Hailing from the East Central Saskatchewan community of Saltcoats, Canadian Country Music Artist, Elly Thorn lives to perform. Typical of rural life, Thorn took music lessons and began her music career as a teenager with the touring musical revue, Saskatchewan Express. She auditioned and was selected to be part of Spirit of a Nation, a showcase of original Canadian music, song and dance designed to celebrate Canada’s land, cultures and history.
Elly was also selected to study at the prestigious Canadian College of Performing Arts in Victoria, B.C. She honed her musical talents aboard Norwegian Cruise Lines and has landed several acting roles including the TV series, Rabbit Fall (2006) and Corner Gas (2009), and also performed with Persephone Theatre in Evita and Toon Town.
With three albums to her credit she is proud to include original songs such as: Dear John, Twelve Thirty Four, and so it is. Her latest album is a mix of her own tunes along with uniquely arranged covers.
Sweet Millie is the first release from her latest offering. This self-penned track is a great way to break the ice with radio, an easy name to remember and a voice you won’t forget.
