Kellee wants to change the world. She feels we all have the power to help positively affect the world by "being the change we wish to see", as Ghandi puts it. While this can bei ncredibly challenging given our human tendencies and emotions, she believes we are entering a new stage of evolution in human consciousness.
Kellee feels that all people have a special gift that will be a piece in the puzzle to transform the world. We are all made of the same energy and therefore are really all one. Music and art will usher in the peaceful revolution we need from our current fear stricken society.
We can enjoy this time/space reality while opening hearts and minds, and creating lasting change.
“It was not a metaphorical term when I was told that the ‘sky is the limit’…because I feel like there is a lot riding on me and I’m determined to get where I always dreamed I would be…in the Skyy.”
Growing up on Minneapolis' south side Fancy, even at a young age expressed complete dedication to music in more ways than just her singing. Playing the clarinet, piano and trumpet as a kid only sparked her interest more and enhanced her musical abilities.Through High school she entered in to talent shows and attended drama classes with hopes of moving one day to LA to live the Hollywood dream, until she found herself to be more of a troubled teen, lost under peer pressure and eventually pregnant at the tender age of 17.
After years of pushing her love of music away, Fancy, more determined than ever left her past behind and decided it was time to dream again. With the efforts of her family and a supportive musical team backing her Fancy re-entered the music scene.
With her dynamic sound, Fancy is a multitude of talent. From R&B, Pop and even Hip Hop... Fancy does it all!With a resume that only compliments her own musical accomplishments.
Fancy has been privileged to earn writing credits for for both major and indie artist; as well as landing her own records on hit television shows and top Box Office movies.Inspired to take the music game by storm, "Bi Polar" The Album's first single dropped May 10th 2011, receiving hundreds of spins a week on both national and international radio stations.

Apart from the fact that Fuckop Family are inspired by bands from the '90s like Rage Against the Machine, Asian Dub Foundation, Sepultura, Mano Negra, Negu Gorriak or Beastie Boys, they have been also been influenced by film noir and "quinqui" cinema - a Spanish "petty-thief" film sub-genre. That is why, film dialogues and movie intros can be found along their discography. Even their image and aesthetics are related to this film genre.
Three editions of their first album "Esto no es Vida" (Zero Records 2003) were sold out just a few months after their release and they went on tour all over Spain.
A few years later, “Antisistema Sound Connection” (GOR Records 2007) was released in a CD and DVD edition which gave them the chance to take part in a great number of music festivals, concert halls and venues. This album was also edited in other countries, such as Japan (RB Records Japan) and Mexico (IDM Records).
In 2009, they recorded “Levante Corruption” (Maldito Records) and played at the most important Spanish music festivals, such as “Viñarock”, “Lumbreiras”, “Derramerock”, “Petroleorock”, “Alfarock”, “Yesterock” and so on. This album was released for the second time in Japan and Mexico in collaboration with Todos tus muertos (Argentina), Urban Poizon (France), Krakovia, Narco, Habeas Corpus, Sindicato del Crimen, Arma Blanca and Escuela de Odio.
They have now released their fourth album Spain no Brain (Ataque Zombie) from which 10,000 copies have been initially released with the magazine Rockzone (may 2012). It is their most developed, successful and original album of their music career. Fuckop Family are currently touring all over Spain.
