THE MOST MELANCHOLY LADY OF THE LOWLANDS

Singer-songwriter Elly Kellner, Antwerp-born but based in the Netherlands, serves up songs that feel like a soft, warm whisper in your ear. Soothing but at the same time direct with radically honest lyrics. On a guitar with just four strings she occupies a unique piece of territory somewhere between jazz and folk.

Elly previously worked with Grammy Award-winning producer Larry Klein (Joni Mitchel, Tracy Chapman, Bob Dylan), Iain Matthews (Fairport Convention, Matthews Southern Comfort) and was awarded with the Tamoil Culture Prize for the Arts & Literature. Jury report excerpt: “Elly is able to write about what is sharp and painful in a way that makes it slightly muffled and vague and therefore easier to digest and look at.  At the same time she knows how to make the vague visible with exactly the right words...”

 

“Elly Kellner’s melodic sad songs have a way of disturbing and comforting the listener all at the same time.”  With her lyrics Elly tries to go beyond existing taboo, into the core of her inner world, with the firm belief that there must be others who’ll recognize the mutual experience and hopefully feel less alone as a result.
