There is something truly extraordinary about Juno Award Nominee and proud Newfoundlander, Kellie Loder. It can be found in their 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 2019 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/Avengers), as well as her brilliant and emotive third album, Benefit of the Doubt (2018), elevating subjects from intoxicating love to the exquisite pain of growing apart.
It’s these songs that 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 Calgary, AB; and put her on the same stage as Steven Page, Stephen Fearing, Alan Doyle. She was scheduled to be the supporting act for Joel Plaskett’s album release tour in May 2020, but the tour has been postponed and is being rescheduled due to COVID-19.
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.
