Kells originally formed in 2001 with Virginie (vocals), Patrick(guitar), and Fabrice (keyboards). In 2004, the line-up was increased to 5 with Jérémie (Bass/flute) and Guillaume (Drums).
Combining various musical influences to create a sound combining pop, electronica, metal and classical music, Kells released their debut album "Gaia" in November 2005 through indie label AVFP.
Kells then began to perform first in their Rhone-Alpes region, then they took to the road to play all around France, Belgium and Luxemburg: playing 55 shows in less than a year, sharing the stage with famous French and international artists such as Apocalyptica, Epica, AqME, Magica, Paradise Lost, Eths, L'esprit du clan, Tripod, Deportivo, Dub Incorporation, Kaophonic tribu, etc…
In March 2007, Guillaume left the band. Jean "Jano" Padovan, became the new drummer, and Laurent replaced Jeremie as Kells' main bass player.
With this new line up, the band released their second album, "Lueurs", in early 2009 through Season Of Mist.
