Kellie Knight and the Daze
Kellie Knight and the Daze are a seven-piece fusion of New Soul, Funk and Jazz improvisation, fronted by powerhouse vocalist, Kellie Knight, this is music delivered with a conscious lyric, deep groove and raw emotive and soulful insistence.
Fronted by the impassioned powerhouse voice of Byron Bay’s ‘Sweetheart of Soul’ Kellie Knight, the “Daze” weave and meander through the solid beat with mighty improvisation and then hone a catchy almost-pop chorus line.
Fans of Sharon Jones and the Dapkings or Amy Winehouse will enjoy the energy of this live show with the lively banter amongst the musicians, whilst appreciators of singers such as Adele or Aretha will be swayed by Kellie Knights unique blend of full strength belting and subtle jazz sensibility.
From where did they come?
