WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING!
"I've had the pleasure of working with some of the greatest artists on the planet over my 35 plus years in the music business. Kelly Mittleman, is one of the most versatile and talented I've ever come across. Not only was she right at home working on a Diana Ross project, doing a multitude of vocal parts, but when it comes to straight-ahead jazz, she is top shelf. She destined to become a household name.". Nile Rodgers
"When Kelly sings she pulls me right into the song with her. She is uniquely comfortable singing both Jazz and Pop Standards and also writes songs that seem as timeless as the classics". Steve Tyrell
"I had the pleasure to attend Kelly Mittleman's performance at Catalina Bar & Grill in LA a few months ago. I was very impressed with her talent, whether singing her original songs or covers. She gave the audience a warm sense of intimacy and her joy of sharing the stage with her great band was infectious. There is no doubt in my mind she is destined to be a major force in the jazz musical scene". Philippe Saisse, Recording Artist, composer, producer, 2010 Grammy Nominee
"Kelly Mittleman proves that she has what it takes to make it to the “top of the heap” and, that’s exactly where she appears to be headed." Lynn DiMenna, Cabaret Scenes Magazine
"Kelly Mittleman overwhelmingly shows a readiness for prime time!" Chris J. Walker, L.A. Jazz Scene
"Kelly Mittleman isn’t a name that rings a lot of bells – at least not yet. But her performance at Catalina Bar & Grill suggested that we’ll be hearing a lot more from this intriguing artist – both as a performer and as a songwriter." Don Heckman, Los Angeles Times
Kelly was a finalist of over 5000 entrants in the Today Show Superstar Contest.
