Juno Award winner Kellylee Evans is going to be shaking it up in “The Tick” at our next “Music on Main” show: Saturday, October 19, 8PM, at Music On Main, 5541 Manotick Main Street (Manotick United Church). As usual, I can reserve for you. With minimal advertising, tickets are already selling well. If you want to make it a date night, Babbos Cuccina, The Vault and The Mill Tavern offer discounts to concertgoers. Here’s some info. Hope to see you if it works for you.
Her Voice: “a stunning crystalline voice, both powerful and emotive” The Yukon Arts Centre
Her Most Recent CD, “Come On”: From the stirring soul-stomper “Come On” - which combines an effervescent Motown feel with traces of psychedelia – and the funky groove-a-liciousness of “Hands Up” to the string-and-horn-spiced magnetism of “Know His Worth,” the 10 songs of Come On find Kellylee at her most magically potent. Produced and co-written by Eric Legnini (Stefano Di Battista), this is post-romantic soul at its finest; a project of strong vision and great execution that signals the return of Kellylee Evans as a bold explorer and interpreter. It only gets better when you experience her live, in her element. Kellylee Evans’ time is nigh, and Come On is just the catalyst to get her there.
