Ellen Doty is a soulful Canadian vocalist and songwriter with a world-class voice. Her music incorporates everything from jazz to soul, folk, pop and indie music: a sound that is uniquely hers. A true storyteller whose works are as intimate and as personal as their handwritten lyrics, Ellen’s immense talent for songwriting is only complemented by her stunning vocals. Originally from Okotoks, AB, she currently makes her home in Edmonton.
Doty is signed to Toronto-based label Alma Records and to Tokyo-based label Impartmaint Records. Her latest album “Come Fall” came out on Universal Music in Canada, debuting at #1 on the iTunes Jazz Chart. The album has received rave reviews from fans and media alike: “By pushing her artistic boundaries and refusing to be placed in a box, Doty achieved musical brilliance that sets her apart from her peers. Doty’s sophomore album clearly proves her voice knows no limits. But it is perhaps her modesty and the purity of her intent to create good music that continues to define her as a blossoming Canadian artist.” – Beatroute Magazine.
Doty has toured extensively across Canada, and recently completed her second tour in Japan with a headline performance at the Tokyo Jazz Festival. She will be joined by talented pianist Devin Hart.
