Dividing her time between Toronto, ON and Nashville, TN, Canadian Songstress Jadea Kelly is very familiar with life on the road. This fall she’ll embark on a tour with Winnipeg’s Sweet Alibi and share songs from her compelling and honest third studio record, Love & Lust. The album was released to rave reviews on June 3, 2016 via her own label Darth Jadea Music (distributed by Fontana North). The new record includes the CBC Radio 2 lauded track Make It Easy and Exclaim declares it to be “Kelly’s finest work yet.” Check out the brand new LIVE video of her track Good Girl (co-written w/ Robyn Dell’Unto and Stew Crookes), captured at her sold-out Toronto show at The Drake. Tour details listed below and at: www.darthjadea.com.
Love & Lust features 11 beautifully crafted and thoughtfully executed songs. “Beauty” in particular is perhaps the most delicate and forgiving of songs on this album and co-written with Canadian artist Peter Katz. The song was chosen to accompany an incredible tribute video to celebrate Terry Fox, Day 11 of the Paralympics opening montage and has amassed over 383K views on Facebook. Be sure to watch it here.
Prior to the release of Love & Lust, Jadea Kelly headed into Union Sound Company to capture a collection of live performances for the new material. Released throughout the summer months – you can now check out the whole collection. Sit back and enjoy the stunning videos here:
Jadea Kelly - raised in Whitby, ON – is known most prominently for her vocal work with JUNO Award-winning Canadian folk artist Catherine MacLellan, as well as JUNO Award-winning Canadian metal band Protest the Hero. She has toured across Canada countless times performing at a number of Canadian festivals, such as the Calgary Folk Festival, Edmonton’s Interstellar Rodeo, Riverfest with Blue Rodeo, Peterborough Folk Festival, Shelter Valley, Stuart MacLean’s Vinyl Cafe, Stewart Park Folk Festival and Wild Mountain Music Festival. She has toured throughout the United States supporting Canadian duo Whitehorse as well as across Canada with Royal Wood & Catherine MacLellan.
