“She is a sensation!”
– Ron MacLean, Hockey Night in Canada
One of three finalists in SiriusXM’s nation-wide “Top of the Country” contest, Kelsi Mayne is bracing for her biggest year yet. Her latest single,“As I Go” hit the airwaves Jan. 31, with the teaser generating 1.2 million TikTok views in 24 hours.
Kelsi’s previous single,”Takin’ U Home,” has more than 440k Spotify spins, was the #1 independent download on DMDS, and captured the attention of national audiences on Rogers Hometown Hockey Tour, and the Canadian Sports Hall of Fame ceremony on CTV. The song was also used to promote Humane Society adoption programs – a cause close Kelsi’s heart.
Kelsi has played the main stages at some of Canada’s most celebrated music festivals, from Havelock Jamboree, to Boots & Hearts, to the Big Valley Jamboree. And 2019 saw her take to the big screen as the lead in Willa, a Stephen King adaptation still making the rounds on the film-festival circuit. The former sprint-hurdler (once ranked 3rd in Canada) is now arguably the fastest-rising independent country artist in Canada.
