Kelly Meashey is a jazz vocalist living in Philadelphia, PA. Kelly moved to Philadelphia leaving behind her PA Dutch roots and love of nature to study Music Therapy and play classical flute at Temple University. Never in her wildest dreams would she be singing professionally, but, a supportive professor got her a gig and the singing bug hit. Kelly uses her voice like an instrumentalist creating unique vocal and rhythmic textures in a wide range of styles from Be Bop to R & B. She gives uncompromising attention to the meaning and emotion of a song never playing it safe and letting the music take her where it needs to go. She is full of surprises as she never repeats a phrase quite the same way. Kelly is willing to express raw emotion and to lose herself in the music.
Joining Kelly will be Dave Posmontier, piano, Dylan Taylor, upright bass and Doug Hirlinger, drums.

Now in its 11th year at the Cheltenham Center for the arts, Jazz Bridge is a non-profit arts organization serving a need no one else is addressing in the Philadelphia area: responding to local jazz and blues artists in times of need. Proceeds from the neighborhood concert series go to help local jazz musicians in personal or professional crisis. Concerts feature prominent jazz and blues musicians during an hour and a half long program which includes a Q&A with the artists and light refreshments. Check out our website to learn more about each performer.
