Chelsea Williams

Chelsea Williams made a name for herself as a musician in Los Angeles in a less than traditional way. Though she started out on the club and coffee shop circuit, she learned that she could make more money - and fans, for that matter - by playing on the streets. But unlike the typical image one conjures up when hearing that tag, she did something unheard of: in just a few years Chelsea sold over 75,000 CDs on her own - a number that eclipses many other artists with major industry backing.

She became the darling of the street and captured the hearts of locals, tourists and fans from around the world and at the same time gained an impressive following of the Hollywood elite. Among those who have taken note of her talents, and stopped by to see her play are Adam Sandler, Sheryl Crow, LeAnn Rimes, and Ron Howard to name only a few. Crosby, Stills, and Nash even sent Chelsea flowers in appreciation of the quality of her cover of "Helplessly, Hoping" they found on YouTube.

And just when you think you’ve got her pegged, Chelsea can be found performing with the Salty Suites, has had John McEuen of Nitty Gritty Dirt band fame sit in with her from time to time and seamlessly transitions from indie, folk, pop or rock into bluegrass mode on occasion.

Expanding into commercial, television and film work as a vocalist and songwriter her work has aired in programming on a variety of networks including ABC Family, NBC and FOX. Chelsea is now in the process of writing and recording her newest solo album of the pop/rock variety scheduled for major release later this year.
