Raised in Hudson Bay, SK, Kalsey Kulyk got hooked on singing and playing the guitar at a young age. She took part in hundreds of talent shows and competitions, winning her first songwriting competition at age 13. Everything changed in high school when Kalsey fell ill with cancer, though her journey to recovery created song writing inspiration, and the entire experience solidified Kulyk’s belief in a career in music. With her mind made up, Kalsey’s musical career sped up from there, with the help of Fleetwood Mac producer Richard Dashut, a relocation to Music City, and winning both the Canadian Country Music Association’s Discovery Artist program, and Anthem Entertainment’s (formerly Ole) “On the Spot” competition in one day in 2017. Kalsey returned to Nashville with a publishing and record deal, and wrote songs with Liz Rose and Phil Barton. Now with an arsenal of songs and a survivor’s determination, Kalsey Kulyk is sharing her passions with the world. In remission for over 10 years, she says “What is life unless you’re doing what you love every single day?” Her most recent release in 2023, “Ain’t Enough Whiskey” can be heard on streaming platforms everywhere.
