Kelsey Lu

Kelsey Lu
Born in 1990.
The American Kelsey Lu has been studying music since the age of 6 years old. At the age of 18, she entered an art school to work on vocals and cello, then took part in various projects, collaborating with Southern rap group Nappy Roots, Kyp Malone (TV On The Radio) and Dev Hynes (Blood Orange) or Caroline Polachek (Chairlift).
In 2016 Kelsey Lu recorded her first live album in a church in Brooklyn which is entitled Church with her cello and a pedal of samples. If these two tools, which she mastered with delicacy, still transcend her second album Blood, they are mostly delivered in all their rigidity. On the most pop songs, she launches, in a sometimes heavy precision, to vocalize on the contours of a melody while turning the spotlight again on the fantasy of Laurel Canyon.
