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.
