Described by CBC as “one of the shining jewels in the crown of Canadian songwriters,” Jadea Kelly spends her time writing and living between Toronto and Los Angeles. In 2016, she was awarded Contemporary Singer of the Year at the Canadian Folk Music Awards for her heartfelt 2016 release Love & Lust. Its featured single “Beauty” was placed on the Lifetime Network feature No One Would Tell and the 2017 CBC Rio Paralympics; an opening montage with over 900,000 views. Set for release on May 17, 2019, the MWI soundtrack EP has already received Best Score & Music accolades from the Hollywood Independent Documentary Awards.
“Love & Lust shines with honesty, intensity and emotion. In fact, the Ontario artist seems to have reached the pinnacle of her career as a songwriter. She has a nice mix of folk and contemporary indie pop, as an amalgam of Patsy Cline and Feist.” – Musicomania
“A record fully engrossed in the dark truths of infidelity, human frailty, and all of the darkest corners of the categories of Love and Lust, Kelly reveals herself in ways we’ve not yet seen from the Toronto songwriter.” – Beatroute
“Standout songs include “Make it Easy,” a song with enough power that it could very well make Jadea Kelly a household name. The lyrics and soundscapes are transcendent with arrangements that would be perfect as a soundtrack to a big-budget film. Jadea’s voice transfixes the listener and sets the stage for the rest of the album.” – Spill Magazine
The Redhill Valleys is a dynamic four-piece Alt-Country and Roots Rock band from Hamilton, ON, which skillfully combines grit-infused harmonies, commanding musicianship, and an energetic, captivating live show. The band consists of guitarists Tim Allard and Danielle Beaudin, bassist Chelsea McWilliams, and drummer Matt Soliveri, and has gained recognition for its familiar yet refreshingly unique sound. Named runners-up at the 2017 Boots and Hearts Emerging Artists Showcase, The Redhill Valleys gained a legion of fans in the Canadian Country music scene. Following a 2017 Canadian East Coast tour, the band was chosen as the CMAO Artist of the Month for October, and was awarded as finalists in Canada’s Walk of Fame’s Emerging Artists Program. In 2018, the band gained nationwide exposure after being chosen as one of Canada’s top 9 in the SiriusXM Top of The Country Contest, and was simultaneously awarded as top fivefinalists in Slaight Music’s “It’s Your Shot” music discovery program. The Redhill Valleys have garnered a lot of attention in a short amount of time, in large part thanks to the band’s critically acclaimed live show which has earned recurring performances and appearances at notable festivals and venues (such as Boots and Hearts, CMAOntario’s New Faces Showcase, Festival of Friends, Sound of Music Festival, Ontario Festival of Small Halls, Lucknow Music in The Fields, Canadian Music Week, Stockey Centre, Canadian Country Music Association, The CNE, The Legendary Horseshoe Tavern, and more). The Redhill Valleys continue in the spirit of heroes Neil Young, Tom Petty, Lucinda Williams, and The Band, but have forged a path, identity and sound all its own. The Redhill Valleys are Tim Allard (guitar, vocals), Chelsea McWilliams (bass, vocals), Danielle Beaudin (guitar, vocals), and Matt Soliveri (drums).
“We can tell you all that this is a group that you should be paying attention to. From Hamilton to Toronto and across the province, you owe it to yourself to keep an eye out for tour dates near you.” – CMAOntario
