About Us

Val Kelly is a sassy London based alternative ROCK/POP/SOUL singer/songwriter who initially travelled to London (from ‘Up North’) several years ago in search of work and by a strange twist of fate fell head first into music. A regular performer on the festivals circuit in both the UK and France and London showcase, she steps proudly in the footsteps of velvet toned soul/folksters such as Desree & Joan Armatrading when in her laid back acoustic zone, while when at full tilt she exudes the energy and stage presence of a young Tina with a tinge of Beverley Knight meets the White Duke – passionate, yet edgy, raw yet polished.

A ‘visually engaging’ artist with a highly visible love and passion for live performance and a natural affinity towards her audience, few would have believed that for several years both on and off stage she had been battling with the life altering and debilitating illness Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (commonly known as M.E or Chronic Fatigue Syndrome). After taking a year out, she is ‘chuffed’ to say that she is now fully recovered – a 10 day trek in Peru at altitude at the end of 2008 officially confirmed it – and like a school girl with a Quality Street toffee overload…is excitedly back on track. She has twice supported UK rock/delta blues legends ALABAMA 3 (composers/performers of ‘The Sopranos’ theme tune ) & HONEY RYDER and has received internet radio airplay.

In 2010 one of VALL’s songs – ‘Because of You’ – was awarded the ‘runner up’ position in the Adult Contemporary category of the internationally acclaimed UK Songwriting Contest – UKSC and she received an invitation to write a song for an independent French film company (which is well under way). With the remix now in the bag, VALL is currently in the final stages of completing her self penned, debut album. Although a little later than planned, this is scheduled for release in early 2011 with a London based album launch to follow.

There area also full electric & scaled down acoustic band gig dates coming soon….Keep an eye out for VALL live …you won’t be disappointed…

Please…drop her a line via myspace…have a chat…..send her a message… ask to join her mailing list….get connected… She would love to hear from you.
