Recording artist Kelsi Luck teams with internationally renowned British
songwriter for upcoming debut album
LOS ANGELES, July 15, 2013
LOS ANGELES, July 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ - Singer-songwriter Kelsi Luck,
recently signed to a singles deal with eOne, is announcing an exclusive
writing collaboration with Claudia Mills, one of the UK's preeminent pop
songwriters. Mills will serve as the only top-line writer for Luck's
not-yet-titled forthcoming debut album.
"Claudia's writing style is essential to my career," Luck said. "She helps me
express what I want to say within my music like no other songwriter I've
worked with. We're recording exciting new songs that will stand out in today's
market as something musically innovative."
Earlier this year, Luck recorded the singles, "Weekend," "Straighten You Out,"
"We Are" and "Gypsie Heart," each co-written by Mills. Luck also has recorded
the single "You Never Take Me Dancing," due out later this summer. The tracks
will make up an EP that's expected to release before the end of the year.
"We're taking elements from all of our old influences from the 50s and 60s
style of pop music," said the 19-year old Mills, adding Luck's influences are
Cyndi Lauper and Madonna. "Kelsi wanted to work with me exclusively because
she needed songs that are radio hits."
Luck, 22, from St. Louis, transplanted to LA to pursue music under the
direction of producer Blake Healy, formerly of Metro Station. Her single and
music video, "That's What I Like," punctuated her arrival as a burgeoning
artist to watch in pop music. Now a YouTube sensation, the song is featured in
the trailer for CBS Films' "The To Do List" starring Aubrey Plaza. It has
been placed in TV promos for FOX and ESPN, and reached No. 19 on the Top 45
Countdown on Sirius XM Radio New York.
Mills' songwriting has helped sell more than 750,000 albums worldwide. She
wrote "Puppet" for the album, "Headlines," from electro pop group, The
Saturdays (Geffen/UK). The album reached No. 3 on the UK Albums Chart and the
European Top 100 albums list.
Mills has written with Printz Board (Black Eyed Peas), David Gamson (Kelly
Clarkson, Adam Lambert), Quiz Larossi (Coverdrive, Kelly Clarkson) and
DarkChild producer, Harmony. She's also written exclusively for BMG Chrysalis
and EMI Records artists.
Luck is on tour this summer with The Ready Set. She'll next perform today at
the Troubadour in West Hollywood, Calif.
