Emerging Portland-based Singer-Songwriter KELSEY NORENE releases her debut EP titled “Find Me” on August 16, 2016.
The 6-song EP was self-produced under her Norene Now Publishing banner in collaboration with LB7 Studio and Handcrafted Audio. The featured single “There’s Still Time” was pre-released to fans earlier this month.
Fresh Sound: Pop Contemporary and Pure Heart
“Find Me” unveils a fresh sound that combines pop contemporary and pure heart. The title track delivers a strong message about being needed and feeling worthy, even if others don’t see you that way.
Additional tracks on the EP deliver a strong mix of upbeat tunes and contemplative melodies. Some of these include “First Place,” “At All,” “Too Much to Lose” featuring Benjamin Tissell and “Last Words.”
Rising Singer-Songwriter: Musician and Actress
Kelsey brought in several Portland-based artists to accompany her. They are Justin Abel (drums), Jon Oistad (bass), Jason Tamayo (guitar) and Benjamin Tissell (featured vocals).
This rising artist has been performing practically her entire life. Kelsey’s mother, who has an extensive background in music and music education, taught her daughter to both play piano and sing at a young age. During her teen years, Kelsey’s passion for music really took hold, and she began writing her own songs and taking guitar lessons.
After graduating from high school, Kelsey broadened her performing skills by studying acting and music in Los Angeles. She returned to Portland and in 2015 released her first single “You Knew,” a soulful song of young love and heartbreak.
In addition to her music career, Kelsey has also become a working actress in Portland. Her notable credits include an appearance on TNT’s action-adventure series The Librarians. She has also appeared in several commercial campaigns including the Oregon Lottery and Vonage among others.
