“kelda is a talented band with a genius for bittersweet love songs … Take the opportunity to see this quintet in an intimate club and you may well end up with an ‘I saw them back when’ story to tell.”
–Sarah Torribio-Bond, Music Connection Magazine
“Music is in my blood…” Growing up listening to musical tales of her family: from the experimental jazz of her father and her uncle, Ornette Coleman, to her mother, a singer on Broadway… kelda could not help but set out to create a musical legend all her own.
Before the age of 18, kelda had moved all over the country, living in six states and attending 11 schools. The only constants in her life were God, her mother and her piano. Even during these troublesome moves, usually involving great distances, her mother always insisted on bringing the antique, upright Nordheimer piano along. And so at the early age of five, kelda discovered her passion for the piano. Ever since, she’s had ebony and ivory on her mind.
Her musical transformation really began to take its course when kelda learned to compose and altered her focus from Bach and Chopin to her own creations. As she has stated, “the journey of songwriting has made all the difference.”
With musical influences from Tori Amos to Sarah McLachlan and Fiona Apple, kelda’s unique and hypnotic songs can liven the hungriest of audiences and sooth the loneliest of hearts. Â kelda is based in Los Angeles, but has toured throughout the United States, Europe and Asia. For booking information email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 323-829-9405.
