You can't put Chelsea Shag in a box - she's made up her own. It's not just pop - it's jazz, blues, R&B, and soul all in one - it's everything that's transcended through her. An enamoring energy both on and offstage, this twenty-three year old's music moves within you. Her words create stories and her voice and music bring life to them delivering a unique experience to each listener. An invigorating sound to your ears, Chelsea's voice vibrates through you with soul, edge, and smoothness.
From listening to her biggest influences and putting her hands on any instrument she could, Chelsea's been developing her sound since she started playing her electric guitar at age eleven. Moving to Atlanta in 1996 from Novia Scotia, Canada, Chelsea developed the soul of the Southeast and you can feel it when you hear her music. With so much to offer vocally, it's refreshing to hear a strong singer-songwriter play guitar with such ease and originality. After studying jazz guitar at the Atlanta Institute of Music, Chelsea began winning hearts performing throughout Atlanta breaking the cliche that only men can rock a guitar. With her looper machine, sweet tones, beat boxing, and kick drum riding the rhythm - her live performance is not to be missed.
It is that time yet again where Chelsea evolves in front of our eyes and we are happy to announce that she is in the works of finishing her first record with a full band. This new element only magnifies her more as the artist she is, so keep your eyes peeled and ears ready!
Things are about to get funky.
