Professional actress, songwriter and performing musician, Kelsi Mayne is a modern-country artist from boarder-city Windsor, ON. Although now dividing her time between Toronto and Nashville, Kelsi's Motown roots continue to inform her music today.
2018 has proven to be a stand-out year for Kelsi as she performed on some of Canada's largest platforms including the main stage at Boots and Hearts, Nathan Phillips Square in Toronto, and the National Arts Centre in Ottawa. Her newest single, "Takin' U Home" debuted on national television during her performance at the Canadian Sports Hall of Fame induction ceremony and will make it's second national TV appearance on Rogers Hometown Hockey Tour, December 16th.
As an actress, Kelsi is best known for her lead role in the Stephen King short film "Willa," which will be shown across the international festival circuit in 2019, and in the River Town Saints’ popular music video, "Cherry Bomb," with over 3.5 million views. Meanwhile, Kelsi's own debut music video "Still Not Over You" gained popularity for a different reason as TheReviewsAreIn.com stated, it "showcases her irreverent and self-deprecating sense of humour."
Although she takes herself lightly, Kelsi has shared bills with names like Florida Georgia Line, Tim McGraw, Blake Shelton, Dean Brody, Randy Houser, Chris Young, Cam, and Russell Dickerson. She has also collaborated with top industry professionals including Ryan Stewart (two-time Juno award winner and writer/producer for Carly Rae Jepsen, Victoria Duffield, Hedley), David Genn (multi-Juno award winner and writer/producer/musician for 54-40, Mariana's Trench, Matthew Good Band), two-time Grammy nominated producer/songwriter/musician Curt Chambers, and Jason Blaine (CCMA, CMAO, and SOCAN award-winning artist/songwriter).
