Ketsia Bio: Indie phenomenon, KETSIA, continues to tear up the charts. Last summer her hit single “Possible” went to #9 on Billboard Magazine’s “Emerging Artists”. By August it was charting on Billboard’s “Hot 100”. ME Magazine took note, featuring her as a “Rising Star” in their summer 2010 issue. Meanwhile, her single “Quand je t’ai rencontré” is racing towards national Gold download status. With a rapidly increasing online presence (over 21,000 Facebook fans), and radio air play from east to west, Ketsia is headed nowhere but up. Her recently released debut album, “Une Reine Est Née” shows why. From the undeniably rocky pulse of “Let It Go” to the dance grooving “Down Pour Toi”, Ketsia is all about integrity. Nowhere is this more apparent than in her live show, where she brings Barrucco’s production to life through a rocking, grooving set backed by the power of live guitars, basses, drums and a mother lode of funky keyboards and samplers. A proverbial “show-stopper”, Ketsia genuinely loves performing, and always lights up the stage! Small wonder an impressive list of Canadian talent lined up to join her on this album: Vancouver’s Ryan Stewart (Carly Rae Jepsen, Canadian Idol); Russell Klyne (Nelly Furtado, K-OS); and Montréal’s own Joe Barrucco (MC Mario, Samantha Fox, 3 JUNO-nominated tracks). Like Montreal, the city where she was born and raised, Ketsia’s unique style draws on a mix of cultural and musical influences: her Haitian heritage, her background as a child choral singer, and her singing and songwriting work in a variety of genres, from R&B, Pop, and Hip-Hop, to Dance. The result is a dance musical style that speaks to her personality in both English and French: fun and infectious, at times bold, at times reflective, but always from the heart. With her come-as-you-are-attitude, lyrical voice, and undeniably positive spirit, Ketsia cuts through the cookie-cutter clutter to reach music fans worldwide.
