Biography

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 complemented 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, CFMU, and CJSW.  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. In the past year, she had the chance to open for two-time Grammy-winner Gregory Porter, and also completed a Western Canada concert theatre tour with special guest 35-time award-winning saxophonist Eli Bennett from Vancouver. She is set to release her sophomore album late in 2017. 

With an honesty and warmth that set her apart, Doty is an artist to watch for 2017 and beyond.
