Folk blues musician Kellen Saip at Wilde Oscar’s in Chilliwack May 17

Saip’s music gently fuses folk and blues with subtle undertones of faith and soul

Kellen Saip is an up-and-coming singer-songwriter from Ladner, who recently moved to Chilliwack.

“I’ve been blown away from the music scene here and have played a few venues already including Acoustic Emporium and Tractorgrease,” says Saip.

His next gig will be at Wilde Oscar’s on Wednesday, May 17, followed by a spot at the May Long Weekend TractoFest at Tractorgrease Café on May 20.

Saip’s music gently fuses folk and blues with subtle undertones of faith and soul that derived from his family gospel roots. His old soul but forever young mentality helps explore a melodic guitar sound mixed with organically adapting vocals. His lyrics and vocals together deliver an intimate experience that can one minute be sweet and silky like a fine wine and the next raspy and strong that hits you harder than a cheap shot of whiskey.

His songs tell of a journey of heartache, bliss, love lost and love gained that can be relatable to all hearts that are still beating.

Kellen recorded his latest EP, Take Me Away, with Cory Woodward from Lion, Bear, Fox, and has recently made it to the top ten regional in CBC Searchlight.
