Kelly Bayfield brings together a perfect blend of classic Laurel Canyon singer-songwriter & folk singing traditions from both sides of the Atlantic. Her pure voice is unmistakably English but finds itself equally at home with Americana, jazz, pop, or country.
Kelly Bayfield’s effortless vocals have been likened to Joni Mitchell and Karen Carpenter, and her ear for “lush Stillsian harmonies” and natural talent for songwriting have put her in high demand in her home county of Suffolk and beyond.
Regular appearances on BBC radio and at rootsy festivals such as Maverick & FolkEast, together with collaborations alongside Kev Walford, David Edward Booth, Honey and The Bear and New Orleans crooner Drew Young have all provided the perfect springboard for her eagerly anticipated solo album release – coming in early 2022.
“A beautiful, sultry female voice (close to Nora Jones, or Alison Krauss)…a soothing cranial balm, and some joyous gospel interludes are aural paracetamol.”
“She takes a charming lullaby that shines like a ragged band of angels.”
