Kelsey Rottiers has been touring her self- titled full length album, Kelsey Rottiers & the Rising Tide (think Ingrid Michaelson meets Brandi Carlile), released in March of 2011, for the past year in Michigan, Chicago, Ohio, and Nashville. “Red Wonder Boots,” her Artprize entry from last year, placed among the top 500 songs in the world in a 2010 Billboard Songwriting Contest. And in August 2012, “How to Love” was placed in an episode of “The Real L Word” on Showtime. Her newest work, however, a 6 song EP named after the first track, “Bear Hope” tackles a much greater heartbreak. After learning about the global crisis of sex trafficking through companies like The Red Thread Movement and Women At Risk International, Kelsey decided to join the fight. Her goal is to turn attention to the horrible reality of sexual slavery in the U.S. 50% of the proceeds for Bear Hope will be donated to Women At Risk International. Bear Hope is set to be released October October 14th!
