Hailing from the west of Ireland, Maria Kelly is an alternative-folk artist whose music is layered with deeply personal and poignant experiences.

In 2015, Maria began working with producer Matt Harris (VETA, HAVVK, Sive), leading to a number of critically acclaimed releases such as 'Stitches' and 'Torn Into Two'. Accompanied by shows across Europe supporting the likes of James Vincent McMorrow, KT Tunstall and Paul Noonan (Bell X1), Maria quickly became known for her heart-wrenching live performances, unassuming nature, and a 'pin-drop' vocal that is impossible to ignore. Maria's work has continued to gain momentum internationally, rallying support from Mahogany, Consequence of Sound and The Line Of Best Fit along the way.
After laying a foundation in the Irish music scene, Maria relocated to Berlin in June of last year, a life-changing move which inspired her four-track EP, ‘notes to self’. In the lead up to the release in December 2018, Maria joined All The Luck In The World on a month long European tour, followed by her debut TV appearance on Other Voices. Maria finished up the year supporting Villagers at two sold out shows in Ireland, and is currently touring with Paul Noonan, where she is testing out some new material.

With her return to Ireland, Maria celebrates the release of her new track 'i leave early' with her first headline show in nearly two years on November 21st in the Sound House, Dublin.
'i leave early' is out now on VETA.
