Discovery: Kelsy Karter

LA-based Kelsy Karter moved to the States from Australia when she was eighteen.

By Graeme Smith

Her Australian heritage comes through nicely in new track Too Many Hearts to Break, with spoken word lines breaking up the smooth rhythm of what could have been a predictable pop song. Instead, Kelsey has a refreshing style. She recognises her own talent and beauty the perfect antithesis to the archetypal doomed songwriter.

Kelsy calls her style ‘modern soul’ and it’s a justified title. Big soul refrains meet with a big beat that is the current raison d’etre of pop music. Check out Too Many Hearts To Break below.
