Windsor, Ontario native Kelsi Mayne has been honing her musical craft for years, and in 2017, country music fans finally got an official taste of what she has to share with the world.
Mayne’s debut single and video were released in October, and have caught the eyes and ears of fans with nearly 30,000 spins on YouTube and Spotify in its first two months. And while Still Not Over You may be her first original single, country fans may be familiar with Kelsi’s voice already from her covers of Sam Hunt’s Body Like A Back Road and Cam’s Burning House. All three songs showcase the talent that Kelsi possesses, and offer a glimpse at what we hope she has to share in the near future.
The red-headed spitfire (Windsor hockey fans, we got you) also brings a ton of personality to her music, showcasing her irreverent and self-deprecating sense of humour in the Still Not Over You video; and, when we chatted with her before the 2016 Boots & Hearts Emerging Artists Showcase, where she was a finalist. In that Q&A, we asked her to tell us what to expect from her set and she told us, “Fire. Drop mic here”. We loved it.
That stage show at Boots & Hearts isn’t the only time Kelsi’s played a big stage setting. In her young career, she’s already shared stages with the likes of Florida Georgia Line, Tim McGraw, Blake Shelton, Dean Brody, Aaron Pritchett, Cam, and more. And before that, like many hard working country artists, it all started in her hometown, as she played regularly at Bull n’ Barrel.
With the release of her single, Kelsi Mayne has started to reach a wider audience of country music fans in Ontario and across Canada. And as she continues to work on new music and a new video shoot this month in Windsor, we are looking forward to 2018 and what’s in store from this rising star.
