Thank "She is a sensation!" — Ron MacLean, Hockey Night in Canada
"[An] over-abundance of talent" — Robert Tuomi, Eyes on Windsor
"It won’t be long until Kelsi Mayne becomes a household name across Canada" — Hendrik Pape, Soundcheck Entertainment
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 country artists in the country.
In addition to performing main stages across some of Canada's largest music festivals (Big Valley Jamboree, Havelock Jamboree, Boots and Hearts, and many more), Kelsi is making 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 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 by radio on DMDs. Meanwhile, the singer-actress decided to also use her song to promote pet adoption— a cause she strongly supports— through her accompanying music video.
While garnering strong support from industry mainstays, FACTOR Canada, the SOCAN Foundation, and Ontario Arts Council, and remaining the only completely independent Sirius XM "Top of the Country" contestant, Kelsi is a force to be reckoned with as she is quickly becoming a fan favourite. Soundcheck Entertainment reporter Hendrik Pape said it best stating, "it won’t be long until Kelsi Mayne becomes a household name across Canada."
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 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.
