New York City-based vocalist Kelly Ash blends jazz, folk, soul and pop to create an inviting atmosphere of rich harmony, poignant lyrics, and playful folk/ rock elements. Steeped in tradition but with uniquely modern flair, Kelly seamlessly fuses the intricacies of jazz with contemporary singer-songwriter stylings.
Performing repertoire from the Great American Songbook as well as fresh arrangements of contemporary covers from songwriters such as Tom Waits, Sting, The Fleet Foxes, Joni Mitchell, Beatles, and Nick Drake,
Kelly proves herself a jazz singer steeped in tradition who is unafraid to embrace the music that moves her generation. Drawing on her diverse influences to express her own unique vision, her music presents a cohesive sound that explores and reflects her background. Kelly has a Masters degree in jazz performance (voice/ piano) from New York University, and is a member of the NYU adjunct faculty and the New York Jazz Academy faculty.
“Kelly Ash is a jazz singer with all the qualities needed. Style, originality, creativity and a great instrument!” --Greta Matassa-
