Scottish duo The Jellyman's Daughter lands squarely in the middle of a strange crossroads between bluegrass, post-rock, folk and the good kind of pop. Emily and Graham strive for originality in their songwriting, incorporating cello, guitar and mandolin in their songs. The duo share a unique affinity in their vocal harmonies, while Graham's cello is "percussive as a drum, grounded as a bass or sweet as a fiddle" (Alan Morrison, The Herald)

After making each other’s acquaintance in the inspiring setting of Edinburgh, Emily and Graham soon found a love for playing music with each other, staying up into the wee hours making home recordings.

Having busked the streets of their home city during the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, they created quite an impact when they made their debut at Glasgow’s Celtic Connections festival. When in­-demand playing partners Emily Kelly and Graham Coe released their full­-length album, it won a huge amount of radio exposure, and reviewers unanimously agreed that something totally appealing had come on to the scene. The Sunday Herald (Scotland) made it one of their Top Albums of The Year while Maverick magazine described them as “fascinating” and said they demonstrated “originality by the bucket­load”. “Heartily recommended” by Folking.com, Acoustic magazine told readers they “kick up a heck of a storm,” while The Daily Express called the duo “a match made in heaven”.

They started 2015 as they meant to go on, winning even more praise following bigger­-exposure live performances, including a nomination for Best Acoustic Act in the Scottish Alternative Music Awards, and spreading their wings much further afield, spending a month gigging around Germany, The Netherlands and Denmark. After a successful appearance at Folk Alliance International in Kansas City early in the year, Emily and Graham spent 2016 gigging extensively, including a tour of Canada in September. In 2017, after a return visit to Folk Alliance in February with an official showcase, they have been focusing on putting the finishing touches on their second album, while 2018 will see them release the album and tour the UK, Europe, USA and Canada, sustaining the momentum that has earned them exceptional praise so far.
