I was stopped dead in my tracks the first time I came across Dublin based artist Maria Kelly and her gorgeous track 'Before It Has Begun'. Up late, working on Aimless Skylarking submissions, and likely with a few pints in me, I wasn't quite prepared for her voice, a delicate instrument piercing the night, cutting through the boozy haze. I had to hear more. However, very little was found (1 track on YouTube), but what I did find stunned me. Now she's back with a new track and some live dates on the calendar. Instead of filling up this space with more empty superlatives about Maria Kelly, find 'Black & Blue' below, but be prepared to have your breath taken away.
