TAYLOR KELLY was born and raised in Rochester, NY and currently resides in Philadelphia where she leads her 8-piece band. She has a voice that blends jazz, soul, funk and truth and on-stage presence that is both electric and alluring. Her songwriting tells tales of triumph in hopes to inspire many to live fully, love and forgive. Also an active trumpet plater, Taylor strives for an instrumental approach to singing, a rhythmic phrasing and an improvisation that is reminiscent of many of her trumpet playing influences (Chet Baker, Roy Hargrove to name a few.) Taylor has released two albums and will be releasing her third, "Do U Feel Me" in late June 2017.
