Up Close and Personal with Wren Kelly!
by Chikako ⋅ June 30, 2017
Wren Kelly is a 22 year old singer/songwriter from the Eastern Shore of Nova Scotia
Her debut single “If I Fall” was released on iTunes at the age of 13 after appearing on YTV’s The Next Star in 2009. Her musical style has evolved from Pop Music to an pop-R&B fusion on urban local made beats. Covering a wide variety of raw topics (including mental health, substance abuse, and relationship issues) she intends to provide versatile music that is equally as mindful as it is entertaining.
Favourite Instrument: Piano (I dabble, not trained. Enjoy the sound and wish I could play more)
Favourite Food: Popcorn Chicken Poutine
Favourite Place to Travel: British Colombia- the mountains and the ocean = the best of both worlds.
Favourite Clothing: I really like hats. All kinds of hats, but toques, in particular, are something I can’t live without because I also can’t seem to figure out how to live with bad hair days.
What message do you want youth to hear?
If I wanted youth to take anything away from my message and my music, it would be the importance of mental health and stay authentic. I’d like for youth to be able to think for themselves and not feed into society’s idea of what life should be for them.
Tell us what’s next for you?
The next steps I hope to take musically would be the ability to record and release steadily. I want to release an EP, once I am able to. I’d like to make music more available and more abundant. I would like to record mindful music that has substance, but can also be a playlist staple.
