Driven by a passion for storytelling and committed to keeping the classic country sound alive, Chelsey’s performances are a high-energy journey fueled by strong vocals, creative lyrics and catchy melodies.
Chelsey grew up on a small cattle farm in Massachusetts, and cut her teeth playing across New England before moving down to Nashville, TN. "People love to tell me that since I'm from the north, I don't know what country is; but there's a little devil in me that loves to prove them wrong". From a young age, Chelsey always knew that she was destined to be on stage. She remembers singing out loud to Shania Twain and Bruce Springsteen from her carseat in the back of her moms old Land Rover, and then taking her "show" to her makeshift stage; whether it was a stack of haybales bales or her Dad's flatbed trailer.
Her debut EP Nothin' Better To Do was released in 2017, a few months before she packed up and headed south for Music City. Since she touched down in Nashville, she has focused on her songwriting and has been hard at work preparing for the release of her second EP. "I've had the opportunity to work with so many talented writers and musicians down here, and each and every interaction I've had has helped inspire this new EP. Moving to Nashville was one of the best decisions I ever made and as much as I miss New England, I think I needed to leave my hometown to truly figure out who I am, what I'm here to do, and what I have to say. These new tracks really depict a time in my life when I was coming out of my cocoon and establishing myself as an artist."
Since moving to Nashville, Chelsey has had the opportunity to play iconic songwriting venues such as The Bluebird Cafe, The Listening Room and the late Douglas Corner. She has also been on festival bills with artists such as Luke Combs, Shenandoah, Brett Eldredge and Phil Vassar to name a few, and continues to tour across the country playing to audiences of 20 to 20,000.
“Listening to Chelsey sing conjures up images of old Nashville. Chelsey is an old soul speaking through a 27 year old. Her writing is thoughtful and clever, and she delivers her message with apparent honesty. You can't help but feel Chelsey is doing exactly what she was meant to do, and what she needs to do." – Carolyn Kruse (Country 102.5 radio personality)
