Ep. 39: The Effect of Pop Culture on a Lost Generation:
“Non-Woke” Millennial Kelsey Merritt

Join Suzanne and her assistant Kelsey Merritt, who’s in studio, to talk about how music and pop culture have changed over the years and ultimately produced a “lost”generation.

Kelsey is a music industry veteran, small business owner and a self-proclaimed “non-woke” millennial. She jumpstarted her music career at 16 years old as an artist for Radio Disney. Kelsey has shared the stage with a number of notable artists such as Brett Michaels of Poison, The Jonas Brothers, Vanilla Ice and Katy Perry.  She has written songs with members of *NSYNC, had a single chart at Top 40 radio, signed a record deal with Warner Music Group, spent five consecutive years on the popular Summer tour, the Vans Warped Tour and attended the prestigious Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA—all under the age of 25.

Kelsey’s music projects and works have been featured in The New York Times, Alternative Press Magazine, The Sun Sentinel, Substream Magazine, MTV and MTV2.

After taking a much needed break from the pressures of the music industry, Kelsey founded two successful businesses: an entertainment company and a social media and digital marketing company, Taking Care of Business. She continues to play music and manage her current cover band, The Silent Shout, in Ft. Lauderdale, FL.

Aside from her professional pursuits, Kelsey is a conservative millennial and political junkie who loves to cook, read, drink wine and travel. Watch Kelsey in action below!
