Next appearances on The Blues Train:
Kelly Auty is known for her passionate and energetic style. Her voice pulls at the heart strings, then invites the audience onto the dance floor and on occasion to join in singing. Lots of fun.
Kelly began singing in church choir, music theatre and the Opera as a teenager and has forged an illustrious career. She has produced ten albums of unique powerful originals and favourite cover songs. Kelly has appeared at many Australian festivals, suppported Janis Ian, Eric Burdon, Mary Coghlan, The Divinyls, Manhattan Transfer, and sang support for extensive tours with The Drifters and The Platters.
In 2018 Kelly and her band travelled to Memphis to compete with 240 acts from around the globe in the International Blues Challenge where Kelly’s Blues presented their new original repertoire to adoring fans and won a place in the semi finals. It was a thrilling adventure none of the band will ever forget.
Also in 2018 the Kelly Auty Band won the Vic Tas Blues Music awards
for Band of the Year and was a semi finalist in the Chain Awards Artist of the year category.
Kelly is always writing and creating her next musical adventure. She’s at the top of her game and alive and kicking, a mainstay of the Melbourne music scene.
Jose Feliciano “Kelly sings from the heart.”
