Explaining Kenzie McCarter's sound is a difficult task. Her lyrics are vulnerable, giving those who listen a glimpse into heartbreak, redemption, and her own personal experiences. Her roots appear to be country pop upon first impression, however as one continues listening she expands beyond that with bluesy notes and edgy melodies. An 18 year old Pennsylvania native, McCarter is energetic and genuine, as her music is sure to leave an imprint on the soul's of her listeners. 

She's performed everywhere from Penn State's THON at the Bryce Jordan Center and Knoebels Amusement Park to Local Relay for Life Events and Rotary International. However, the size of the stage or crowd does not effect her performance, she brings her passion and wit with her wherever she goes. 

Her debut single "Back to You" is a catchy song about that person you can't quite quit. She explains that all her writing comes from a personal place whether it be her experiences or the experiences of someone she knows, "I think the only way to explain it is, if you made me feel something, whether it be pain or joy, I wrote about it. I'm always writing about the people around me or the feelings that everyone has felt but no one dares to describe." She followed this single up with another track off her EP, "Carousel."

Recently, Kenzie released "People Change", a collaboration with JimiJack. She wrote the song during one of the toughest times of her life, "People Change came from a year of pain and hurt. I realized that people, in fact, do change. It can be a tough pill to swallow but at the end of the day, the memories will always remain the same. 

Kenzie has so much more in store, so don't miss out on her journey.
