Behind the Music
Kelsey Blackstone is a pop-soul singer-songwriter from Boston, MA. She graduated in 2021 from the Berklee College of Music, and has won awards from Berklee and from the United Nations for her songwriting for social change.
A fixture of the New England scene, she’s given mesmerizing shows to crowds at the NYC’s Mercury Lounge, Sofar Sounds, University of Rhode Island, Boston’s legendary Club Passim, and more. She has also been featured on WERS, WLAS, WRBB, the Boston Hassle, YMX, and Send Me Your Ears, to name a few.
Kelsey’s music is bursting with modern synths and heart-felt songwriting, yet has a foot in the door of the groovy 70s. Her sound is rich with excitement, passion, and the kind of infectious energy that makes you get on your feet to dance with your friends. An award-winning songwriter and avid performer, Kelsey and her 7 piece band love to give their audiences an entire experience - not just a song. Weaving her world with colors, bubbles, sass, and fun, Kelsey uses retro nostalgia with modern soul to create her magnetic sound.
