“Kellylee Evans is a perfect example of musical honesty in its purest form.” - The WholeNote

Born in Toronto to Jamaican parents, singer/songwriter Kellylee Evans is an excitingly gifted jazz and soul vocalist who effortlessly incorporates elements of hip-hop and even world beat. Although most performers would kill just to sound like a cross between Sarah Vaughan and Norah Jones, Kellylee is equally compelling as a songwriter. Her self-penned debut CD, 2006’s "Fight or Flight?," was Juno nominated. "The Good Girl," a sophisticated follow-up, was a mix of everything from smooth urban jazz to reggae-dub. Then came her spectacular tribute to Nina Simone, which won her a Juno in 2011. The woman with the beautiful alto that JazzTimes calls a “stunning, crystalline voice” is touring in support of her newest CD, "I Remember When," featuring reworked versions of songs by Eminem, Kanye West and Gladys Knight. The ever-talented Evans has matured into one of the most exciting performers on the Canadian scene.
