Kellie Knight

Multi award-winning songstress, Kellie Knight and her 7-piece jazz/funk ensemble, The Daze are on the rise in Australia’s fast-growing neo-soul movement.

Picking up awards for four of the five tracks from debut EP, ‘Twisted’, the northern New South Wales outfit have played their gangsta funk, soul groove ‘n’ smooth jazz on many of Australia’s world-renowned festival stages, including Bluesfest, the Adelaide Fringe, Port Fairy and Woodford Folk festivals.

“Kellie Knight, where have you been all my life? What a spectacular voice” Murray Burns (Mi-Sex).

And the Australian music industry agrees, awarding the band Best Jazz song, Best Urban/Funk song, Best World/Reggae and Best World Music song, as well as nominating Knight as Female Vocalist of the Year at the NCEIA Music Awards.

Brought up on a healthy diet of pop vinyl, Knight discovered jazz in her early twenties, both of which can be heard through her accessible lyrics, well-crafted pop hooks and potent blend of whisky-smoke jazz subtlety and full-power soul vocal.

Knight’s devotion to music runs deep with formal training beginning at just 11 and later, extensive travels in pursuit of honing her craft with significant stints in San Francisco, the Caribbean and Varnasi, India, where she studied under the tutelage of one of the country’s top University vocal lecturers.

In a bid to foster a strong neo-soul scene in Australia, Knight founded popular blog neosoul.com.au and, together with Blue King Brown frontwoman, Nattali Rize, officially represents the Northern Rivers Conservatorium of Music for its silver jubilee.

“The highlight of my day. Awesome tunes.” Samantha Morris (Editor, Blank Gold Coast)
