Mia Kelly is a singer-songwriter from Gatineau, Quebec, who performs in both French and English. With her distinctive blend of folk, rock, and blues, she is swiftly gaining recognition as a poetic lyricist with a powerful and versatile voice. Mia is an imaginative storyteller who channels her raw and vulnerable emotions through her expertly crafted songs. In August of 2022, she released her first album, Garden Through the War. Produced and mixed at Fixed Hinge Studio by Ottawa’s Jim Bryson (Kathleen Edwards, The Tragically Hip) and mastered by Grammy-nominated Phillip Shaw Bova, the record demonstrates maturity in Mia’s songwriting. Exploring themes of resilience and growth that follow hardship, the album has received recognition from the SOCAN Foundation. This year, Kelly was awarded “Emerging Artist of the Year” by Culture Outaouais and will represent Canada in the 2023 Jeux De La Francophonie.
