Biography

Kelsey Faludy, born in Colorado, has been playing the piano since the age of 4 and singing ever since she could speak. At 5 she began singing for her church, and started in community theater at 7.

She worked with 4 vocal coaches and in July ’03 she entered the Junior US Championships of the Performing Arts in L.A. competing in a wide spectrum of categories from musical theater to pop. She earned 1 bronze medal and 5 silver medals in singing and a gold medal for acting. Throughout the next few years, she sang at cancer benefits. Then, in 2004 she was cast in the film “Ichabod! The Legend of Sleepy Hollow.” This role earned her SAG card. The following summer she moved and began her high school sophomore year in Ohio.

She quickly established herself with lead roles in high school musicals and gained extensive training and experience in a highly competitive choir program. But the most significant outcome of the move was that it inspired her interest in music composition – she began writing her own songs, both the lyrics and accompaniment. In the summer of 2006 she began recording a few of her original songs at Ante Up Audio, a studio in downtown Cleveland. The EP is completed and her songs are getting thousands of plays on her My Space website. Individual songs will be available in May for download on www.kelseyfaludy.com.

Her most recent summer concerts were at the Winchester in Lakewood, Ohio and the House of Blues in Cleveland. On August 15, 2007, Kelsey won the featured event on WEOL AM 930 morning show. And in January 2008 one of her songs was featured on Cleveland Q104.

Kelsey is completing her freshman year at University of Dayton where she is studying vocal performance. She was recently accepted into Berklee College of Music, the renowned school for the study of contemporary music, and will begin attending this coming September. She’ll be back in the studio in March to complete recording two of her latest songs, the rock infused ‘Numb’ and the reflective, ‘Naïve.’

Lyrics

Fragile

Written By: Kelsey Faludy and Michael Seifert

She laughs too hard at stupid jokes
She likes to put limes in her coke
She always dresses to impress
She's an organized mess

Others wonder how she'll make it through
She needs someone to hold on to
She's having trouble gripping
Her fingertips are slipping

Oh Oh how the tables keep on turning
She hates the lessons she is learning

She's looking for
Something that she's never found before
No matter what she seems to find
Somehow she's just not satisfied

She drives with all her windows down
She may hate noise but she loves sound
Her confidence is thinning
Somehow she's still grinning

She just can't make good decisions
Ends up in head on collisions
On serendipity she's counting
Cause right now she is drowning

Oh Oh how the tables keep on turning
She hates the lessons she is learning

She's looking for
Something that she's never found before
No matter what she seems to find
Somehow she's just not satisfied

Take it back
Let go
It's not worth hurting for
There's so much more
Don't lose yourself in misery
You'll find empathy
Search your tender soul
Though it's grown cold
In time you'll find your fragile heart heals easily
And always know you're not alone

She's looking for
Something that she's never found before
No matter what she seems to find
Somehow she's just not satisfied

She's looking for
Something that she's never found before
No matter what she seems to find
Somehow she's just not satisfied

She's looking for
Something that she's never found before
No matter what she seems to find
Somehow she's just not satisfied

Waiting

Written By: Kelsey Faludy

As I was driving down the highway I looked through the window at the cars that passed by me
And I hoped I'd see you
Yeah I hoped it'd be you

As I was sitting alone last Friday
Waiting for my phone to start ringing beside me
I hoped it'd be you
Yeah I hoped it'd be you

All of the hoping the anticipating
Just kept me waiting and waiting and waiting
For it to be you
But it'd never be you

As I was praying down as I lay me
I started asking for someone to save me
And I prayed it'd be you
Yeah I prayed it'd be you

As I was watching this one couple walking
I envied their hands all entwined through their talking
And my hands felt so lonely dangling beside me
And I needed you
Yeah I needed you

All of my dreaming is not deviating
It just keeps me waiting and hurting and hating
Cause it'd never come true
It'd never be me and you

As you are sitting there wondering thinking
Of who might be thinking of you
I wish you'd hope it'd be me
