Review from Vinyl-Fan.de
Du liebst Stimmen wie die von Norah Jones oder Ricky Lee Jones? Dann hör dir diese kanadische Sängerin an: Ellen Doty - du wirst sie lieben! „Come Fall" ist erst ihr zweites Album, sie hat also noch ihre Karriere vor sich. Zur Freude der Fans audiophiler Klänge: diese LP ist auch hochwertig aufgenommen. Die Rezension der Vinyl-Ausgabe.
Calgary based vocalist and composer Ellen Doty brought her nation-wide tour to support her new album, Come Fall, to the Rex on March 23rd. She appeared along with Eric Haynes on keyboards and vocals, and Efa Eteroma on drums. Haynes added vocal accompanied on two of tracks off the new album. “My Favourite Sweater” was a hit with the audience.
By pushing her artistic boundaries and refusing to be placed in a box, Doty achieved musical brilliance that sets her apart from her peers. What she describes as “a mix of jazz, pop, soul, indie, and folk,” 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.
Soulful vocalist and songwriter, Ellen Doty, of Calgary, Alberta, is set to announce a collaboration with local shop Monogram Coffee in support of the Calgary Drop-In and Rehab Centre. Starting December 8th, $5 from every bag of “Favourite Sweater” coffee that is sold will be donated to the Calgary DI.
Toronto-based “music first” record label Alma Records, celebrating its 25th anniversary, is very proud to announce the signing of Canadian vocalist and songwriter Ellen Doty to an exclusive multi-release deal. Doty brings her unique blend of jazz, soul, folk and indie music to listeners around the world. Her much anticipated sophomore album Come Fall is set for worldwide release on March 2, 2018, with distribution in Canada by Universal Music Canada.
Style Q&A Feature for Avenue Magazine, Calgary: Jazz singer Ellen Doty grew up in Okotoks. She released her first album, Gold, in 2014 and plans to release a second album this fall. Like her music, which is a fusion of jazz, soul and pop, Doty’s personal style is a fusion of eras. Her high-waisted skirts and tucked blouses would fit in at a 1950s Parisian café, her bobbed hair and bangs at a 1920s speakeasy.
Calgary jazz artist Ellen Doty is heading off on a new musical direction with her latest album.
Either one. That’s a fair description of what you’ll see and hear should you head to one of Calgary jazz artist Ellen Doty’s shows on her upcoming prairie tour, which kicks off Wednesday night at the Ironwood with a show that's part of JazzYYC's Illumin8 Series.

Ellen Doty believes rural Alberta is ready for a jazz renaissance.
The 27-year-old isn’t just blowing wishful smoke. She knows small town Alberta as well as anyone, growing up on an acreage in De Winton just outside of Okotoks.
“Jazz tends to have an audience these days where young people have not really been exposed to it,” said Doty, who now lives in Calgary. “It’s great to have young people coming out to shows and being introduced to jazz this way, mixed in with other things they’re more comfortable hearing too.”
Doty is playing the Bailey Theatre on March 3 as part of a 15-stop tour of Western Canada.
