About Kellylee Evans
With an unforgettable talent described by The Toronto Star as “marvelous” and JazzTimes as “a diamond–bright voice of unblemished beauty,” Juno Award winning Universal Music Recording artist Kellylee Evans continues to develop her inimitable sound for audiences around the world. A sensation in her native Canada and France, Evans, whom Jazz FM 91.1 describes as a “dynamic barefoot diva” and “arresting performer,” continues to successfully exceed her stylistic boundaries, expanding on her acclaimed fight or flight, Good Girl and award-winning Nina albums with a new project produced by Eric Legnini focusing on crossover ’60s revivalist soul that will feed her hungry fans. Already attracting the ears of such luminaries as Quincy Jones and Al Jarreau, and opening for George Benson, Tony Bennett and Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings — as well as headlining her own dates — the animated Thelonius Monk International Jazz Vocals Competition runner-up joyfully persists in thrilling her audiences with engaging concerts that The New Maine Times says earn “standing ovation after standing ovation.”
