Born and raised in Nova Scotia, Canada, Chelsea moved to Atlanta in 1996 where she developed the soul of the Southeast that can be heard in her music. After studying jazz guitar at the Atlanta Institute of Music, Chelsea began winning hearts performing throughout Atlanta and breaking through the feminine clichés. She is reinventing the image of females in music through her display of strong and unique songwriting with complex but catchy guitar style that she has been developing since the age of 11. Her live set is evocative of the spirit of the late 60’s. A funky groove, a reckless abandon, blistering solos, flower power, sunshine and rebellion. Her background vocal section flawlessly accentuates her command of the blues guitar, timbres fuse to create arrangements that are naturalistic and free spirited but simultaneously precise and intentional. The listener feels refreshed, invigorated and liberated, like a blue jay bathing in a fountain, singing sweet and sublime in a summer evening.
After the successful release of their debut EP, Off, which charted their first single “Giuseppe” to number 2 on both Spotify’s US and Global Viral charts, it was evident Trash Panda had created something new and fresh. The Off EP came into being in the minds of Patrick Taylor and Mitch Standfield in summer of 2016 adding Max Hewett on soon after to complete the trio. The band is known for their DIY attitude and their insistence upon home-recording and their new LP is no exception. It was recorded in a house lovingly dubbed “the treehouse” just north of Atlanta, where the band exercises its belief in capturing good energy over technical perfection. Over a million plays on Spotify later, the band has finished recording a new record blending together psychedelic rock and indie, even soulful sensibilities with nonchalance and a rebellious spirit sometimes fusing punk and soul in an off alchemy of ferociousness and stoned malaise. Their live show at one moment can be aggressive and wild and transfuse to a calm, hip-shaking spacey groove.
Carly Gibson and Hannah Zale have joined forces, and they are leaving their mark on the Georgia music scene as Indie Rock supergroup, THE PUSSYWILLOWS (TPW). Individually, these women are exceptionally strong performers and songwriters; together, they are positively formidable. The Pussywillows, in short, are: sweet and savory; sultry and fresh; pure. The Pussywillows are perfect harmony in motion. Balance is their greatest quality; they weave in and out of each other’s melodies seamlessly. Many moments throughout their set listeners cannot tell who is singing which line, creating an almost subconscious, fascinating game. Their music is beautiful yet haunting, soft at times but always taking the listener back to a hard beating pulse surrounded by nasty electric guitar. The best friends push and pull each other and their audiences through intricately constructed sonic spaces showcasing carefully cultivated lyrics that both evoke and provoke listeners into a daydream in which you can simultaneously catch cotton candy by sticking out your tongue and stomp proudly through alligator infested swamps with high-heeled leather boots on. Sass and class, and a little something special are what this duet processes. You can find them playing around America as a true duo and as a full rock band. Although not sisters by blood, the young women’s connection and voices suggest otherwise. TPW are recording their debut EP in 2017 with producer Patrick Taylor of Trash Panda.
