Our first BobCat of 2013 is one worth waiting for.
When you hear Jadea Kelly sing, you'll find it a little hard to imagine her singing and playing with metal band Protest the Hero. When she struck out on her own, she found a voice that some have called a "hushed Loretta Lynn", and a style of writing that is intimate and powerful.
Jadea tours internationally, across Canada and in the United States, opening for the likes of Ramblin' Jack Elliott and Catherine MacLellan. In 2012 she was featured on Stuart McLean's VINYL CAFE and recorded live by CBC at the Stewart Park Folk Festival in 2010. She also performed at Yonge & Dundas Square and the Sudbury Northern Lights Festival in 2012, as well as a couple of residencies at the Elmdale House (RIP [?] ). She is a captivating performer and you'll be glad to have seen her here, before the great wide world discovers her talents.
