Angelic Appeal from Rising UK Jazz Singer Juliet Kelly


Sign in to view read count

Growing up in a strictly religious family that banned her from listening to any kind of music apart from the religious variety, London- born, Juliet Kelly has already overcome the odds to become a jazz singer and songwriter, releasing a debut album to critical acclaim that has led many to tip her as "one to watch". Now she is attempting what she has labelled "either an excellent or disastrous idea" to raise money from the jazz community to help release her next album.

On her website, Juliet says, "Although I've written an album's worth of new songs, so far I don't have any serious interest from any labels. Jazz has been pretty popular recently, but unfortunately record companies seem to be leaning towards standards and cover versions rather than original material. Anyway, I've had what may be either an excellent or a disastrous idea - I thought what if I could get say 1,000 people each to donate £1 / $1 (or whatever they could afford) towards the cost of recording my next album? Well, I've decided to put it to the test! If everyone reading this made a small donation, I'd be able to continue on my musical journey... Thanks in advance for your help!"

Juliet has also promised that larger donations will receive a credit on her album when it's released so if you fancy becoming one of Juliet's "Jazz Angels" go to www.julietkelly.com to find out more.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
