Six albums deep, Juno Award-winning jazz/soul vocalist Kellylee Evans has tackled everything from jazz to R&B and pop in such classics fight or flight?, Nina – her 2011 Juno-winning tribute to the legendary Nina Simone – and I Remember When. Her 2015 album, Come On, is a wonderfully refreshing album that comes on the heels of two nearly career ending accidents, including a freak lightning strike in her Ottawa kitchen. Evans was essentially unknown before becoming a runner-up of the 2004 Thelonious Monk Competition. Now, she offers views on love and loss in an alluringly rhythmic approach that is strictly forged by her jazz discipline. Kellylee Evans last performed in Victoria at TD JazzFest 2013. Experience this stylistic connoisseur live, in her element with Adam Cormier on drums, James Meger on bass, and Jonny Tobin on keys, at Hermann’s Jazz Club on March 22.
