SHORTLISTED FOR THE AMERICANA MUSIC PRIZE 2018

About

"She's known for having an extraordinarily rare voice" - CLARE BOWDITCH


Shortlisted for the Americana Music Prize in 2018, Kelly Brouhaha’s brand of americana soul is as real as it gets. The South Australian songwriter & multi-instrumentalist spends most of the year around a campfire, travelling in her 1992 Toyota Hiace Van called “Pamela Vanderson”.

Her debut album “40,000 Star Hotel” tells the story after leaving her marriage and mortgage behind in the pursuit of happiness. The single of the same name, co-written with Aleyce Simmonds is a big, ballsy, freedom-esque blues which captures the heart of the australian landscape and the lure of off-grid living.

Choosing to pursue the road less travelled after learning of her father’s althzeimers diagnosis - this album captures heartbreak and grief in a way that leaves you breathless. A diverse first offering from an artist you absolutely need to hear.

You cannot put her unique style into a box.
From big blues, to soulful country, it is real and raw and vulnerable.

Debut Album Out June 7, 2019


"it's just so much fun, that girls got amazing pipes, she sounds like Amy Whinehouse - but with more of a soulful edge as opposed to a jazz hook"NKECHI ANELE - TRIPLE J ROOTS AND ALL

"The Brouhaha has a gorgeous, powerful, dare-we-say Adele-esque voice, and her new song Don’t Have To Write it Down is a fine vehicle for it" - RIP IT UP

 

"Kelly Brouhaha wears many skins, and her Brouhaha outfit is a refreshing burst of acoustic folk. Filtering her glossy pipes through pure UV, Kelly Brouhaha’s rhythmic guitars brilliantly shine beneath her cascading vocals. Brouhaha champions harmonies, and on her Don’t Have To Write It Down album, she also champions the perfect glass half-full persona." - THE MUSIC


“…Bright, bubbly and exploding with personality, Kelly Brouhaha is a charming and talented young lady, determined to bring a smile to the face of all who come into contact with her. And she’s succeeding everystep of the way!” – FRINGE BENEFITS

“Get some Brouhaha in your lives people, this gal is testament to our local talent, an infectious and inspiring favourite!!…”
THE GILBERT ST HOTEL
