The voice of Ottawa jazz singer Kellylee Evans is considered one of the most beautiful of her generation. She won the 2011 Juno for best Vocal Album for Nina, her tribute to the works of Nina Simone.

Since the release of her latest album I Remember When, Kellylee has been on an intense tour schedule that includes the Paris Olympia, as well as dates in Whitehorse, Berlin and Istanbul over the next month. She brings jazz to all audiences by featuring songs by the likes of Eminem, John Legend and Kanye West.

La chanteuse de jazz Kellylee Evans est considérée comme l'une des plus belles voix de sa génération. Après un album hommage à Nina Simone encensé par la critique en 2010, elle nous présente I Remember when son nouvel opus. Capable de reprendre des airs signés Eminem, John Legend ou Kanye West et de les amener dans son monde jazz, soul, hip hop, et même d'y ajouter quelques classiques d'hier (Gladys Knight) et d'adapter le décalé « And So We Dance » (« Alors on danse » dans la V.O. signée Stromae).
