IT BEGINS WITH -
An endless passion for creating, for connecting,
for self discovery, for people, for life.
Performing artist Elly Thorn was raised in a small Saskatchewan community named Saltcoats. Typical of rural life, Thorn took music lessons as a way to fill the long, hot prairie summer days and the cold winter ones that keep you stuck indoors. She began her musical career with the touring musical revue, Saskatchewan Express, as well as the Canadian Heritage Society’s Spirit of a Nation, a showcase of Canadian song and dance celebrating Canada’s cultures and history.
Thorn studied at the prestigious Canadian College of Performing Arts in Victoria, B.C. and honed her musical talents aboard Norwegian Cruise Lines. Multitalented, Thorn has also acted in TV series like Rabbit Fall and Corner Gas, as well as in stage adaptations of Evita and Toon Town with Saskatoon’s Persephone Theatre.
As a songwriter and recording artist, Thorn has four albums to her name and has completed her first Christmas album that was released on December 7th/19 the evening she performed with the Saskatoon Symphony Orchestra.
To conclude a full 2019, Elly Thorn released a comical Christmas video: ‘Am I the Only One’ on to YouTube and her social media platforms. Picture a ‘Home Alone Mom’ Catherine O’Hara, singing a song when she realizes she forgot Kevin! Getting lots of giggles and shares, Elly is most happy expressing herself.
Elly Thorn has released numerous songs to country radio including Sweet Millie, How Christmas Used to Feel, Almost Christmas, Something In Me and soon on August 18th/20 – Eight More Days.
Something In Me enjoyed some Top 30 action on Sirius XM channel 171 and she’s hoping Eight More Days will make an equal or even bigger splash!
Elly loves to create, connect and enjoy life. She is always writing, performing and evolving. The truest loves of her life are hubby Johnny and their four babies: Bella, Millie, Sam, Walt and puppy Sofi.
