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 now returns with this poptastic, LOSE U NOW, set to be released on March 2nd 2023.
“I am so excited that my first release of the year is Lose U Now. Kicking off 2023 with the energy of not wanting to lose the one person that makes you happy and makes you love being in love x I hope everyone enjoys this track and wants to play it on repeat!”
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 last single ‘Not OK’ received editorial playlist support from Spotify including New Music Friday UK and was featured on ‘New Pop UK’ for several weeks. It also was used in a nationwide campaign for the Irish charity, Pieta House to highlight awareness about mental health wellness in young adults.
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.
