The Story So Far..
After returning last month to deliver her third single ‘Hypnotized’, which garnered support from several key playlists including Spotify’s NewPopUK, Apple Music Pop’s New music daily, YouTube Music's Pop Fresh, Filtr’s NewMusicFriday, as well as over 3 million national radio impressions in Ireland in just 3 weeks, Irish pop starlet KEHLI is on a trajectory for stardom.
She collaborated earlier this month with UK's R&B star Louis III to deliver ‘Ur So Cool’ which premiered in industry tastemaker standard Wonderland Magazine as well as being named Record of the day and subsequently Record of the week
last month on the famed publication [ROTD].
Since the release of her second single ‘Believe It’ last September, a lot has changed for the emerging singer. As well as the enormous response it received from Irish radio, with staggering 14.8 million radio impacts nationally and counting across stations such as iRadio, RTE 2FM, Spin 103.8, FM104, both BBC Radio 1 and KISS FM were also regular supporters of the release, and was featured in countless publications including Official Charts ‘One To Watch’, Earmilk, 1883 magazine, The Irish Times, Music Week, Record of the Day and much more.
By the end of 2019, she had collected nearly half a million streams across her Spotify alone since doubling that to a total of over 0.8Million streams on Spotify to date. In addition to being invited to perform the infamous studio 8 sessions for RTE 2 fm, KEHLI was also named one of Top 5 emerging female acts to watch in 2020.
Her debut single ‘One Last Kiss’ reached top 5 positions in three key UK club charts including contemporary pop (#4), urban (#3) and club urban (#3). Watch the video for ‘One Last Kiss’ HERE
Hailing from Dublin, 19-year old KEHLI is a 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 professional dance including contemporary, hip-hop and ballet.
Her evolving passion for music and performance encouraged a 14 year old KEHLI to try her hands 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.
She has since gone on to work with producer/songwriter MSRD - now New York/London based, who’s worked closely with KEHLI to help hone her sound. Other collaborators include the likes of London based Cameron Pool (Anne-Marie, Raye, RAY BLK) who has worked closely on KEHLI’s forthcoming debut, a soulful and edgy, pop infused EP.
2020 is on track to be an exciting one for this young talent and her music.
What Radio and Press Say..
“‘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.”
“In addition to the excellent track, ‘One Last Kiss’ also shows off the rising Irish pop star’s fantastic vocals.”
