So excited about my new show! After focusing on novels for my last album, I got to thinking about my favourite songs from cinema, stage and television. I'll be touring this new show around the village halls of Northumberland, Yorkshire and Cumbria in September and October. There'll also be a London show at the Elgar Room at Royal Albert Hall on 6 October.
Bond to Bowie: Songs of Stage & Screen
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. She has appeared at clubs and festivals throughout the UK and Europe and opened for legendary artists such as Georgie Fame and Take 6.
After several successful tours of her show "Celebrating the Divas of Jazz", the acclaimed singer and songwriter now shines a spotlight on her favourite songs from stage and screen. Bringing her warm personality and a jazzy flavour to the songs from classic movies, musicals and tv shows, Juliet will take you on a whistle-stop tour through the ages of musical entertainment.
"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
