The Jellyman’s Daughter
Emily Kelly and Graham Coe are Edinburgh-based duo The Jellyman’s Daughter.
“Somewhere between the realms of folk, pop, rock and chamber music, Emily Kelly and Graham Coe let go of any sense of trepidation and go on to develop a deeply soulful, break-neck amalgam of new age roots influences”
Singing with an affinity and closeness that can often have audiences puzzling over who is singing which harmony line, Emily’s honeyed voice and Graham’s soft introspective tone have an almost matching vocal range. Their songs can range from a simple plaintive wisp of a feeling to imaginative musical endeavours incorporating guitar and Graham’s distinctive cello playing, which can range from powerful, driving rhythmic folk propulsion to delicate, sonorous post-rock-inspired underscoring. The full band comprises innovative 5-string banjo (Jamie Francis), bass (Leo Bacica), and drums (Ben Collard).
Recent years have seen the pair touring internationally in support of their sophomore album Dead Reckoning playing at prestigious festivals from Celtic Connections in Glasgow to Woodford Folk Festival in Australia as well as SXSW 2021.
The pair started 2023 with a 7 week tour of Australia and New Zealand and on returning home have taken themselves straight into the studio to record album 3 – due for release in late 2023.
