“A voice of remarkable power and control with a joyous soul. Brave and bright, Chelsea Berry is the real thing.”
Chelsea Berry is a singer-songwriter with the edge, power, and finesse of legends. Her presence has been described by listeners as “compelling… she draws the entire house into her world like moths to a flame.” As a vocalist and performer, she evokes the style of artists such as Cheryl Crow, Janis Joplin, KD Lang, and Melissa Etheridge.
Singer-songwriter Livingston Taylor calls her vocals “world class” and says of Berry, “A voice of remarkable power and control with a joyous soul. Brave and bright, Chelsea Berry is the real thing.” A favorite among venue owners up and down the East coast, Berry’s beautiful voice and commanding stage presence has brought her across the U.S. as regular support for Livingston and others as well as headliner of her own shows. Born and raised in Alaska, she now makes her home on Boston’s North Shore.
Her music transcends its indie rock roots and touches listeners with its poetic lyric, bold melodies, and pure, clear, powerful vocals. Singer/songwriter Chris Smither says Berry is “..Great, talented, beautiful … her future is so bright you’re gonna have to wear shades.”
Berry has appeared on the cover of Boston magazines such as The Noise and Northshore Magazine. She has been featured multiple times on Boston’s 92.5 The River and Sirius XM’s The Loft as well as dozens of local stations from Maine to Florida. She has played venues such as Boston’s House of Blues, the Shalin Liu in Rockport, MA, Eddie’s Attic in Atlanta, and Carnegie Hall in New York City. She has opened for artists such as Chris Isaak, Mavis Staples, Belinda Carlisle, Roger McGuinn, Cheryl Wheeler, and more.
Vocalist and pianist Nicole Zuraitis blends bountiful songwriting skills, an effervescent presence, and dazzling vocals in a consummate package that has thrilled audiences across Manhattan and across the world. Nicole is the 2016 New York City Songwriting Competition Coffee Music Project Winner, 2015 second runner-up in the Sarah Vaughan International Jazz Vocal Competition, and the 2014 Herb Albert ASCAP Young Composer Awards Winner. A New York staple, she has headlined at the Blue Note (NYC) and maintains residencies at the 55 Bar, Rockwood Music Hall (with the Dan Pugach Nonet), and Redeye Grill.
Audiences love Nicole’s limitless enthusiasm, but that’s only part of her story; only part of her talent. Nicole’s new recording, Hive Mind (Dot Time Records), chronicles themes close to her heart, including an unflinching love of family and friends and a heartbreaking and courageous dedication to people in her life who suffer from mental health issues.
While pursuing a career that has spanned jazz, pop, and classical, Nicole has collaborated with Cyrille Aimee, Rachel Z, Melanie Safka, Mike Maz Maher, Thana Alexa, Dave Stryker, Livingston Taylor, Tom Chapin, Don Braden, Omar Hakim , Elise Testone and Bernard Purdie. She’s performed at festivals nationwide, and has released three singles and recorded three albums: 2013’s Pariah Anthem and 2009’s Spread The Word, both releases featuring the cream of New York’s jazz hierarchy. Her new album Hive Mind will release internationally in late October.
