Hailing from the west of Ireland, Maria Kelly is an indie-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, Maria quickly became known for her heart-wrenching live performances, unassuming nature, and a 'pin-drop' vocal that is impossible to ignore.
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 also toured with Paul Noonan.
 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.
Maria has previously received praise from various online publications including Consequence of Sound, Earmilk, Wonderland, Mahogany, The Line of Best Fit and Radio X. She has also been featured on Spotify’s New Music Friday, Your Coffee Break and Fresh Folk playlists to name but a few.
