Ellen Doty is a soulful Canadian vocalist and songwriter with a world-class voice. Her music is rooted in jazz, yet seamlessly incorporates elements of other genres including folk and pop. A true storyteller whose works are as intimate and as personal as their handwritten lyrics, Ellen’s immense talent for songwriting is only complementeded by her stunning vocals. Rich, sultry, and sweet, Ellen’s voice draws listeners in and takes them on an unforgettable journey.
2014 was a huge success for Ellen as she released her much-anticipated first full album “Gold” in May, which broke the top ten on several jazz charts in Canada including CFBX and CFMU. After an overwhelming response to her crowd-funding campaign, Ellen embarked on a thirty city, fourty-six stop tour which kicked off in Sydney, Nova Scotia and ended in Victoria, BC. Hot on the heels of her critically-acclaimed debut album, Ellen enchanted audiences across the country with show-stopping performances. And 2015 was even bigger as Ellen released her sophomore album and then toured internationally, returning to New York City for a show with acclaimed jazz drummer David Mancini. Her first single from the album “Just So You Know” was released March 30th.
With an honesty and warmth that sets her apart, Ellen Doty is an emerging Canadian talent who is clearly one to watch for 2016 and beyond.
