Biography

Karyn Ellis is an indie folk / singer-songwriter from Toronto, Canada. To date she has independently released four albums independently, her most recent one called “More Than A Hero” came out in late 2013. She has played over four hundred live appearances, engaging audiences both across Canada and internationally. Her music is regularly featured on Canada’s national radio station - CBC radio one & two - and has charted nationally on the campus/community radio charts.

***********************

Guelph Mercury calls her “a revelation”. Globe and Mail says Karyn Ellis is a “must-see” songstress and has “a magical way with song.” Whether singing poignant tunes-of-the-heart or leading raucous sing-a-longs, Karyn is captivating, funny and smart in song and banter. And, that voice! Delicate and dynamic, she delivers thoughtful, crafted lyrics about every day wonders, beauty and hope.

Brought over as a babe-in-arms from the UK, Karyn grew up in Ontario, Canada in a household steeped in jazz and classical music. She studied two years of opera in University and through high school played trumpet in the marching band. Meanwhile she spent hours singing along to records by her favourite classic singer-songwriters such as Joni Mitchell, Leonard Cohen, and she was also a devout fan of David Bowie and the Beatles. A wide range of influences gave her a solid, eclectic musical foundation and enriched her distinctive folk / roots style.
