Liz Kelley is a human vocalist, guitarist, producer, music technologist and DIY enthusiast. Her recent work includes remote recording in her home studio, touring with her previous project Oracle Blue, voice acting for a video game, volunteer composition for a neuroscience firm, and sound design in generative music technology.
During her time in college she received a DownBeat Student Music Award, performed at Montreux, Umbria and Vienne jazz festivals in Europe, and shared the university stage with artists such as Victor Wooten, Jeff Coffin & Steve Bailey. Occasions of note since entering the professional sphere include an opening set for Nate Smith, an opening set for Makaya McCraven, multiple opening performances for Lalah Hathaway, endorsements from Traveler Guitar and Aston Microphones, a performance at NAMM 2020 and 2022, a European tour, and a recent listing on DownBeat's "What to Stream This Week".
Between independently touring, producing, managing, and even merchandise manufacturing, her fingerprints can be seen on each thoughtful step of her creative process. Kelley spent the summer of 2022 touring with her band Oracle Blue from LA to NYC then Nantucket to Key West, and has been working on her debut solo record with her long time friend and collaborator, Justin Trout.
"soulful swagger, moody vocals and timeless songwriting with a bit of an edge."

"If art is a reflection of current attitudes and issues, then Herbal Tea serves as a wonderful reminder of how to prioritize self-care in an increasingly connected world. Bubbly and jazzy, it puts forward a very necessary mantra: just sip tea and let it be."
-Piper Anderson, Sounds So Beautiful
