Who is Kellie Loder?

Kellie Loder is a Newfoundland-based singer-songwriter who plays drums, guitar, and piano. They have three albums: The Way (issued in 2009), Imperfections & Directions (published in 2010), and Benefit of the Doubt (released in 2018). They gained critical acclaim in Canada, including a Juno Award nomination, thanks to a voice characterized as “strong yet peaceful and heartfelt” by The Telegram of St. John’s.

Loder was studying nursing at Memorial University of Newfoundland’s Grenfell Campus when they launched The Way in August 2009, having composed their first song at the age of 16 about a cousin who died in a road accident. Loder went on to win a talent hunt organized by YC Newfoundland, a Christian youth convention, later that year.

Loder was granted time with music business and production specialists as part of the award, and they assisted them create Imperfections & Directions, which was released at the 2010 YC Newfoundland. At the 2012 Juno Awards, the album was nominated for Contemporary Christian/Gospel Album of the Year. In 2011, Loder was nominated for three MusicNL awards, including Gospel Artist of the Year.

Loder’s music career is unique in that it began with Contemporary Christian Music (CCM); most young musicians prefer music genres like country and pop, which are thought to be more commercially successful.

Loder has stated that they picked CCM because it gives their music a purpose; however, they have since moved their attention to mainstream pop and rock music, claiming that they still produce music from a spiritual perspective but want to reach a wider audience.

Loder has come out as queer and non-binary, and she uses pronouns that are gender-neutral.
