The Kelly Line is a father/son songwriting duo - Mike (father) and Ben (son) write the songs which Ben performs, either as a solo acoustic act or as part of a full band.

The sound ranges from stripped back acoustic music (For example, I Never Promised You Flowers) to driven Folk-Punk (For example, Sure As Hell Not Through).

Connor (Lead Guitar), Jack (Bass), and Iestyn (Drums) complete the full band line up.

People often ask us how it works - writing songs with your dad/son.

To be honest, we don’t really think of it like that. We’re just songwriting partners who enjoy sharing a beer - which Mike (Dad) always buys!

The original concept was to see what kind of music just the two of us could make together, but has since evolved to include fellow musicians performing in a wide range of styles.

The Kelly Line can be traced back to Connemara where, way back in 1897, Albert Kelly was born. A few years later, while no more than a boy, he ran away to sea. He had many fantastic adventures before finally settling in Liverpool and raising a family. We’re his blood line and we’re just continuing the story.
