Episode 5: A Talk with SunQueen Kelcey
SunQueen Kelcey's path to becoming a musician was not without experimentation. Before she was the leading lady of the Soular Flares, she had her share of heartache and challenges. Learn what led her to writing her first song, and how her genre-bending experience with the band Dalton Village helped her grow. Musical inspirations from Mary J. Blige to Shania Twain have led her to create a sound she's coined "Soul Folk". Garry and Kelcey talk about how she sees music as a vessel of activism and self-expression.  Be sure to check out her album "The SunQueen", featuring production by Jordan C. Jones.
