Inspired by a diverse range of artists from Tom Waits to Ella Fitzgerald, and from Bonnie Raitt to Michelle Shocked, double-bass playing singer Kel Elliott takes her life experiences - and her views on the state of the nation - and hammers them out on stage with humour, irony, and a touch of mischief.
With her infectious, upbeat tales of life and lost love, a big, distinctly rich and powerful voice that sets her apart from her contemporaries, and the ecstatic support of guitar, keyboards and percussion from her talented band, Kel has has wowed audiences from Ireland to Finland: a star in the making. ______________________________________________________________________
'A singer-songwriter with the unusual distinction of being a double bass player; her songs are upbeat in every sense - lyrically optimistic and musically infectious… rich bluesy cafe-jazz.' Performing Rights Society
