Jazz songstress Ellen Doty brings her sweet sound to Hermann’s Jazz Club

March 27 concert in Victoria part of national CD release tour

Ellen Doty, one of Canada’s premiere young artists and songwriters, brings her pared down sound to Hermann’s Jazz Club March 27 as part of her 17-city CD release tour for Come Fall.

The new album has seen Doty strip the music down to its bare bones, leaving a raw and incredibly spacious sound with no bass, no backup vocals, no horns and few layers. Just piano, voice and drums. Come Fall offers a mixture of pop, jazz, soul, folk and indie, a sound that is uniquely Doty’s.

Her 2014 debut pop-jazz album Gold reached top 10 on numerous college radio charts in Canada, and was followed by a successful 42-date tour across the country. In the past year, she supported two-time Grammy-winner Gregory Porter, and recently completed a Western Canada concert theatre tour with award-winning saxophonist Eli Bennett from Vancouver. She was also named by CBC one of the top jazz musicians under 35.

Showtime on Tuesday is 8 p.m. and tickets are $20 each. To reserve seats, click here.
