A native of Hudson Bay, Saskatchenwan, Kalsey’s battle with cancer at the age of seventeen inspired her to adopt the mantra, Sing And Be Heard; one that she has carried with her throughout her musical journey. That mantra radiates through her music, inspiring people and drawing listeners to her unique sound. The infectious mix of country storytelling and whimsical folk instrumentation is filled with messages of hope, strength, and perseverance. At only 19, she moved to Las vegas to work with famed record producer, Richard Dashut (Fleetwood Mac), developing the sunny sound that landed her a record deal with Phaymis Records. With the release of her successful debut EP in 2014, Kalsey headed right back into the studio to follow it up, and it was then that her uplifting single, “Rewind” was born.
Poignant lyrics paint a picture of someone finally saying goodbye to the heartbreak and chaos left behind by a past love, joyously turning their back on nights of longing and crushed dreams, taking an otherwise painful experience and washing it in hope. Kalsey’s tender, romantic vocals melt over the sweeping chorus, infusing the crescendo of harmonies with her trademark positivity. In the midst of a flippant dismissal of Mr. Wrong, she finds peace and courage within herself, a message that is equal parts inspiring and energizing. It’s a track that ignites your need for a second listen and makes you want to get up and dance at the very same time.
