Janice Jo Lee is an award-winning folk artist rooted in Kitchener-Waterloo, Ontario. She is a singer-songwriter, poet, storyteller and community organizer. She sings, speaks and shares stories about love, struggle, and community. She is disarmingly hilarious, off-the-cuff and fearlessly honest. Lee’s new album Sing Hey is a vocal and acoustic showcase with songs themed on feminism, poverty and friendship. There are sing-along anthems for the people, and sit-back-and-chill folk songs that will comfort your tired soul. Her debut album Drown the Earth was played on CBC Radio across the country. Lee was the City of Kitchener’s Artist in Residence for 2015 and created a videopoem project called Folk Myths of Kitchener. She was nominated for the Ontario Arts Council K.M. Hunter Award in Literary Arts in 2014 and received an Ontario Women’s Directorate “Leading Women, Building Communities” Award in 2015. Twitter@janicejolee
