“Irish pop star on the rise, KEHLI” – EUPHORIA
“‘One Last Kiss’ wouldn’t feel hugely out of place on Mabel’s Ivy to Roses mixtape, Dua Lipa’s self-titled album or Mahalia’s Seasons EP – the dancehall feel makes it a fitting soundtrack for the summer months.” – OFFICIAL CHARTS
“One of the country’s leading pop prospects” – THE LINE OF BEST FITS
After releasing her highly praised acoustic pop banger ‘Not Ok’ which went on to win notable mention in the International Songwriting Award this year, Irish pop starlet KEHLI now returns with this poptastic, acoustically driven holiday tune aptly titled: ‘This Christmas (All I Want Is U).

The refreshing bed of acoustic and electric guitars render a breezy, upbeat, and uplifting song that’s sure to tug at heartstrings and command a few head bobs this Christmas.
Speaking of the track and her reason for releasing it, Kehli says ‘
‘Christmas to me is about being with the ones you love so this is about that one person you wish you could have that means more to you than all the material things. The track comes equipped with easy visuals sure to set the tone for festivities ahead of the season.’
Originally from Dublin, Ireland, KEHLI is a 21year old vocalist and performer with a soulful, passionate and unique interpretation of contemporary pop music. She spent her early years at stage school, where from age 5, she studied music and dance including contemporary, hip hop and ballet.
Her evolving passion for music and performance encouraged 14 year old KEHLI to try her hand on a couple of TV music shows (usual suspects The Voice/X Factor etc.) which, at such a tender age, provided invaluable experience and gained her a small cult online following
It was this experience that led to an introduction with New York / London based songwriter/producer, MSRD, who worked closely with KEHLI along with a few other key collaborators to create her sound.
