Biography

Singer/Songwriter/Producer Keith Anthony Kelsaw aka Kjae began his musical journey with one important ingredient; raw talent and love and respect for all music. Hailing from Long Beach California, Kjae’s musical influences range from R&B, Pop, Rock, and Hip Hop, to the Jazz, Pop Standards, and Soul music he grew up listening to at home. Kjae breaks ground with an Urban Rhythmic and Pop sound and when you hear it, you know right away that you are charting new territory.

Kjae first grabbed the attention of Myspace with the S1 hit single, "I Found My Girl on Myspace" which earned the group not one but two features on the Myspace music page. His remake of New Edition's "Can You Stand the Rain" garnered serious college radio airplay. Kjae has done the work and the proved it when his group, S1 was selected to compete on MTV's Top Pop Group in the fall of 2008'.

Kjae's musical influences include Usher, Timberlake, Seal, Lenny Kravitz, Babyface, Pharrell, Boys II Men, Tevin Campbell, Prince, MJ, Jay-Z, Kanye, Eminem, Chrisette Michelle just to name a new and these influences contribute heavily to the impeccable blend of harmonies Kjae lends his unique style of vocals to create his signature sound.

Kjae puts it down on stage and knows how to grab his audience. His music is not the typical vibe you'd hear from an artist of this nature. Described as Urban Hip Pop, this music is the MJ meets Justin Timberlake sprinkled with a little Usher and some Robin on the side. Kjae says “I just go in to make music and I never know just what the result will be, but I don’t tailor my music to fit anyone’s idea of what it should be, or it won’t be authentic. It just has to come out, and whatever happens, happens.”

Rebuild Me

Written By: Keith Kelsaw Jr.

Rebuild Me

I need you maybe than you’ll ever know
Can’t reach you and the more that I try you go away
And there’s nothing that I can do without you in my life
You’ve helped me reach to places I’ve only dreamed
I’ve been to the sky and back cause you gave me wings
I’m grateful for all of the love and blessings you’ve given me
But now I need you cause
I’ve crashed and I’ve burned
I’ve lived and I’ve learned
What more do I need to do to win you back in my life
What more do I need to do to get back to the light
When the time is right, I’ll be there

Can you rebuild me so I can walk again
Rejuvenate my love, so I can breathe again
Can you open the door so that my heart can beat again
Can you rebuild me, rebuild me again, rebuild me again
Rebuild me again, rebuild me again

I know I made some mistakes in my lifetime but can you forgive me
Can you rebuild me cause I’m only human didn’t know what I was
Now my life dwells in ruin (high harmony sticks out too much, turn down)
Devastation swept like a flame blew in
I used to wear the S on my chest and now
I look like a mess and now I need you to come and save me
I believe in you so believe in me
I’m seeing you but you not seeing me
I want to get away, I want to get away

Can you rebuild me so I can walk again
Rejuvenate my love, so I can breathe again
Can you open the door so that my heart can beat again
Can you rebuild me, rebuild me again, rebuild me again
Rebuild me again, rebuild me again

Can you see me, can you feel me, can you touch me, can you rebuild me.
Can you see me, can you feel me, can you touch me, can you rebuild me.

Can you rebuild me so I can walk again
Rejuvenate my love, so I can breathe again
Can you open the door so that my heart can beat again
Can you rebuild me, rebuild me again, rebuild me again
Rebuild me again, rebuild me again

What's on My Mind

Written By: Kjae (Keith Kelsaw)

1st Verse
Hey, yeah yeah, ey, ooh, ooh
Baby girl what you doing when you work that thang,
work that thang yeah
You got my mind on “E”
And I can’t think of nothing to say yeah
Somebody come help me
Cause I need a line to quote to this lady
She’s mind blowing, fantastic drastic
Crashed from heaven she’s priceless can’t cash it

B-sec
She is the Venus star on the boulevard
I want to park my car not very far far far from her
Thoughts ring out like my mind left earth
I’m moving to fast
I gotta slow down so I say STOP
As I get my thoughts together in form of a love letter

Chorus
Can I say what’s on my mind (ay)
Damn cause you fine (ay), girl I’ma find you (ay)
Cause you’re the real deal kinda girl (ay)
Give the keys to your world (ay)
So I can unlock you (ay) Ooh
Baby girl don’t be shy (ay) don’t say no (ay)
just press go (ay)
I gonna take you on a love boat
when you listen to my love note

2nd Verse
My love note is a song for you girl
cause you rock my world
And you just in time to,
get a front row seat for the time of your life
Cause that’s what I plan to give to you girl I know
I sound confident but as long as you know
if I can have any girl I choose you

B-sec
She is the Venus star on the boulevard
I want to park my car not very far far far from her
Thoughts ring out like my mind left earth
I’m moving to fast
I gotta slow down so I say STOP – that’s better
So I get my thoughts together in form of a love letter

Chorus
Can I say what’s on my mind (ay)
Damn cause you fine (ay), girl I’ma find you (ay)
Cause you’re the real deal kinda girl (ay)
Give the keys to your world (ay)
So I can unlock you (ay) Ooh
Baby girl don’t be shy (ay) don’t say no (ay)
just press go (ay)
I gonna take you on a love boat
when you listen to my love note

Bridge
Can I say what’s on my mind
Can I get a piece of your time
Can I get a day ay ay ay ay ay
Gonna take you away ay ay ay ay ay
Do it up like pay day ay ay ay ay
Girl we can be lazy ay ay ay ay
Cause I know that I’ve seen you somewhere
In my dreams
Maybe there you’re the heartbeat that I need yea, oh

Chorus
Can I say what’s on my mind (ay)
Damn cause you fine (ay), girl I’ma find you (ay)
Cause you’re the real deal kinda girl (ay)
Give the keys to your world (ay)
So I can unlock you (ay) Ooh
Baby girl don’t be shy (ay) don’t say no (ay)
just press go (ay)
I gonna take you on a love boat
when you listen to my love note

Vamp
Can I say what’s on my mind (mind mind mind mind)
Can I say what’s on my mind (mind mind mind mind)
Can I say what’s on my mind (mind mind mind mind mind)
I’ma take you on a love boat when you listen to my love note, yeah
