“ With her unique voice, Natashia Kelly sings in a totally personal and inhabited register, revealing various and intertwined sound palettes ,which would probably be wrong to reduce to the four letters of the word jazz.”
(Yann Viseur, live concert L'Aéronef, France).
Natashia, born in Belgium but with Irish roots, is a singer and composer. The Sean-Nòs singing (Irish a capella) inspirers the way she approches a song.
Her Jazz-background gives her freedom to be adventurous, to improvise over pieces, to explore the nuances in her voice and to blend with each instrument.
The way she composes and writes the lyrics is with great attention to/care for “the content of the story”. Harmony and lyrics will evoque a visual world of our contemporary times.

Natashia received a scholarship of Flemish government in order to develop her musical ideas during one year. Great opportunity to focus more on learning.
