Biography

Barbrah Kelley is a singer, songwriter, lyricist and arranger. Over the years she has worked as a session singer; recording commercials, voice-overs, demos for other artist and touring with Top-40 bands and local Gospel groups.

She collaborated on a single for the famous group 'The Gap Band' entitled “I’m Dreaming”, and co-wrote “We Bow Down” for Perry Jenkins and The Lord’s Mercenaries; a local group from her hometown. Her voice can be heard on Jersey Style Films Production movie soundtrack “The Cage”- singing “You Do Nothing For Me” which she also co-wrote with her husband Brian J Kelley.

Barbrah decided it was time that she comes to the forefront to showcase herself.
"Even though I'm a music lover" she said, "when I begin to write I tend to stay away from the radio, I don't want to be influenced by what's already playing, and don't want to be a carbon copy."

Her style of music is for all age groups, and crosses into Smooth Jazz, Urban/R&B, Contemporary, and Inspirational Genres without losing its message; which is to inspire and encourage the listener. It is the Good News of Gospel. "I believe my style of music will spark a new 'genre' called 'Smooth Worship'.
