Chelsea Reed has been building a unique and important identity in the alternative-pop scene since her musically formative years growing up in Newcastle, NSW. Her debut single ‘Snow Covered Hill’, produced in collaboration with Josh Schuberth (Josh Pyke, Dustin Tebbutt), was released in 2013 to great acclaim and enthusiasm. The strength of that success behind her, Chelsea spent the following years developing an exciting new voice as a songwriter- using the warmth and folk sensibilities of ‘Snow Covered Hill’ as the foundation on which to build something even more sensational.
Her second single ‘I Want the World’ is daring and playful, affectionately touching on the music she has explored so far – whilst declaring itself as totally original, a new adventure. Bridging the divide between radio pop and indie darling, ‘I Want the World’ is suggestive of Regina Spektor and Bruno Mars – a sparkling, tenacious anthem to the art of keeping on.
Since the release of her debut EP in 2014, featuring the previously mentioned singles, Chelsea has been living in Toronto, Canada. She has been busy playing live shows, co-writing and working on her debut album with producer Dave Draves (Kathleen Edwards, Jim Bryson, Howe Gelb) in Ottawa.
The album is set for release in October 2017 and will be followed by a Canadian tour.
