2017 proved to be a year of ‘firsts’ for Sherwood Park singer-songwriter Keltie. Stepping into the studio for the first time with Juno Award winning producer Russell Broom, Keltie recorded 4 original songs. Collected together, the 4 tracks would be released as Keltie’s debut EP “Everything I haven’t Said” on Nov 4, 2017.
The EP would reach #1 on iTunes Top Selling Singer-Songwriter Album chart, with the lead single “Someone Tell Her” reaching #2 on iTunes Top Selling Singer-Songwriter Singles chart.
The momentum would continue for “Someone Tell Her” getting nominated for the Canadian Folk Music Awards, the Edmonton Music Awards and reaching the semi finals in CBC Music’s Searchlight competition and honorable mentions in the Canadian Songwriting Competition. Radio has also supported Keltie spinning “Someone Tell Her” and helping catapult her EP to the #1 spot on CJSR/Edmonton’s chart and the Top 10 on the Canadian National Folk/Roots/Blues chart on Earshot-Online’s College and Community Radio charts.
The coming months will find Keltie performing at a variety of festivals and events across Western Canada, including the Edmonton Music Awards and the Winnipeg Folk Music Festival, leading up to a return to the studio to record some new material and follow up on the success of “Everything I Haven’t Said”
