Introducing where you have the inside scoop about Chelsea Rhae Childers

Since the age of thirteen, Chelsea Rhae Childers has been teaching herself guitar, and began to perform in high school at talent shows then moved on to playing at open mic nights and collaborative gigs at  local venues in college. As the voice for television commercials, creator of store jingle advertisements, and accomplished songwriter published on itunes, Chelsea’s music career led her all the way to performing thirteen shows in Los Angeles last year . She has one solo EP recorded, and is recording more soon. Her major influences are Edie Brickell, Stevie Nicks, Jewel, Alison Krause, Regina Spektor, Alanis Morissette, and Sherly Crow.Rooted in an intriguing partnership of folk/rock melodies, and anti-folk acoustic songs, this singer/songwriter manifests both sentiment and depth into her collection of straightforward and evocative tunes about love, loss, and ephemeral longing in a world of social constructs.

Her lyrics are equally eclectic, often taking the form of abstract narratives or first-person character studies, similar to short stories or vignettes put to song.  The layered palette of songs in her collection include highly original and passionate contemporary folk/rock arrangements that feature Childers’ progressive folk lyrical style, showcasing her talent for rich musical textures.
