Jelly Cleaver is a guitarist, producer and singer-songwriter based in South London. With an eclectic taste in music, Jelly is heavily involved in both the Jazz and DIY/punk scenes in London. She's also an activist, and a strain of political dissent runs through her music. Her latest single 'VI II V' has been premiered on Moses Boyd's show on BBC1xtra, as well as being played on Jazz FM and Worldwide FM. Through Tomorrow’s Warriors, an organisation whose alumni include Shabaka Hutchings, Ezra Collective and Nubya Garcia, she met the other musicians in her band, many of whom are talented composers and band leaders in their own right.
"I’ve been listening to VI II V on repeat... Jelly has a totally unique way of threading Jazz, folk and psychedelic influences"
