Twenty-five year old singer-songwriter Kiesza Rae Ellestad--better known simply as Kiesza--has steadily stolen my heart ever since I listened to her 2014 album "Hideaway." Not only did her music peak at the number 1 position for both Belgium and UK music charts, this multi-instrumentalist techno-steam-pop artist reaches her audience with a bewitching zest of both heartfelt and hypnotizing vocal and lyrical delivery. Yesterday she performed her hit Hideaway on The Ellen Show and rocked the stage with her entourage of dancers. On YouTube her video has reached over 100 million views in just a matter of months.

Kiesza possesses a style that tends to combine classy androgynism with charming quirkiness--from her brightly framed glasses to her sophisticated tuck and roll updos. 

Still not convinced that viral pop sensation Kiesza should be added to your playlist or Instagram feed? Here are 6 completely random quotes from the songstress that might intrigue you enough for that follow.

"I invented the pomelette...

It can be described in short as a pizza omelette, but there is a very specific, patented technique to making it that only I know."

"As a kid, I didn't know how to use my voice...

So listening to people [like Etta James] made it seem impossible for me to reach."

"I don't get tired of singing my album...

I'm just so excited to share it."

 "Life just unfolds...

And you end up just where you want to be."

"I started as a ballerina...

And I was in the Navy."

"Be really true to who you are...

But I believe that's a hard answer to give someone when you're still looking."
