Internationally acclaimed Juno Award-winning singer-songwriter Kellylee Evans has been making waves around the world with her energy-charged performances. She shares her inspirational journey of recovery and showcases the importance of self-care and finding your superpower. Evans’ keynotes resonate with anyone who has ever had their life interrupted by an illness or a setback.

With multiple albums to her name and a gruelling touring schedule, Evans experienced a life altering event in 2013 when she was struck by lightning while washing dishes in her home. For several months, she worked to regain her health, stamina, and balance, however, in 2015, she suffered a devastating concussion that left her unable to tour. For the next two years, this mother of three dedicated herself to recovery so she could get back to making and sharing her music.

In the summer of 2017, Evans triumphantly returned to the stage, and in 2018 her album Come On was nominated at the Juno Awards for Vocal Jazz Album of the Year. Evans released her long-awaited EP, Greenlight, in 2021 to rave reviews and in 2023, she was chosen as the grand prize recipient at the third annual Her Music Awards, hosted by The Socan Foundation. This program celebrates and supports female-identifying Canadian music creators on the verge of taking their creative careers to the next level.

When she’s not on tour, Evans takes the stage to share her story in hopes of inspiring others to find their superpower even in the face of adversity. Combining storytelling with music, she creates a memorable experience for all audiences.

Client reviews

  • In short, [our virtual event] was absolutely incredible. The feedback we heard during the session in the chat box was very positive, and I’ve heard some of our staff say how very much they appreciated the event and hearing Kellylee’s story. For me, she had me in tears at times and then laughing – I was enthralled.

    I am so glad we connected with her and had the opportunity to listen to her; she was amazing.

  • I am following up from last month’s conference and our excellent awards evening, to thank you again for your outstanding contributions as MC for the event. I have had many people comment on just how much they enjoyed the evening, and your work as MC in particular. You were engaging and entertaining, while remaining accurate and timely throughout. I enjoyed our interactions – you made me feel very comfortable on stage and it was fun – so it was wonderful to have you in charge of the event.  And of course, everyone loved your beautiful acapella performance at the end – a perfect way to finish the evening! Thanks so much for all these efforts.

  • I wanted to share how AMAZING Kellylee was. She is such a beautiful soul with a shining light within her. Her song moved us to pieces before she even started her story. We could not have picked a better speaker for our event. THANK YOU for always recommending the best speakers!
