Keli Holiday is from the mind of a man living off of nothing but new order records, beer, sleepless nights and the sheer excitement and love of exploring an unknown city named New York. This project was created by Adam Hyde (one half of multi ARIA award winning, 10x platinum selling Australian eclectic electronic duo Peking Duk) who had come off the back of a 2 month North American tour with back to back dates. He was told he had time for a holiday when he got home but instead of flying to a beach somewhere he decided to use an old guitar he had sitting in his bedroom to create something special. 12 tracks in 4 weeks he sheepishly showed his best friend - Thomas Stell aka Golden features. Tom shared the project with Adams' long-time idol that he'd never met - KIM from the iconic duo The Presets. KIM and Adam tightened up the dusty recordings and made it shine. Two years later and the marriage of longing for that holiday he'll never get back mixed with the strumming of that dusty old guitar birthed a love child named Keli Holiday.

I am a musician from Melbourne, Victoria. I am based in St Albans. I play keyboards, guitar and bass guitar, and I also sing and write my own material. My primary instrument is keyboards. I play music because I like it.
The majority of my material is honest and unique, encompassing the need to communicate and connect with other human beings on an emotional level. My songs are catchy, they cover topics that most typical musicians wouldn’t cover and most of all they are unique and refreshing.

1 in 5 people in Australia are living with a disability. From a survey Tibi Access (creators of Groove Tunes) conducted in 2018, people living with a disability expressed their love of attending live music events, however fear and lack of access are commonly expressed as reasons that stop them from going. We hope Groove Tunes not only creates an opportunity to attend a live music event but encourages the broader music industry to make live music more inclusive for everyone.
