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 and Talvin Singh.
Juliet's show Divas of Jazz combines her love for the jazz classics with her acclaimed songwriting ability to present a tribute to the jazz divas that have inspired and influenced her. With her distinctive velvety voice and ‘glam jazz’ style, Juliet’s performance includes songs from Nina Simone, Ella Fitzgerald and Billie Holiday.
It promises to be a fun, enjoyable afterno where you could find yourself singing along and tapping your feet to well known standards or swept off on a nostalgic journey by the heartfelt lyrics of Juliet's timeless songs.
"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
