Singer-songwriter, Backing-voc

Elly Kellner on SoundBetter

Creative, soft-hearted and receptive singer-songwriter, specialties: warm harmonies/backing vocals and creating melancholy songs. I play a 4-string guitar in special tuning and I am part of Beyond Music and worked on a world music album due to be released Sept. 2019, under the guidance of Grammy-winning producer Larry Klein (USA).

My 4-string guitar in special tuning sometimes offers a dissonant siren but more often the gentle, warm whisper in your ear. Lyrically I try to go beyond existing taboo, right into the core of my own thoughts and feelings, with the firm belief that there must be others who'll recognize the mutual experience and feel less alone as a result. It is the only reason for me to keep sharing what I create.

I am part of the Beyond Music Network and with 21 artists from all over the world we recorded an album (due to be released Sept. 2019) under the guidance of Grammy-winning producer Larry Klein (USA) at Studios La Fabrique in the South of France. I have also had the pleasure to join Iain Matthews and his Matthews Southern Comfort (UK) on tour and sang backing vocals for Shannon Lyon (CAN).
