Musician

Nancy Kelly

Born:

Acclaimed jazz singer Nancy Kelly also enjoys a solid fan base from around the globe for her classic swinging style. Ms. Kelly’s artistry takes us back to a time when jazz – including vocal jazz - was an authentic expression of real emotion. Kelly’s vocal style is a study in phrasing, style and swing. She’s both old school and new. She’s experienced, yet her delivery and ideas are fresh. It takes real jazz chops to do that, and Kelly’s are solid. Always swinging, with a joyful sound and an ever-present undercurrent of the blues. Starting at age four in her hometown of Rochester, New York, Nancy studied piano, clarinet, drama and dance with private instructors, and later voice, at the Eastman School of Music
