HEADLINERS:

Canadian jazz artist and singer/songwriter Kellylee Evans is a captivating performer whose natural charm and improvisational jazz vocal style have taken her on an extraordinary journey through jazz, soul, pop and hip-hop styles. During the last decade, she has released five solo albums, earned two Juno Award nominations (winning “Best Jazz Vocal Album” for Nina, her tribute to Nina Simone), built large European and North American fan bases, and performed around the world. In addition to her own marquee performances, she has opened for major artists including John Legend, Dianne Reeves, Derek Trucks, Tony Bennett, George Benson and Willy Nelson.

Her recent I Remember When (Motéma Music, 2014) was met with critical acclaim for the way in which she puts her unique stamp on songs by hip-hop royalty Eminem, Dr. Dre, Snoop Dog, Kanye West, and others. Dynamic, hip and modern, her warm, soulful timbre reminds listeners of other true originals of her generation, including Amy Winehouse and Erykah Badu. Quincy Jones describes being “totally blown away” when he first heard Kellylee Evan in 2004, an experience that “stays permanently implanted “ in his mind. Kellylee has served as Artist-in-Residence at Carleton University during both the Winter 2017 and Fall 2017 academic terms, and this evening we are proud to host the North American release of her newest LP/CD “Come On”! ____________________________________

Dini won awards for her documentary work, which she wrote, produced and hosted for the now-global powerhouse media company.

While continuing to anchor the news, Dini helped develop and hosted Cityline, a still-popular lifestyle show. In 1990 a national platform enticed Dini to the CTV network, where The Dini Petty Show would begin an 11-year reign as a highly-rated national talk show. It remains the longest running talk show in Canadian television history.

Dini is the recipient of six Can Pro Awards for television excellence, four Gemini award nominations, the American NTPH International Award for best international program and has received many other recognitions four decades of public service. She’s even had a tulip named after her – The Triumph Tulip.

Her presentations engage men and women, with a combination of intelligence, authenticity and a finely honed sense of humor
