Born Youri Kelly Loiseau in Montréal, Canada, he collaborated for years behind the scenes as a singer and a songwriter. Inspired by a depth of love, life and community, he let Kelly Krow loose in 2017. Since then, his popularity has grown rapidly, evolving along with his supportive fan base. With over 1 million listens across streaming platforms, his 2018 hit “Say What” (featuring Haitian-American composer Mozart Louis) dives into the deep end of love without hesitation and without missing a beat or a synthed-out konpa melody.
Hit by inspiration in the midst of a packed house party or simply while hanging out with his family, Krow expresses a deft mix of his own feelings and other people’s resonance in his life. He describes his wife as his muse, absolutely central to his musical process, and his kids as his daily encouragement to shift perspectives and create no matter what.
