Don’t let that big smile and tall, quirky demeanor fool you – Ellen Doty is one of Calgary’s most soulful jazz vocalists and songwriters. Hailing from Okotoks, this Geology Major took the leap to follow her passion a few years ago and hasn’t looked back since.
2014 was a huge success for Ellen. She released her much-anticipated first full album “Gold”, which broke the top ten on several jazz charts in Canada. Hot on the heels of her critically acclaimed debut album, Ellen embarked on a 30 city, 46 stop Canadian tour enchanting audiences across the country with show stopping performances. 2015 was even bigger as she set her sites on releasing her sophomore album and toured internationally, which included a show in New York City with acclaimed jazz drummer, David Mancini. Released in April 2015 was her first single from her upcoming album “Just So You Know” and we can’t wait to hear what she’s got up her sleeve next.
