Kaeley Jade

BIO/DESCRIPTION

Kaeley Jade is an award-winning Métis singer/songwriter, actor, and multidisciplinary artist based in Edmonton, Alberta (amiskwaciwâskahikan). Blending lush imagery and hooky melodic lines to create her own brand of pop-forward indie folk music, Kaeley has performed at venues and festivals across Canada, including the Edmonton Folk Music Festival, JUNOfest, BreakOut West, the Canmore Folk Music Festival, NXNE, Coldsnap, and the Tkaronto Music Festival. Kaeley moves between ballads and bops with ease, and she brings an electricity to the stage whether she is playing an intimate acoustic set or playing alongside her full five-piece band. Kaeley’s deep involvement within the music, theatre and film ecosystems have presented her many opportunities to weave her disciplines together; in 2022, Kaeley joined forces with award-winning playwright Trevor Schmidt to create the critically acclaimed country-folk musical Two-Headed/Half-Hearted, which premiered at Northern Light Theatre with Kaeley in the role of “Venus”. Her music has received radio play across the globe (including a #1 hit on the Indigenous Music Countdown), has been reviewed by publications worldwide, and has been featured in several film and television productions, including Hockey Night in Canada (Sportsnet). Her vibrant debut full-length album, Turpentine, has earned her significant recognition in the Canadian music scene—she is a 3x Canadian Folk Music Award Nominee, Western Canadian Music Award Nominee, Summer Solstice Indigenous Music Award Winner, SOCAN Indigenous Songwriter Awards Finalist, and 2023 Henry Armstrong Award Recipient.
