Jelly Cleaver is a guitarist, producer and singer-songwriter based in South London and has been called ‘one to watch for sure’ by BBC 6 Music's Gilles Peterson. She's received the Steve Reid Innovation Award, is a Serious Take Five artist, and was nominated for an Ivors Composer Award. With an eclectic taste in music, Jelly is heavily involved in both the jazz and DIY/post-punk scenes in London. She's also an activist, and a strain of political dissent runs through her music.
Alongside her solo project she also leads disco/jazz seven-piece All Day Breakfast Cafe and spiritual jazz ensemble The Forever Presence.
