Juliet Kelly is one of UK jazz’s hidden treasures. Gifted with a beautiful, expressive voice, she is also a talented, highly original songwriter who draws on a diverse set of influences and has performed with the likes of Courtney Pine, Seb Rochford and Talvin Singh.
Juliet has released 4 albums to critical acclaim receiving widespread radio airplay. She has appeared at clubs and festivals throughout the UK and Europe with concerts in Italy, Germany, Greece and Russia and opened for legendary artists Hugh Masekela, Georgie Fame and Take 6.
With her love of jazz classics, beautiful voice and a talent for writing charming originals with infectious rhythms and catchy melodies, Juliet’s performances are filled with warmth, humour, pathos and beauty.
‘One of those rare singers that tells a genuine story with her music, through her passionate performance and naturally warm voice, it’s a beguiling combination that’s hard to resist. One of the UK’s finest singers in any genre.’ Time Out
“The nuanced warmth of Kelly’s rich, full voice is streets ahead of most of her contemporaries.” BBC Music magazine
“Kelly has been a well-kept secret of the UK scene for some time, but the honesty and charm of Spellbound Stories might change that.” John Fordham, The Guardian
