Anthem Entertainment (formerly ole) artist Kalsey Kulyk has announced that her debut, self-titled album will release August 30. The newcomer’s most recent single, “Bad Liar,” is one of seven tracks featured on the project, along with nostalgia-laced previous track release “More Time.”
“I have waited forever to have an album like this. And that’s not being conceded or egotistical. I have worked on these songs and what I wanted to say for a very long time and I feel like I can finally say I’m proud of what this record says,” says Kulyk. “It’s a record for people who feel like they haven’t yet been heard in a song. For people who have felt love, felt loss, and need to be reminded that they are not alone.”
Kulyk spent most her life on the road, performing anywhere she could in her native Canada. As a teenager, she caught the attention of GRAMMY Award-winning producer Richard Dashut (Fleetwood Mac), who moved her to his home base of Las Vegas and began work with her. “(Kalsey) has this singularity, this innocence… I started to feel this spirit that I don’t think I’d heard since Stevie Nicks,” Dashut remarked of Kulyk.
After winning ole’s “On the Spot” competition and signing with their Toronto-based Red Dot Records, Kulyk moved to Nashville and began writing for the upcoming album. The project includes songs co-written by everyone from industry vets Liz Rose (“Tim McGraw for Taylor Swift, “Tornado” for Little Big Town) and Phil Barton (“Can’t Stop Loving You” for Sara Evans, “Skin & Bones” for Eli Young Band) to up-and-comer Lainey Wilson (Broken Bow). Known for pairing thought-provoking lyrics with effortless vocals, Kulyk enlisted the help of producer Oran Thornton to set the tone for the album.
