Juno winning soul pop vocalist Kellylee Evans 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. Her performance was an audience favourite and a sell out show, and we were already making plans to have her return to our Series.
Those plans and Kellylee’s career were 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 with enormous support from her friends, 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.
We are overjoyed to welcome Kellylee Evans back to Hilton Beach this summer for her long-overdue encore performance!
