Chelsea Wilson is a Melbourne based vocalist, songwriter, broadcaster and DJ. Chelsea grew up listening to rhythm and blues courtesy of her Dad’s record collection. But it was falling in love with jazz at age fifteen and in particular with the great voices of Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday and Sarah Vaughn that inspired Chelsea to become a vocalist and led her to studying at the Queensland Conservatorium of Music. After completing her music degree, Chelsea earned her performance stripes overseas, completing seven 6-month international residency contracts across Japan, Indonesia, Thailand, The UAE, The USA and The Caribbean performing over 280 shows per year. After relocating to Melbourne Chelsea collated her experiences into her debut EP Bitterness and took up the post as Music and Interviews Manager at iconic Melbourne station PBS FM.
Recently Chelsea supported Macy Gray on her 2015 Australian tour, headlined the Arts Centre Stage at the Australasian World Music Expo, performed at the sell out Women of Soul show at SummerSalt Festival and debuted her solo cabaret show I Hope You’ll Be Very Unhappy Without Me – The Cabaret at the opening night of the Melbourne Cabaret Festival. Chelsea also produces and presents weekly jazz radio program Jazz Got Soul on PBS 106.7FM, writes the odd music review on her blog and drinks copious amounts of Twinnings English Breakfast Tea.
