I've been a songwriter for pretty much my entire life. Recently, I started learning guitar and piano, and working with my brother Cam Gallant to learn about and practice music production. I release new songs on my YouTube channel, OfficialKelseyGallant, every few months. Click on the icons below to learn more about my songs!
As you might already know, I'm a teacher, and I love sharing my passions for writing and music with kids. It gives me great joy to see kids coming up with their own stories and songs, and I am always excited to see, read, or listen to something a child has created. If a child I know is interested in taking their project to the next level by publishing or producing it, I'm more than happy to help them through the process.
Come With Me
This song was created in July 2021 when my cousins were visiting. My 10-year-old cousin selected the guitar and drum loops, and his 6-year-old sister sang the background vocals in the chorus. They wanted me to be the singer and lyricist, so I improvised the lyrics and melody on the spot while listening to the instrumental track. My brother Cam Gallant did all of the mixing and producing.
These lyrics were written by a 10-year-old girl, who tasked me with developing the melody and music. She cited Selena Gomez's "Wolves" and Halsey's "Without Me", "Graveyard", and "You Should Be Sad" as example songs for the style she was going for. I found a music loop that had a similar sound to those songs, and built the song around that.
