Growing up roadschooled
Kelsey experienced many of the same things that normal teenagers do, just with a bit of a twist, such as meeting her first boyfriend at a civil war reenactment and going to prom the same night as a songwriting competition. She also was able to spend a lot of time on her music, starting her singing career at RV park karaoke and learning to play guitar on the road.
Growing up roadschooled had a huge impact on her adult life. She struggled with conforming to the corporate world, documented in her song “Free”, and found a new way to channel her roadschooled upbringing by starting her own business and converting her car for camping adventures.
Music and Lyrics
Kelsey’s new album is a journey of positivity, love, and self-reflection. It tells the story of 8 years life, from living on the road with “Travel Junkie” to getting lost along the way in “Broken” to finding her way back to a travel lifestyle in “Free”. Plus, some other fun tunes of life in between like “Duct Tape My Heart”! You can learn the story behind each of the songs, listen to the music, and buy the album on her website here.
