August 15th at 7:00pm – Kellylee Evans will perform
Kellylee Evans, a Juno winning soul pop vocalist, makes her inevitable return to the Old Town Hall Concert Series this summer. When Kellylee last visited the Island in 2012, she was riding high on a blossoming career and a Juno Award for Vocal Jazz Album of the Year for her album Nina.
Kellylee’s career was put on hold the following year, however, when she was struck by lightning while washing the dishes in her Ottawa home.
Following a years-long recovery, Kellylee returned to singing to release her fifth album, Come On, in Canada in October 2017. This funky Motown album was nominated for the 2018 Juno Award for Vocal Jazz Album of the Year.
A sensitive, honest, and – evidently – resilient performer, Kellylee Evans’ rich, soulful voice and brilliant lyrics embrace all forms of music – soul, jazz, pop, country, hip hop and classical.
