Juliet Kelly Short Info

An acclaimed jazz singer and songwriter, Juliet has forged her own unique niche on the jazz scene with her distinctive velvety voice, infectious grooves and Glam Jazz style. Her sophisticated sound perfectly encapsulates the glamour of the jazz divas of a bygone age - with a modern, sassy twist.

Spellbound Stories is Juliet's highly anticipated fourth album and is a set of songs based on some of her favourite novels. Novels used as inspiration include "The Colour Purple" (Alice Walker), Veronika Decides to Die (Paolo Coelho) and "White Teeth" (Zadie Smith).

“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

"This fourth album from vocalist Juliet Kelly completely seduces the senses... Kelly's wordless vocalese in Ghosts (mixed by Seb Rochford) is a standout, while "All He'll Ever Need" illustrates the singer's facility for penning the catchiest of vocal hooks... nothing quite prepares you for the wonderfully strange take on "Wuthering Heights", the album's sole cover." Peter Quinn, JAZZWISE MAGAZINE

"The nuanced warmth of Kelly's rich, full voice is streets ahead of most of her contemporaries and hearing her wrap it around the many styles presented here, which range from drum-driven primitivism to knowingly intimate balladeering, is a delight." BBC MUSIC MAGAZINE

"Kelly has found a way of marrying a jazz sensibility with R&B-inspired arrangements for acoustic trio that are never cliched. To top it off, she strips Kate Bush's Wuthering Heights to it's bare bones. Haunting." Clive Davis – Jazz Album of the Week, THE SUNDAY TIMES
