"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... 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."
