Mark Kelly ("the hairy one") is a UK/CH singer, songwriter, stage monster and general lunatic.
After being part of "The Passengers" and "Innacrisis" he 's now fronting himself as "Mark Kelly".
He started out as a bass player (that’s where the groove comes from) then around 20 he picked up a guitar a year later decided to try and warble some vocals out so pen went to paper.
He's been in Switzerland for over 10 years, won the "Orange new talent tour contest 2009" and opened up for "Duffy" and then due to his killer performance was asked to stand in to replace the German star "Ayo". He won the “Best male performance 2009” at the crazy English “Balcony TV”. He has also opened for Nneka, an up coming Nigerian /German star.
Now he is recording his first solo album making sessions between New York and Switzerland the launch date is expected for spring 2011. Meanwhile he is doing lots of gigs around Europe surprising the audience with his is amazing voice. This summer he is playing at some of the most important festivals in Switzerland, such as Montreux Jazz Festival and Paleo in Nyon.
Another artist by the name of Mark Kelly is the keyboardist of the progressive rock band, Marillion. He joined the band in 1981 until now.
