Jadea Kelly

(Whitby, ON) 

Jadea Kelly is one of those rare artists whose music can transport you, her lilting voice floating between tender and soaring, transforming your office cubicle into a raft on the river, or your car in gridlock into a serene prairie landscape. Her deft songcraft offers a pop sensibility with a raw heart far beyond her years—as much murder ballad as love song—enhanced by timeless arrangements. Youthful, exuberant and clearly in love with making music, Kelly’s live performances are transcendent, coupling thoughtful songwriting with atmospheric instrumentation on ambient guitars, haunting organ, synth bass and delayed string arrangements and unique twists and turns of phrase, engulfing you within the alchemy of voice, words and the generous openness of her story telling.
