Writing from a position of strength and independence, Kelsey Hayes is an Ottawa based singer-songwriter who takes the listener on a journey of love, longing, and betrayal. Drawing on her own lived experience, she combines heartbreak with her own unique style of indie-pop, creating a genuine and soulful sound.

Beginning as a vocalist, Hayes branched out early on into writing her own material. She released her debut EP to a sold-out crowd at Ottawa’s own Mercury Lounge in Fall 2015. When she is not performing, Kelsey is a prominent member of the student body that comprises Carleton University’s singer-songwriter program through which she was honoured as the 2015 winner of the Musik Ottawa competition. In summer 2016, Kelsey made her international debut, touring multiple cities in China between playing shows at Ottawa's Bluesfest and Cityfolk Festival.

After spending months songwriting and in-studio, Kelsey has put together an EP that brings raw emotion together with a groove that keeps the listener nodding along to her soulful hooks and lyrical stories. Look for Kelsey's long-awaited second EP, due for release in February 2018.
