KELLYLEE EVANS

A magnetic charm and an irresistible vocal style: Keelylee will seduce you! Jazz, soul and blues with a lighting installation from collective Scale.
"Try to put singer/songwriter Kellylee Evans into any one musical category, and marvel as she effortlessly soars over, under, dances around, or bursts through it. Her electric, eclectic vibe is a heady brew of jazz, soul, blues, Caribbean, and more." — Jazz Review

With a voice that conjures the spirit of Nina Simone, the soul of Gladys Knight, and the swagger of Janelle Monae, Evans presents an electrifying convergence of jazz, soul, R&B, and pop grooves that feels simultaneously fresh and retro. She posseses a dynamic, hip, and irresistibly original style and an exuberant personality that shines through in her passionate live performances. In 2011, Evans paid homage to the great Nina Simone. This album, simply called Nina introduced her to the French public, who became enchanted by her on-stage energy.And then a shock … literally. A freak lightning strike in her kitchen in 2013 was the start of a forced hiatus. She returned to the stage finally last year with a jubilant repertoire that is true to the tradition of Great Black Music, passionate about the sounds of today where dance and energy are key words. Her culture and her love of jazz are never far away, giving way to a definitely modern soul, to a completely assumed urban groove.
