THE MOST MELANCHOLY LADY OF THE LOWLANDS
Singer-songwriter Elly Kellner serves up melodic sad songs that have a way of disturbing and comforting the listener all at the same time. With radically honest lyrics and 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 Award for the Arts & Literature.
