“Melodic vocals, rich guitar textures and production values that highlight a continuing depth and maturity of song writing.”
Kelly Menhennett’s distinctive voice quiets the most crowded of bars, honky tonks and street corners in music-loving destinations all around the world. Armed with a shy charm and wry wit, she is a consummate storyteller. Kelly and her band’s combined magnetism, their spellbinding mix of alt-country, blues, and ballads will leave every audience craving more.
Touring both solo and with her band has seen her developing a reputation around the country as a unique and charismatic performer. She has been invited to support some great Austrialian and International musical acts (Archie Roach, Don Walker, Steve Poltz, Tex Perkins, Richard Clapton, Anne McCue and Busby Marou to name a few), shared the stage with her idol, Paul Kelly, in Nashville and graced the stages of some of Australia’s best venues and festivals such as the Woodford Folk Festival, Adelaide Guitar Festival, WOMADelaide, Queenscliff Music Festival, Adelaide Guitar Festival and Tamworth Country Music Festival, as well as the Americana Festival in Nashville.
“Kelly Menhennett has a voice that is equal parts force, fury and vibrato. Menhennett’s music had an exceptional blend of soul and blues, which conjured up thoughts of Sharon Jones and Ella Fitzgerald.”
