Stunning. You’ll have to look for some time to find a tighter trio than Kelly Stanley & Company”  – Casey Heyburn BBC Radio Kent

Described as ‘Spellbinding’, Kelly Stanley is not your average Singer/Songwriter. Armed with a passionate and skilled voice, Kelly captures the listener as she questions what it is to be human in this world. 

Kelly began her career in music at the young age of 11, writing, playing and performing at a vast array of venues, from local pubs and clubs to the Portsmouth Guildhall and London’s Ministry of Sound. Many years working the circuit provided invaluable experience and time to grow and explore musically, as well as multiple appearances in the press and both national and nationwide television.

 Now performing as Kelly Stanley & Company,  Kelly is joined by some great talent; including Joe Millgate on Double Bass and Liz Ost on Cello. These new layers of instrumentation further enhance Kelly's catalogue of sincere songs, with subtle nuances and emotional drive. The group perform throughout Kent at a variety of venues including the infamous Music Room at Pizza Express and the yearly Rochester Sweeps Festival. Together their fusion of artistry and passion for  music make Kelly Stanley & Company a very special act.

Kelly’s latest release “A Way To Be” showcases a selection of songs that explore life through melody and emotion. Each track captures real heart thanks to the skill and passion of the players, whilst simultaneously transversing complicated matters of the mind, body and soul.
