KT Lee





Roots Run Wild strikes the perfect balance between sweetness and ferocity with their blend of unique instrumentation, robust styling, and powerful vocals, creating a distinct flavor seasoned by Americana, bluegrass, reggae, and folk music while frequently sneaking into pop territory with their catchy melodies and hooks.


Known for their vocal teamwork, singer-songwriters KT Lee and Kelly Ann Fernandes use music to explore the challenges of finding your own way, healing from trauma, personal growth, relationships, and developing a rich inner life and sense of self, always expressing a love of music itself and its incredible restorative power. 


The band’s debut album will be released in fall 2024 accompanied by a regional tour, dates TBA.

“Roots Run Wild brings an enthusiasm and love for music making to their performances that is infectious with audiences. The tight blend two part harmony singing of KT and Kelly at the heart of their sound establishes a central focus that allows them room to explore multiple genres while giving their listeners a warm and inviting sonic home to anchor to on the journey.”
~Jeff Angeley (New Bedford Roots & Branches Festival)

“I love booking Roots Run Wild for my concert series! They are the perfect mix of upbeat music and chill vibes. Their music and performance is always great, and I know the audience will have a good time.”

~Michael McLean (Stoveboat Concerts)


“I had the pleasure of booking Roots Run Wild for a songwriter series that I hosted in Providence, Rhode Island. The entire audience, myself included, were captivated from the start. The harmonies and vocal blend from KT Lee and Kelly Ann Fernandes are striking. Add to that clever songwriting and catchy melodies and it’s hard not to be won over by these talented musicians.”

~Steve Allain (The Graduate Sessions)


“I have watched KT Lee and Kelly right from the beginning when they first met at an open mic… their harmonies are so good you would think they were sisters… they totally have their own sound. Once you hear them you are hooked.”

~Gary Fish (Sandywoods Open Mic)
