Singer-songwriter Jadea Kelly is bringing her talents to the Station Pub on Sunday

Station Pub hosting Jadea Kelly for her Invermere debut

Singer-songwriter Jadea Kelly has poured her entire life into her musical career

 

Singer-songwriter Jadea Kelly has poured her entire life into her musical career, and her vocal abilities have occasionally been featured on tracks by Canadian progressive metal band Protest the Hero.

With the release of her latest solo album, Clover, Jadea will be making her Invermere debut at the Station Pub on Sunday, October 27th.

The new album was named after and largely composed on Jadea’s grandfather’s farm. While writing songs for the record, her dad was helping to manage the farm, and her parents moved back to the homestead to help.

“I started seeing some similarities between being a farmer and being a musician,” she said. “Despite my grandfather not physically being able to farm anymore, he couldn’t sit still. It’s what he loved; it’s his passion and it’s what he’s meant to do, and I feel that same way about my own music.”

She said that the mood at her show will be laid back, but warns that the songs will deliver feelings of power and strength, “because the songs kind of came from an area of my life where I kind of wasn’t strong.”

“I want people to connect with the songs. When we’re on stage, we all conduct ourselves like actors, like it’s a theatre performance,” she added. “I want to convey the songs and the experiences that I’ve gone through so the audience can grasp them,” she said.

Clover was released in May, and Jadea is now on her Canadian tour to promote the album. She and her band started in Newfoundland and are working their way to Victoria, before heading back to southern Ontario. She’s backed by Tom Yuhas on guitar, who also recorded on Clover, and Kelsey McNulty on organ, keys, and vocals.

“When we tour as a trio, we kind of rewrite our songs and colour them in a different way,” Jadea said.

Clover will be on sale at the show, which begins at 8 p.m. this Sunday.
