Exceptional modern Americana and folk/roots from Scotland
Now booking UK tour dates for Dec 2018 & April 2019
True North Music is delighted to be working with our first UK booking client, outstanding Scottish artist The Jellyman’s Daughter. We specialise in American style roots music and we’re inundated with acclaimed American and Canadian artists wanting to work with us, so that tells you something about how special these guys are! The Jellyman’s Daughter blend Americana, folk/roots and a touch of bluegrass and pop to bring you an original but beguiling musical landscape. Mixing their gorgeous, haunting vocal harmonies with wild and visceral cello, driving guitar and sweet mandolin, Emily Kelly and Graham Coe (also a member of BBC Folk Awards nominated band, Sam Kelly & the Lost Boys) are exceptional performers and songwriters.
The Jellyman’s Daughter have gigged extensively in the UK, Europe and Canada, and also showcased at Folk Alliance International in Kansas City in 2016 and 2017. The release of their debut self-titled album in 2014 saw them receive a huge amount of critical acclaim, and in 2017, they spent much of the year working on their second album. “Dead Reckoning” (featuring several outstanding guest musicians plus a 16-piece string orchestra) was released in May 2018 and has already garnered an avalanche of glowing reviews. The Jellyman’s Daughter were also recently featured on Mark Radcliffe’s flagship BBC Radio Two Folk Show, as well as on Ricky Ross’ BBC Radio Scotland programme.
“Dead Reckoning is a gem of an album which warrants wide exposure….on the evidence of this recording, The Jellyman’s Daughter have plotted a careful course and are set fair for the greater horizons that undoubtedly lie ahead”. – Folk Radio UK
“ALBUM OF THE MONTH – A wonder of delights all the way through…Emily Kelly’s and Graham Coe’s playing and vocals are captivating. ” – Northern Sky magazine
With a major upcoming tour of the USA on the horizon, The Jellyman’s Daughter are set to sustain the momentum that has earned the band exceptional praise so far.We’re delighted to be working with the band to book a mini tour in early December 2018 and a longer run in April 2019, both featuring their trio line-up (including Jamie Francis on banjo). The Jellyman’s Daughter also has a captivating live presence in their duo format, should that be of particular interest for your venue.
