About Kelly Barnes

Having been born into a musical family, I have always been surrounded by music. Since a very young age, I have always performed, whether it be dancing, singing or acting.

I began learning the guitar at age 13. Soon after, I knew singing and playing the guitar was what I wanted to pursue, so I made it an integral part of my focus and turned out to be a life-impacting decision.

Soon after I was ready to start playing publically. I was singing original songs at open mics and in various local venues by the age of 14, and soon became very busy performing professionally with gigs nearly every weekend!

I completed a 2 year Musical Theatre Course at Northampton College which led me to studying at the prestigious BIMM (British & Irish Institute of Modern Music) London on their BA Hons in Creative Musicianship Vocals course. Having Graduated from BIMM I now perform at private events, parties and weddings all over the country and internationally. I also write and perform my original music with a full band as 'Kelly Jane'.

My influences and inspiration in music include; Corinne Bailey Rae, Amy Winehouse, Joss Stone, Lianne La Havas, Allen Stone, Jack Johnson, J.P. Cooper and many more. My professional experience, enthusiasm and easygoing personality will make for a brilliant performance, and I will make sure that your event is one to remember!
