Canada Covers Tom Petty

Hey Buds ! A few months ago my partner and I recorded a sweeeeeeeet cover of Wildflowers (Tom Petty classic) and decided to build an all Canadian playlist / tribute around it. The response from fellow Canadian songwriters was overwhelming and grew into a massive playlist. It’s nuts ! This playlist includes my musical heroes and launches Oct 20th (Tom Petty’s Birthday). However, many of the covers will be released throughout the month of October, including mine which launches Oct 2nd on all streaming platforms. It also earned a pretty sweet premiere on CBC Q ( huge fan of this program and Tom Power) (11:20am EST) and CBC ‘Under the Covers’ (8:30am EST) Oct 2nd, 2018. Hope you enjoy ! We’re also doing a TP tribute in my home away from home (Toronto ON) Dec 20, 2018. Tickets available under the ‘tour’ tab. LOVE YOU xo More music announcements coming soon !

Musical Collaboration w / Met While Incarcerated the Film

Hello Friends ! Last summer I was approached by director Catherine Legge to compose a new collection of songs for her emotional and eye opening documentary ‘Met While Incarcerated the Film’ ; a film detailing the lives of prison inmates and their wives / partners in the outside world. The documentary will be premiered next year through CBC Docs / Documentary Channel but I really really really wanted to share the progress and video teasers. Check out @metwhileincarceratedthefilm and follow the films progress ! You can also look forward to a new Jadea Kelly EP in the fall of 2018, containing the full documentary soundtrack.
