The Jellyman's Daughter
Initially a duo of Emily Kelly & Graham Coe, and now a quartet, The Jellyman's Daughter lands squarely in the middle of an intriguing crossroads between bluegrass, post-rock, folk and soul.
Mixing their unique vocal harmonies with wild and visceral cello, driving guitar and sweet mandolin, Emily and Graham write their songs together with a focus on doing something new.
The debut album, released in late 2014, established The Jellyman’s Daughter as something fresh and exciting, going on to tour the UK, Europe and Canada.
Their second album, ‘Dead Reckoning’, is a marked step forward in maturity, depth and scope while retaining the affinity that is the foundation of the outfit’s sound. Featuring prominently is banjo player Jamie Francis (of Radio 2 Folk Award nominees Sam Kelly & The Lost Boys) and double bassist Paul Gilbody (KT Tunstall, Adam Holmes & The Embers).
