“Doty’s talents, both as a vocalist and a songwriter, allow her to effortlessly marry her jazz side with a more polished contemporary approach that pulls from blue-eyed soul and hand-clap pop. The result is not only widespread appeal — from purists to those with an aversion — but a sound that’s truly unique.” -Mike Bell, Calgary HeraldCalgary’s soulful vocalist and songwriter, Ellen Doty, released her much-anticipated debut full album titled Gold on May 29, 2014.

Not only is it an organic blend of pop and jazz, but it gives you a window into my very deepest thoughts and feelings. I couldn’t be more excited to share it with the world! It’s my gold.” Gold is available on iTunes, Spotify, Amazon, Rdio, and more.
