Kelsey’s first vocal influences were the Jazz greats: Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan, and Esperanza Spalding. She started writing music at 13, formed a band at 14 and started her own all female A cappella group in High School.
She traveled often growing up, which is when she ends up writing her music- on long car rides, in a plane or even walking to the store. From the age of 15, she was managing herself as a live performer in small cafes, at live events and for various creative projects. By the time she graduated high school she had written, produced and released two EPs.
The project, Kelsey, is of Kelsey Hillock’s heart and mind and soul. It’s the way she expresses her happiness, contentment, sorrows, and concerns. It’s her exulting method to communicate with the ones she loves, care for, and wants to get to know deeper.
‘Begging’ isn’t of action in the traditional sense. It’s a beckoning that is full of life and wanting of the life that she’s imagined. It’s the heart fluttering desire to be the best she can, in the seemingly unjust, of life and living.
Kelsey thanks the stars for such gifts and challenges.
