2019 promises to be a whirlwind ride of fun and firsts for Canadian singer-songwriter and actress Kelsi Mayne.
In addition to performing at major music festivals across Canada (Big Valley Jamboree, Havelock Jamboree, and more to be announced), Kelsi makes her big-screen debut on the international film-festival circuit performing the title role in "Willa," an adaptation of a popular Stephen King story.
Her current single, "Takin' U Home," is quickly climbing the Canadian Billboard charts, having been introduced late last year on national television and reprised — again for Canada-wide audience — on the Rogers Hometown Hockey Tour telecast.
This Boots and Hearts Emerging Artist Showcase finalist, Trackside Homegrown Spotlight Artist and CMA Ontario New Faces Showcase performer has garnered strong support from industry mainstays, FACTOR Canada, the SOCAN Foundation, and Ontario Arts Council.
Kelsi currently divides her time songwriting 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 city provides a rich source of her musical inspiration.
Kelsi is also the world's only country singer boasting 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.
