Jazz and Swing have played a central role in Anne Marie’s musical career.  Here she showcases a taste of her favourites with some of her favourite musicians

Untitled design.jpg

A musical career that began in smoky venues with rock bands refining into eclectic musical alliances, Smoked Oak was Anne Marie’s first official band, still holding a special place in her heart.  Independent  projects and collaborations with Johnny Kelleher continue to develop her creative drive

In collaboration with Johnny Kelleher

Johnny Kellegher.jpg

Johnny Kelleher is a multi-instrumentalist musician, composer and arranger.  A creator of atmospheric scores and soundscapes for film, he has recently returned from LA where he studied with many of the leading names in Jazz and Film Score Composition.  He and Anne Marie have enjoyed a musical partnership spanning over 15 years, seeing them work together on film, festivals, exhibitions, commercial projects, and their own independent musical ventures.

He explored and expanded the original theme of Anne Marie Kelly’s “Leaf will Fall”, bringing it into a full orchestral arrangement which was used as part of the “Virgin Mother Whore…Woman” Exhibition and as part of the musical story of “God Given Opportunity”.

In earlier collaborations he overlaid and arranged “If you were dead”, bringing the modern and the ancient into a strange and moving alignment.  Listen to it here:
