Aphrodites Child by Juliet Kelly

Becoming a jazz singer seemed an unlikely prospect for Juliet who grew up in London in a strict, religious household. In fact, all music apart from the religious variety was completely banned! After following the expected path by studying for a degree in economics, everything changed when she discovered that she had a talent for singing after enrolling on a jazz acappella vocal class at a local music workshop. She knew nothing about jazz and had never sung in public - but it wasnt long before she was completely hooked...

Within a year she had auditioned for and been accepted on to the postgraduate jazz course at London's prestigious Guildhall School of Music and Drama. Since then Juliet has worked with many outstanding musicians and performed in venues around the UK as well as in Ireland Germany Italy Israel and Australia.

She found her Acoustic Groove sound and started writing her own songs after deciding that as much as she loves the classic standards she wants to share her own fresh perspective of the beauty freedom and expression of jazz-influenced music - music that can appeal to a younger audience as well as to more mainstream jazz fans.
