About Kelli

From The Stone Pony in Asbury Park, to hospitalized patients in New York and beyond - Kelli Bruno enjoys entertaining audiences of all kinds. 

Kelli is one of those does-a-little-bit-of-everything musicians — and people! A proud New Jersey native, she grew up playing soccer, softball, basketball, lacrosse - and spent the summers "down the shore" in Seaside Park. Music became a focus during her college years and that's when Kelli discovered she was a songwriter. 


The 28-year-old songwriter fell in love with music during her first piano lesson at the age of five. She has been involved in choirs, orchestras, bands, and handbell groups which have inspired her infatuation with instruments. Kelli's musical wheelhouse includes voice, piano, guitar, ukulele, violin, handbells, harmonica, organ, cello ... and that list

continues to grow. 

Kelli holds BA degrees in English (Film/Media Studies) and Music from Bucknell University. She lives in Manhattan and works for the non profit Musicians On Call. She performs regularly in New Jersey and New York City so stay tuned for upcoming shows! 

She released her debut album, Nomahegan in November, 2018.
