I am a jazz vocalist, lyricist and composer. I discovered my singing voice at a music workshop that I attended during the holidays whilst studying for an economics degree. I had never dreamt of becoming a singer but since my very first performance, I knew that I'd found my vocation.
I've released 4 albums of mostly original songs to critical acclaim and toured extensively throughout the UK and Europe, with a few performances as far afield as Hong Kong, Kuala Lumpur and Australia.
I've been lucky enough to work with some amazing musicians including Seb Rochford and Courtney Pine and have opened for Grammy award winning artists, Take 6, Georgie Fame and the legendary Ron Carter.Website: www.julietkelly.com
I am a graduate of the Guildhall School of Music and Drama with over 10 years of experience as a vocal coach. I have worked in many colleges and institutions including City and Islington College, Lewisham College and Richmond Adult Community Colleges and have run music workshops with choirs and community groups. I also have extensive experience of working one-to-one with clients and have worked with a range of students from someone in their fifties who had never sung before to a singer newly signed to a record label to a hopeful preparing for his X-factor audition (yes - he got through to Bootcamp!)
I have found myself informally coaching others for years and have often been contacted for help by musicians starting out or needing help with marketing or applying for grant funding etc and decided that it made sense for me to broaden my services to offer coaching on a wider level to creatives or would-be creatives.
I like to think of the creative process as the cycle from pupae to butterfly. Sometimes we need to hibernate and nurture our creative ideas but other times it takes huge changes and a massive upheaval to bring our creative projects to life. I can help steer you through this by listening, working with you to find solutions to your challenges and supporting you though the process.
I have taken several coaching courses over the years but recently completed an Advanced Creativity Coaching course with Eric Maisel PhD, widely regarded as America's foremost creativity coach.
