Kelly Oliver is a singer/songwriter, guitarist and harmonicist.. After graduating from Royal Holloway, University of London and travelling around South America, she decided in 2013 to pursue a career in music.
Since then, she has played gigs all over the country including the prestigious Hitchin Folk Club, Cambridge Folk Festival and Larmer Tree Festival, and has supported many artists including Phil Beer (Show of Hands), Barbara Dickson and Cara Dillon, the latter gaining her a 'promising...blends traditional with bold, indie-pop' review from The Times. She has performed live with Dave Swarbrick (Fairport Convention) and co-written songs with producer Nigel Stonier (Thea Gilmore). At the recent NMG Awards in Cambridge, Kelly won Best Female Solo Artist, and a slot at Secret Garden Party 2016.
Her debut album This Land (2014) was funded by an Emerging Excellence Award from Help Musicians UK, and received 4* reviews from The Telegraph and R2 Magazine, and Best Female Album from Folkwords. Her last 5 singles have had BBC Radio 2 airplay (Bob Harris Sunday and Mark Radcliffe's Folk Show) and BBC 6 Music airplay, plus premieres from Folk Radio UK, Spiral Earth and The Telegraph.
Kelly's second album 'Bedlam' released in March 2016 was one of Folk Radio UK's Featured Albums of the Month and was reviewed by The Times as being 'a canny mix of the traditional and contemporary'. Live performances and interviews on numerous BBC regional stations (including Mark Forrest's national BBC Introducing show), guest slots on London Live TV and an Under The Apple Tree session with Bob Harris have all helped Kelly become 'an emerging voice in British Folk music' (Bob Harris)
