Gilbert Kelly


I've been makng music since I was 16................I learned basic instruments before then. My parents and granparents play. I trained as a film-maker and actor and was kindly given access to The Royal College Of Music and Morley Opera School classes. I don't think there's much more to tell the world that isn't included in the music I make.
