Saturday, Nov. 18, 7:30 p.m.—BRANDON— Chelsea Berry is a singer-songwriter with the edge, power, and finesse of legends. As a vocalist and performer, she evokes the style of artists such as Cheryl Crow, Janis Joplin, KD Lang, and Melissa Etheridge. Berry returns to Brandon Music on Saturday, Nov. 18 at 7:30 p.m. where co-owner/operator, Edna Sutton, explained that Berry’s first performance at the venue was powerful. Sutton sees all the acts at Brandon Music but doesn’t get “goosebumps” often — and Berry gave them to her. Sutton said “Berry grabbed the audience from the start with a stunningly powerful opening number that had the crowd eating out of her hand the rest of the night.” They then gave her a resounding standing ovation, not wanting the night to end.
Her music transcends its indie rock roots and touches listeners with its poetic lyric, bold melodies, and pure, clear, powerful vocals. Singer-songwriter Livingston Taylor calls her vocals “world class” and says she has “A voice of remarkable power and control with a joyous soul. Brave and bright, Chelsea Berry is the real thing.” A favorite among venue owners up and down the East Coast, Berry’s beautiful voice and commanding stage presence has brought her across the U.S. as regular support for Livingston and others as well as headliner of her own shows.
Berry is currently working on her fourth full studio album in NYC with producer Adam Rhodes. This original full band album is being tracked in Brooklyn and Manhattan with seasoned and talented players such as Alex Hayes (bass) and Matt Musty (drums; of “Grace Potter and the Nocturnals”); the instrumentation and arrangements in the record are a mindful and energetic extension of Berry’s own music and performance. The record is scheduled to be released this fall.
Concert tickets are $20. Venue is BYOB. Call 802-247-4295 for more information.
