Collaboration with JUAI

From our sources we know that Kelsey is working on a new track with JUAI, one of the UK’s promising and emerging young talents.

When asked about the collaboration, Kelsey explained their family connections and excitement to be working together. But when it comes to staying true to her style, Kelsey is strict in keeping her sound authentic:

“JUAI had expressed interest in collaborating and asked if I could produce something that was commercial that he could add his style to. This works out for me because I am not changing my musical style. My team at Gilkicker got to work and produced a track that both JUAI and his manager absolutely love.”

Future plans

This year apart from the JUAI collab, Kelsey will be releasing three more singles as she jumps between London and Malta for shows, collaborations and work. She will be further developing her art in fashion, makeup, social media presence and performances.

It is safe to say that Kelsey is taking steps in the right direction. This energetic performer is striving to take on the international music industry. However, with her roots coming from the UK this is her first country of focus.

She explains that “I anticipate playing increased gigs in the London area to showcase my records and releases”.

This promising artist sends a clear message to her fellow musicians based in Malta. “Look beyond this island and reach out to the world!”
