Shaun Kelly summer shows

Let Love Shine is the brand new single from West Midlands Shaun Kelly & The Returned Gifts. The band played live on BBC London a few weeks ago and will be releasing a brand new single in April.

Taken from his current album The Boy on the Bench and released via Sleep Now Records

He plays the following live dates this summer…

4th May Wild Festivals Lincolnshire Weekender 14th June Actress and Bishop Birmingham 6th July Halesowen Carnival 12 th July ClapTrap Showcase Stourbridge 24th August Wild Festivals North Wales Weekender 31st August Wild Festivals Oxford Weekender

It’s fair to say Shaun Kelly has been around the block in his bizarre career.

From being asked to collaborate with music legend Andy Taylor of Duran Duran to his port-a-loo meeting with madcap 60s legend Arthur Brown musing on how to apply makeup before a gig, to providing the musical entertainment for his sister in law’s night on “Come Dine with Me”. Which she won.

Leading this collective of musicians emerging from the ashes of the indie B-town scene in the heart of the UK. The band have been collaborating on new sounds that mix elements of west coast guitar pop with classic British melodic agendas… along with anything else that springs to mind.

The debut single ‘Debt of silence’ came from nowhere and instantly made single of the week on the James Whale Radio Show.

Next came national coverage on BBC radio for the next releases as well as another tune being showcased on the ground breaking TV series “Civilisations” on BBC1.

The debut LP “the boy on the bench” is out now and has been highly praised in the UK music press as well as catching the ear of a host of influential websites and bloggers.

“An album that consistently delivers on all fronts” Rock n Reel magazine

“…a great album on all levels, great songs, great musical vision, infectious, memorable and great fun. Dancing About Architecture

“The Boy On The Bench is a richly diverse, collision of styles and substance, chock full of foot tappers and sing-a-longs. Together, it makes up a damn fine debut by Shaun Kelly & The Returned Gifts.” Slap Magazine
