Kelsey Lu May Be A Classically Trained Musician, But She’s A Rising Fashion Star
Kelsey McJunkins grew up in Charlotte, North Carolina to parents who are also musically inclined; her mother a pianist, her father a percussionist. Part Nigerian, part African-American, Lu started her professional career in orchestras, and eventually as a cellist for
Florence and The Machine. In addition to her solo career, Lu has played instruments and lent her vocals for a surplus of artists; she’s worked with Dev Hynes, Kelela, Tinie Tempah, and André 3000. And she’s hitting the road for a European tour in October. Of collaborating, Lu believes it’s a chance to share her art but learn about herself, as well.
