Ellen Doty plays Lorenzo’s

The Canadian vocalist returns to the Okanagan hot on the heels of her critically acclaimed debut album

Canadian vocalist and songwriter Ellen Doty returns to the Okanagan this weekend with a performance at Lorenzo’s Cafe.

Doty is a soulful Canadian vocalist and songwriter with a world-class voice. Her music is rooted in jazz, yet seamlessly incorporates elements of other genres including folk and pop.

A true storyteller whose works are as intimate and as personal as their handwritten lyrics, Doty’s immense talent for songwriting is only complemented by her stunning vocals. Rich, sultry and sweet, her voice draws listeners in and takes them on an unforgettable journey.

Doty will be returning to the Okanagan area for a summer tour that includes a stop at Lorenzo’s Cafe in Enderby for a concert on Saturday.

The past year was a huge success for Doty, as she released her much-anticipated first full album Gold in May, which broke the top-10 on several jazz charts in Canada including CFBX, CFMU, and CJSW.

After an overwhelming response to her crowd-funding campaign, Doty embarked on a 30-city, 46-stop tour which kicked off in Sydney, N.S., and ended in Victoria, B.C.

Hot on the heels of her critically-acclaimed debut album, Doty continues to enchant audiences across the country with show-stopping performances. Her first single from her upcoming album Just So You Know was released in April.

Ellen Doty plays Lorenzo’s Cafe Saturday. The restaurant opens at 6 p.m. for dinner and the concert starts at 8 p.m. For reservations call 250-838-6700. Tickets are $10.
