Claire Kelly is a vocalist with a difference. Not content with performing a specific genre, she currently performs with several bands covering funk, blues, soul, jazz, dub, reggae and acoustic styles around South East Asia.
Having played at venues such as The Sage Gateshead Centre for Music (UK), Stockton International Festival (UK) and The Hilton chain, Claire knows how to handle large audiences but similarly, gigs at The Bridge Hotel (UK), Boy Blues Bar (Thailand), Saltburn Jazz Club (UK), North Gate Jazz Coop (Thailand), Mojo Café (Thailand), No Black Tie (Malaysia) and Malacca's The Street Kitchen (Malaysia) have made her a prime entertainer for the intimate listening crowd.
Claire's stage presence can be attributed to the years she spent studying Performing Arts and Musical Theatre at Newcastle Performance Academy in the UK where she first honed her passion for performance starting in the mid 90's.
As well as the specific venues Claire plays she is also available to hire for any kind of event. Claire can be accompanied as a duet right up to a six piece band depending on your needs or budget with a combination of vocals, piano, double bass, guitar, saxophone, trumpet, drums, flute and trombone.
Whatever style you're after for your event or venue, Claire and her band of merry musicians will certainly be able to tailor a set perfect for your needs.
