She got the unique opportunity in 2011 to sing for the judges of X-Factor(USA).
It was at the age of 13 when she truly discovered her love and passion for songwriting! She has since then written a volume of different songs ranging from love, life, and the lessons learned along her journey!
December 2012, she left for Nashville to pursue her first debut album with 2V Productions. Producers Richie Biggs(recording engineer for The Civil Wars, Amy Grant, George Strait, etc.) and Mark Hill(bassist for Reba McEntire and band manager for Keith Urban) came together with Kelsey to create "Beautiful View," a 10 song album with 8 original songs from Lewis, a song written by Mark Hill and then a 1950's cover of the classic Perry Como hit, "Catch a Falling Star." Beautiful View is said to be an album "that has to be savored in its entirety, because it is meant to delight and fill the listener with felicity, through lyrical storytelling by the singer."
Many have coined her with the title of "Vintage Futuristic," when describing her unique style and sound. She loves the art of taking the new and infusing it with the old. Inspired by artists such as The Civil Wars, Joy Williams, Adele, Sara Barilles, Jason Mraz, Christina Perrie, Kimbra, Taylor Swift, Coldplay, OneRepublic, Regina Spektor, Andrew Ripp, Etta James, and Patsy Cline, just to name a few, the range of personality and character in each song can most definitely be traced back to some of the artists listed above.
In December 2014---she released her first Christmas Single...Christmas Beside You!
She is currently working on putting together a tour and writing and finding inspiration for future albums to come. "I just really hope that in some way or form that through my stories they will be able to connect with yours . That's the beauty about music....it's a language of it's own."
