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 most recently completed her Christmas Album. It’ll be officially released December 7th/19 the evening she performs with the Saskatoon Symphony Orchestra.
Elly Thorn has released numerous songs to country radio including: Sweet Millie How Christmas Used to Feel Almost Christmas Something In Me and most recently Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.
Something In Me enjoyed some Top 30 action on Sirius XM channel 171
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 happy to express herself.
She loves to create, connect, express and enjoy. Elly is always writing, always performing and always evolving.
