Kelsie Simpson – Cry Me A River cover

My name is Kelsie Simpson, I am 14 years old, living in California but originally from England. I love to sing and perform. I have been playing the piano for 3 years and the guitar 6 months. I hope to sing professionally some day. A couple of months ago I started working with the well respected vocal coach Peisha McPhee (American Idol mentor and Mom to Katherine McPhee) who has boosted my confidence dramatically. Recently I started composing my own music and I love to post my video performances on youtube to see what feedback I get. People seem to like my style which is a little Jazz and Pop mixed. I like singing the standards but love modern music too such as Amy Winehouse (RIP) and Adele who is a fantastic vocalist. You can visit my YouTube channel and check out my work at Thanks !!!!

  • Hi Kelsie,

    You’re on to something here…cool to see someone as young as you appreciating such a classic style.  You’ve got a good strong voice…need a little work on your dynamics and careful with the pitch when you belt out.  All in all I think you’re off to a fantastic start!  I look forward to your next post :)
