Kelsey Anna Bio
Over the past decade, Kelsey carried her deep affection for singing and writing by her side, implementing both talents as outlets for her life experiences. In those same years, she sought after sharing her life with listeners by playing nearly 150 shows a year along the Gulf Coast. Kelsey learned to balance performing her own original songs with those of lyrical trailblazers, such as Patty Griffin and Emmylou Harris. That union between the old and the new struck a chord within the souls of her listeners, and those listeners became her fan base. With her fans as a support beam, Kelsey began receiving tangible accolades. She was Northwest Florida’s Regional X-Factor winner in 2011 and in 2012, Kelsey’s hit “Poison” won Best Original Song in the Beachcomber Music Awards. She also took home Best Female Vocalist in the same year.
Kat Higgins Bio
"Music is the true constant in my life,” says Kat with a smile. “The only relationship I’ve known how to maintain is with Mr. guitar.” Like some of her influences, The Dixie Chicks, Joni Mitchell, Fleetwood Mac and Emmylou Harris, she knew the importance of crafting a song. Kat thrived on producing the music, not just singing it.
Having caught the attention of Nashville music industry veteran Pat Higdon, she was offered her first publishing deal with Patrick Joseph Music. A young uninhibited spirit blended with old soul wisdom, Kat knows how to tell an emotional story. Her vulnerable lyrics compliment her smoky and unique voice.
Hailey Whitter Bio
The oldest of six children born to a large Catholic family, Whitters grew up a determined but unexpected artist, drawn to songs and singers but unsure why. “I didn’t grow up in a super musical family,” she says. “I just had a weird inkling to do music.” The Dixie Chicks, Trisha Yearwood, Patty Loveless, and other women who drove 90s country radio were her gateway heroines, which led to a deep dive into classic country, and ultimately, Americana storytellers such as Patty Griffin, John Prine, and Gillian Welch.
