Music at the Frist: Kelsey Waldon
Singer/Songwriter ~ Cafe ~ FREE
Armed with undeniable talent and an intense love of her craft, Kelsey Waldon is a rare and incredibly refreshing artist; an emerging force of raw, honest, and grounded songwriting in the Nashville music scene. Having collected and absorbed more records in her 23 years than most people will hear in a lifetime, and drawing influence from songwriting greats such as Townes Van Zandt, Bob Dylan, and Neil Young, she has an exceptional ability to evoke an older and often seemingly forgotten era of songwriting, while simultaneously creating a relevant, cutting edge, and unique style, true to her own experience.
Originally from Barlow, Kentucky, Kelsey is now living in Nashville full time, where she was accepted into Belmont University’s prestigious songwriting program, and is currently working on her fourth studio album. Kelsey’s music, like her spirit, is both charismatic and infectious, and to hear her is to experience the world through the inspired eyes of a strong young woman, ready to take on the world, and not afraid to stand out.
