“One of the country’s leading pop prospects” – THE LINE OF BEST FITS
“Irish pop star on the rise, KEHLI” – EUPHORIA
“‘Kehli 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 ” – OFFICIAL CHARTS
After releasing her highly praised acoustic pop banger ‘Not Ok’ which went on to win notable mention in the International Songwriting Award in 2022, Irish pop starlet KEHLI returns with the poptastic, ‘All Outta Love’, set to be released on May 18th 2023.
“‘Writing All Outta Love made me finally realise my worth in a lot of ways. Feeling like you have no more love to give when all you have given is your all is so draining, especially for the wrong person!! Walking away from someone that you know is bad for you and are certain as you can be about the situation, can still be so hard. I couldn’t understand for a really long time why I was letting myself go through what I did when I knew I deserved better so I hope people can feel that through the song when they listen to it ””
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.
KEHLI has been hotly tipped as ‘one to watch’ by the Official Charts UK, charted top #5 in 3 commercial charts as listed by Music Week, and, has received support from national radio stations including BBC Radio 1, Kiss FM, & RTE 2FM.
Her previous releases received editorial playlist support from Spotify including New Music Friday UK and was featured on ‘New Pop UK’ for several weeks.
In total, previous releases have received 14 editorial playlist adds including Pop Remix (3Million listeners) on Spotify. The tracks have been added to Apple Music’s New Music Daily, YouTube Music’s Pop Fresh, & Filtr UK’s New Music Weekly playlist, amassing over 1.5 million streams across all platforms and over 13 Million national radio impressions in Ireland alone. KEHLI has been featured in multiple mainstream press looks including Wonderland, Clash, Earmilk, Record of the Day, Irish Times & Hot Press Spotlight.
She made her national TV debut on The Late Late Show with Ryan Turbidy, where she sang with the IWIH (Irish Women in Harmony) group. Playing to crowds of over 4000 people at the likes Independence festival and Sea Sessions festival this year, KEHLI is putting finishing touches to her forthcoming music which is an urban-infused pop EP with edgy ear-catching tunes.
The future is on track to be an exciting one for KEHLI.
