ARTIST'S HOUSE: What are you currently working on?

KELLIE-ANNE POIRIER: An EP. I have 15 songs written, 5 produced and I need to work on a promo plan. All that needs money and I don’t, so I need to work with my own means.

ARTIST'S HOUSE: If you could share a stage with a star, who would it be and why?

KELLIE-ANNE POIRIER: Sia. Without any hesitations.

ARTIST'S HOUSE: Any advice for future artists?

KELLIE-ANNE POIRIER: Never give up on your dreams.

ARTIST'S HOUSE: What makes your heart sing?

KELLIE-ANNE POIRIER: It's an expression of a feeling or a situation. It’s both! I need something powerful that will bring emotions in me in order to write. It can be either a situation or a feeling. For example, my upcoming single talks about my move from Dubai to NYC. It’s a situation that brought feelings. And it inspired me to write. My single is called chance. Watch this space!
