Profile: Kelsea McLean

by Jane Ledwell

Students at Morell High School where choral leader Kelsea McLean is music teacher say she sings when she teaches. She admits she’s been accused of being “singsongy.” “I don’t think I’m a ray of sunshine,” she says, “or even all that optimistic—it’s just the delivery!” She laughs, melodically.

Why Anything?

Talking Bands
by James Evan Ceretti

Safe Spaces

Safe Spaces
Element and Broadbent II

Element and Broadbent’s sophomore album Safe Spaces is an ode to Millennials. It is about things they say, and the way they act (whether they know it or not). It isn’t a criticism, but merely an observation of a generation that really has no identity, according to the duo, and is more known for material things and being PC.

The album was recorded in the summer of 2017 in

Ashley Condon
