At fifteen years old, Kellie-Anne is already an accomplished artist. Originally from Quebec City, Canada, she lived in Dubai for eight years, beginning when she was only six years old. Though her whole family adores music, she’s the only one pursuing a musical career – and has been since she was nine. Before moving to NYC last year, she was a candidate on The Voice Kids in Canada in 2016. Mixing pop, soul, and electro pop, Kellie-Anne cites Sia, Taylor Swift, and Ed Sheeran as her biggest influences, and we have no doubt that she’s got a bright career ahead.
Considering her youth, Kellie-Anne has quite the list of accolades under her belt. She’s performed at festivals in Dubai (Dubai Marina Music Festival, Dubai Festival City, Dubai Ripe Market Festival) and the US (Jersey Shore Festival). She’s even begun to make a name for herself in NYC, playing at open mics, restaurants, bars, and the legendary The Bitter End. TV and radio networks, as well as online press, in Canada, Dubai, and the US have taken an interest in this promising young artist and so have fans: she’s amassed tens of thousands of fans across social media platforms, and her songs have landed at the top 10 on Whoozl.com for three weeks, top 5 in Reverbnation chart, and achieved 20k streams on Spotify.
Following “Not the Girl”, an electro pop song aiming to help listeners overcome bullying through empowerment, Kellie-Anne has now released “Unlived Dreams.” “If you’ve got a dream, then why is it still just a dream?”, she sings, encouraging the listener to take the steps needed to make their dreams a reality. When she’s not shown singing and playing her piano passionately, she’s writing in a notebook in an NYC park. If there’s anyone who can be looked at as inspiration for making your dreams come true, it’s Kellie-Anne- and things are sure to only go up from here!
