Kelsea Little – ‘Personal Myth’ Big things come in Little packages. Kelsea Little is enjoying the success of her debut album, Personal Myth, which has only been released for a few months but expands her fan base since she was first discovered. Although her previous musical efforts have been rooted in folk, her CD delves further into new territory with a sound that is definitely more edgier than previously her from her. Little’s voice is anything but. She opens the CD with the song ‘Blue Feather’ and it is clear from the first track that this young girl has a voice older than the rest of her. Her personal lyrics belie someone as young as she is. ‘Walnuts in Peru’ will remind some fans of a young Bonnie Raitt. Since going solo, Little has moved on to big things. Her first band, The Wrong Trousers, featured Little as the vocalist and lyricist, Mackenzie Leighton on bass and Joseph Lorge on mandolin. Hailing from California, they formed the group while still in high school and quickly built up a grass roots following with their slightly off-kilter acoustic sound. The trio released one album, the acclaimed One and Counting in 2007, which was produced by Peter Sprague. After two years together and a cult following, they disbanded in 2009 and Little signed with Aural Gravy Records and immediately began writing and recording for her debut solo album. Noted for her instrumentation, Kelsea Little plays five instruments on her album as well as providing most of the vocals. Mack Leighton, her former band mate appears on four tracks as the string bassist, with James Albers (electric bassist), Tasha Locke (saxophonist), Sean Burdeaux (guitar), Wyatt Stone (mandolin, pedal steel), and drummer Jose Guererro add their musical skills to the overall production. Personal Myth succeeds in establishing Kelsea Little as a formidable, and still maturing young artist whose lyrics and voice will capture a larger following with each successive album. She has already made her mark as a performer on stage, appearing notably at the Telluride Festival. There are big things in store for Ms. Little.
