My name is Janis Kelly and I am on a mission to elevate, educate and activate your body, mind and SOUL! A life-long musician, performer, and musical instigator, I have spent more than 30 years inviting, inciting and igniting musical passion and potential whenever and wherever I can!
Honored to have shared the stage and studio with such musical legends as Carole King, Earth, Wind & Fire, The Neville Brothers, Tower Of Power, and Rufus & Chaka Khan, I have seen first-hand the power of music to build bridges of peace, harmony and commUnity, and I am proud to carry on that legacy in my own performances and musical endeavors!
In 2006, after more than two decades as a professional jazz and r&b vocalist, I began composing, recording and performing my own music, which I call “higher vibe soul:” funk, jazz, gospel and Latin rhythms, combined with uplifting, inspirational lyrics. I just released my brand new album, Say 'YES!' on November 27, 2016. While it's my sixth original recording project, it's my very first fully-produced studio effort--4+ years in the making! You can find it here and can also listen to samples on my "listen" page! http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/janiskelly2
Please enjoy my site and feel free to drop me a line anytime! I look forward to connecting with you soon and remind you that when you say 'YES!' to life, life says 'YES!' to you!
