Nancy Kelly
 
  Kelly’s refined stage presence, style, grace, and the ability to quickly capture the emotions of her audience isn’t the only thing that places Nancy in a league of her own--the lady was born to swing, and she means business.
Starting at age four in her hometown of Rochester, New York, Nancy studied piano, clarinet, drama and dance with private instructors, and voice at the Eastman School of Music.

During her thirty-plus year career she has honed her trademark swing/bop take no prisoners style in front of audiences across the U.S. and abroad--from Singapore to Switzerland, from Turkey to her 3 tours of Japan.
Nancy appears regularly in New York City including performances at The Blue Note, Birdland and The Rainbow Room. She works frequently in Los Angeles and Miami, as well as countless jazz clubs, festivals, and symphony orchestra engagements across the country.

Downbeat magazine’s reader’s poll voted Kelly the title of "best female jazz vocalist" two years in a row.
All of Miss Kelly’s accomplishments and accolades are testament to the fact that a great jazz voice doesn't happen overnight. More than any other instrument the voice gains its resonance and soulfullness from the life experiences of the body that surrounds it. To paraphrase Bird--If you haven't lived it isn't going to come out of your horn.

Nancy Kelly has lived it. She is, in every respect, "The Real Deal".
