I’m Craig Kelly
… a musician based in Melbourne Australia, originally from Adelaide. I play electric bass, double bass, and guitar, and like most people in the music industry I wear several hats (literally and figuratively):
- as a live and studio musician, playing original music and covers, including tribute shows, corporate events and weddings.
- producing music for commercial use.
- teaching bass and guitar, in person in Melbourne or via skype (use the form below for enquiries).
- working for Heartstop Music, a company specialising in artist management, booking, publicity and production, including The Melbourne Folk Club every Wednesday at The Bella Union, Carlton.
Self taught but university trained, I’m a fast learner and combine my ability to play by ear with the theoretical rigour of a jazz education (Elder Conservatorium, Adelaide Uni), always being mindful of not letting the theory get in the way of a good groove! I especially love to play with singer-songwriters across the pop/roots/folk/alt-country genres and like most bass players love playing soul/funk/rnb.
With great gear, an even better attitude, I’m professional and reliable and available to fill in for your next gig or record your next album. Contact me below:
