Kellylee Evans New

Internationally acclaimed Juno award-winning singer-songwriter Kellylee Evans has been making waves around the world with her energy charged performances. With six albums to her name and a grueling touring schedule, she was no stranger to the hard work involved in making a successful career.
Yet, after a life-altering lightning strike in 2013 and then a concussion in 2015, the mother of three was forced to halt her busy schedule. The following two years saw Evans dedicating her energy to recovering and getting back to making and sharing her music.
Today, when she's not performing, Kellylee teaches and speaks about her journey to recovery and sharing her inspiring story.
