Meet Brogan Kelby, X96’s Live and Local Spotlight artist for November…
X96 Live and Local Spotlight is powered by CHG Healthcare Services.
Brogan Kelby is a 21-year-old artist born and raised in the suburbs of Salt Lake City. Brogan has been fascinated with music since he could stand—even as a toddler, he’d pull himself onto the stereo speakers and dance to the beat of whatever was playing.

Brogan got his first guitar at age nine and taught himself to play. He proceeded to teach himself to play the keyboard, drums and any other instrument he could get his hands on. Brogan wrote his first song, that he still performs, at age thirteen.

He started doing live performances at age fourteen. He performed at coffee shops, arts festivals, and multiple venues from Logan to Provo eventually earning opening spots for bands such as Thirty Seconds to Mars, Hollywood Undead, Neon Trees, Switchfoot, and many others. Brogan’s single “Who Cares” features drummer Branden Steineckert (Rancid, The Used). Branden also made a guest appearance in the music video.
