Biography

Kelli Ali (b. Kelli Dayton, 30 Jun 1974, in England), is a singer-songwriter, first well known for her distinctive vocals, as lead singer, on Sneaker Pimps’ ‘Becoming X’ / 6 Underground. After her ‘98 dismissal from the band, Kelli changed her name from Dayton to Ali & embarked on a solo career. In 2000, she signed a recording deal with One Little Indian, to embark on a diverse / adventurous career, in which she’s explored numerous genre, in her endeavours to create original songs & music.

Kelli’s first independent album, a collection of dark modern dream folk songs, was “Rocking Horse” (Nov ‘08, DIY & One Little Indian). It was produced by Max Richter (composer of “The Blue Notebooks” & “Memoryhouse” / producer of Vashti Bunyan’s “Memoryhouse”) & has received critical acclaim.

In 2009, Kelli recorded and produced her Butterfly album with her partner Metso.
Butterfly is an acoustic album which came about through Kelli’s desire to capture the songs from her Rocking Horse album in their metamorphosis as she and her band reworked the songs for the live stage show. This is Kelli’s second independent release which is sold through her website and online.

Her earlier solo albums, Tigermouth and Psychic Cat saw Kelli move from the trip-hop influences of her first successful band Sneaker Pimps, to a more dreampop electronic sound.
