Kellylee Evans - Greenlight Canadian New
Kellylee Evans - Greenlight Canadian New
Juno Award winning singer and composer Kellylee offers a distinctly recognizable sound on her brand new, five-song EP, GREENLIGHT.
It is the sound of resilience.

While we've all been in survivor mode for the better part of the pandemic, it's been particularly trying for the talented Ottawa-based jazz ingenue: Kellylee was still in the throes of recuperating - literally - from a bizarre accident where she was struck by lightning. Just as she was getting back into her groove in March 2020 - even performing a concert in Paris, France just before COVID-19 shut down the world.

But that didn't stop her, nor her creativity. With the assistance of co-producer, multi-instrumentalist and backing vocalist Michael Shand, drummer Ian Wright, and bass player Mark Godfrey, Kellylee has magically woven her first tapestry of new music since 2015's Come On, her inspired versatility delivering raw connective emotion connectivity on such gems as the jazzy mental health anthem "Not Today," the soulful "Green Light" and the revealing "Everything."

Gephilte: A SoCalled Experiment in Yiddish Funk
SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 6, 2022 AT 4 PM – 6:30 PM
Venue: Les Lye Studio Theatre

SoCalled (Josh Dolgin), “the mad wizard of Yiddish Hip-Hop”, goes back to his roots on this ground-breaking, heartbreaking program, SoCalled sings Yiddish.
The program presents songs from the Yiddish Theatre, Hassidic melodies, Klezmer, folksong, songs from the Holocaust, from Israel, and even so*me original new songs. Through song, so much history and culture can be exposed and given new life. The program is funny, sad, beautiful, and dark with a diverse range of styles, colours, keys, modes and moods. The Yiddish revival is over, it’s the Yiddish era again; so let’s dig deep, let’s celebrate and explore the riches of this extraordinary culture.

JYDN Hill - s/t Canadian New
JYDN Hill - s/t Canadian
The laissez-faire attitudes and dark elements of Canada's cold capital have become symbolic and metaphorical to the artist known as JYDN HILL. Pronounced “Jayden Hill” - the multi-platinum writer, singer, and rapper utilizes nostalgic melodies and moody R&B that is part raw & uncut, and equal parts introspective. The result is a dark and revealing eclectic sound that defies norms. - DJ
