"She is a sensation!" — Ron MacLean, Hockey Night in Canada
As one of three 2019 Sirius XM "Top of the Country" finalists in Canada, singer-songwriter and actress Kelsi Mayne is proving to be one of the fastest emerging artists in the country.
In addition to performing main stages across some of Canada's largest music festivals (eg. Big Valley Jamboree, Boots and Hearts, Havelock Jamboree, and many more), Kelsi is gaining recognition through her big-screen debut on the international film-festival circuit performing the title role "Willa," an award-winning adaptation of the popular Stephen King story.
Her single, "Takin' U Home," captured national audiences on television programs such as Rogers Hometown Hockey Tour and the Canadian Sports Hall of Fame ceremony, and was the #1 independent download on DMDS. Meanwhile, the singer-actress decided to also use her platform to promote the Humane Society — a cause she strongly supports— through her accompanying music video.
Along with her devoted fanbase, the #MayneTrain, Kelsi has garnered tremendous support from industry mainstays such as FACTOR Canada, SOCAN Foundation, the Ontario Arts Council, and Sirius XM. Soundcheck Entertainment reporter Hendrik Pape predicted, "it won’t be long until Kelsi Mayne becomes a household name across Canada."
As she prepares for the release of her debut album in March 2020, Kelsi currently divides her time between Toronto and Nashville. But a dual-city allegiance is nothing new to her. Windsor, Ontario’s hometown sweetheart continues to be true to her blue-collar roots. Growing up within earshot of Detroit, each provides a rich source of her musical inspiration.
Kelsi is also the world's only artist with both a nursing degree and a track record as a nationally ranked hurdler... So if your heart stops at one of her shows, she’ll either help you on the spot, or run for some. Real fast.
