Jadea Kelly’s ‘Lone Wolf’ is your Folk Alliance International Song of the Day


The International Folk Alliance Conference & Winter Music Camp comes to KC February 19-23. To get you geared up for the folk blowout, every day we’re posting a song we like by one of the event’s showcase artists. 

It’s kind of impossible not to fall in love with Toronto’s Jadea Kelly. The singer-songwriter was first recognized for her haunting vocals and classic-minded folk strings on her 2010 album, Eastbound Platform, which earned her a nomination at the Canadian Folk Music Awards for new emerging artist. In September, Kelly released her latest full-length, Clover – and she has never sounded more bewitching than she does on the album’s 11 engrossing tracks.

Kelly strikes a singular balance between the gentle, lonesome twang of her guitar and her prairie-wind vocals, perhaps best heard on Clover‘s “Lone Wolf.”
