacher, said Price is “not only a talented young man, but a caring, loving, sharing human being. To meet him, speak with him, is to love him. He is a talent to be reckoned with.”
