Album Notes
Shane's warm and captivating voice with a clear blues influence blends irresistibly with the classic jazz melodies on this CD. Shane has a rich history performing live in New York, Chicago, Atlanta, Africa and Paris which has translated into this lush debut jazz effort.

Here's what you get with this recording: timeless tunes, unforgettable melodies, a "high-humability" factor, unique arrangements, warm rich bass (be sure to turn down your sub-woofer if you have one), a soundtrack to go with your favorite small-batch bourbon and expensive cigar, to dance to or to dine to or to road trip to...well, you get the idea. This is a jazz sound that you will crave!

What is the press saying about Shane Kelly?

"...on 'But Beautiful' and 'It Never Entered My Mind,' Shane
showed her potential to give platinum-level jazz singers
like Diana Krall a serious run for their money... Join us in keeping
a close eye on this woman. She has got energy and talent to spare."

Billboard (Larry Flick)

"On her sterling eponymous disc, she bravely - and
deftly - tackles such challenging tunes as Hal David and
Burt Bacharach's "The Look of Love" and Richard
Rodgers and Lorenz Hart's "It Never Entered My Mind."
Boasting a voice that fondly recalls Sarah Vaughan,
Shirley Bassey, and Carmen McRae, Kelly brings a
smoldering sensuality and worldly confidence to these
and the set's 10 other cuts."

Billboard (Larry Flick)

Think of the sounds of Sinatra, or Tony Bennett in a
posh steak house. There are white tablecloths, and the
waiters speak in hushed tones offering complimentary
brandy or cigars to finish off the meal. Now change the
voice to that of a female and you will have the
atmosphere that Kelly creates with her music,
in a word, "earthy elegance". She is truly a torch singer
like those of old.

"Her rich, warm voice, reminiscent of Rebecca Parris or Sarah
Vaughan, deserves the major attention, but the ensemble work
within the band is also first rate.

"Kelly's music is laid-back jazz blues, with a dash of Southern spice..."

Northern Californian Bohemian

"Her smooth, husky voice meanders through many melodic moods
as it wraps itself around such well-chosen jazz standards as the lovely and
languorous 'Lazy Afternoon,' 'My Foolish Heart,' and 'Love is a Simple Thing.'

Bay Area Reporter

"When Shane Kelly calls you 'Honey' in her moonlight and molasses drawl,
the already loving word is softened until it becomes the sweetest endearment
ever. And when she sings, she works the same magic."

Petaluma Argus-Courier

"That's a whole lot of talent and a whole lot of voice..."

Pure warmth!!
What a treat is Shane Kelly! This is one of the most beautifully produced CDs I've heard in a long while and it's a wonderful listen. Shane's singing and recording presence are pure warmth and her song selection is smart and exquisite. I'm looking forward to hearing where she goes from here because it will surely be far!

I think that shane has some great music here, she only has to grow up a bit and start sharing the light by mentioning who's playing on her songs she's recorded. I'd play with her if she starts coming up to speed.

Grant Henry, alive, sultry and balanced mix of divine inspiration
I usually have a hard time keeping a cd in the player, but this c.d. is perfectly balanced, taking me through a beautiful mix of human emotions. Each songs takes me back
to places I have been or places that I am going. This girl's voice truly has a connection to the Divine, with a range that is rarely captured. I want more of Shane Kelly.
