Forest City Gallery’s Hear There With music by Jelli 11am-4pm Market Lane Stage (Between 131 and 141 Dundas St)
Josh Ellison, aka Jelli, is a diverse music producer with roots in Orchestral, Metal, Electronic, and Hip-Hop music currently operating a recording studio in downtown London, Ontario, helping local artists shape their musical creations. His musical background, education and dedication to continuous learning set him apart as a producer, striving to create emotionally engaging music that leaves a lasting impact on listeners' hearts. Jelli cherishes the process of creation and aims to craft music that resonates deeply with his soul and leaves a lasting legacy in the music industry. For this event: there will be a few microphones armed which will capture street sounds or any invited interactions with attendees, which Jelli will remix and integrate into broader electronic music he creates throughout the event. Developed in 2013, Hear Here is Forest City Gallery’s commitment to honouring London’s contemporary musical history. By providing a safe and accessible space for performance, Hear Here looks to champion events that offer a multitude of musical genres and artistic performance. Hear Here is programmed by a volunteer committee and chaired by the Hear Here Chair, who sits on the Board of Directors of Forest City Gallery. Forest City Gallery’s Hear Here series has been generously supported by Chris and Lina Bowden through both the Cambria Foundation and the Bowden Family Fund through the London Community Foundation.
