Kelsy Karter – Australian blue-eyed soul singer is here to disobey, and conquer. She moved to Los Angeles as a runaway teenager, with no plan, no fears and an innocent rebellion. Miss. Karter was brought up on motown, soul and rock n roll. She is re-inventing these genres into her own little mix of musical wonder. Storytelling is one of her favorite parts of being an artist,as she grew up in the theatre singing, acting and dancing, as well as playing the piano and flute in the school orchestras. Kelsy’s style is a cross between 60’s rocknroll and a real life circus doll and has been described as “The Rebel Doll”, because of this mix of style, musically, visually,and spiritually.
“I feel like I was meant to live through the 50’s and 60’s, so I embrace that. I am heavily influenced by people like James Dean, Johnny Depp, Angelina Jolie and Elvis. I wanted to join the circus as a kid too… so I guess I dig a little madness”. Her musical heroes include Amy Winehouse, Sam Cooke, Elvis, James Brown, The Rolling Stones, John Newman, Stevie Wonder, Bruno Mars and The Beatles. Kelsy was a misscheivous kid, with a fearless, impulsive and emotional nature. She is taking those parts of her and channeling them into something great. Something magical.
“I am a firm believer of embracing your oddities, and making your strange your strength. I love love, I fight hard, and am irrevocably addicted to chaos”. “Kiss the Boys” is the debut extended play by Australian emerging singer and songwriter Kelsy Karter. It was released on digital retailers on October 25th.
