Kellie Loder Bio:
There is something truly extraordinary about Juno Award–nominee Kellie Loder.
It can be found in the poignant lyrics set against melodic folk/pop, and in the singer/songwriter’s electrifying live shows which simultaneously inspire profound emotion in listeners while charming them with sparkling anecdotes.
For proof, listen to her most recent single “Fearless”, which is already receiving high praise and chosen as the soundtrack behind an IMAX Trailer for Superpower Dogs, narrated by Chris Evans (Captain America), as well as her brilliant and emotive third album, Benefit of the Doubt, elevating subjects from intoxicating love and equality to the exquisite pain of growing apart.
It’s these songs that, in 2018, have offered her nominations for CFMA Contemporary Singer of the Year, MusicNL Ron Hynes Songwriter of the Year, Female Artist of the Year & Pop Artist of the Year; the 2018 RBC Master in Residence in Edmonton; and put her on the same stage as Steven Page, Stephen Fearing, and Alan Doyle.
Those contrasting yet complementary sensibilities doubtless stem from her native Newfoundland and Labrador, a rugged and remote place steeped in storytelling tradition, where comedy and tragedy are twin markers for successfully navigating life, a point documented by legions of legendary artists from the region. Loder is poised to ascend those rarefied ranks.
Anyone who has heard Loder or watched her perform knows one thing is certain: she is a towering talent about to explode on the world stage.
