Chelsea Berry will lead us in a celebration the Christmas season with a performance in the First Congregational Church sanctuary. She will perform Christmas music as well as some of her own wonderful songs. Special guests will be on hand to add to the festivities.
Chelsea is a singer-songwriter with the edge, power, and finesse of legends. Her presence has been described by listeners as “compelling… she draws the entire house into her world like moths to a flame.” As a vocalist and performer, she evokes the style of artists such as Cheryl Crow, Eva Cassidy, KD Lang, and Melissa Etheridge. Born and raised in Alaska, she now makes her home in NYC.
Berry has appeared on the cover of Boston magazines such as The Noise and Northshore Magazine. She has been featured multiple times on Boston’s 92.5 The River and Sirius XM’s The Loft as well as dozens of local stations from Maine to Florida. She has played Boston’s House of Blues, Carnegie Hall in New York City, the Shalin Liu in Rockport, MA, Eddie’s Attic in Atlanta, World Cafe Live in Philadelphia and many more. She has opened for many artists such as Chris Isaak, Mavis Staples, Belinda Carlisle, Roger McGuinn, and Tom Chapin.
Berry’s newest full length album, “Wanderbird”, was released this September. It was recorded, mixed, and mastered in NYC with producer Adam Rhodes. The instrumentation and arrangements are a mindful and energetic extension of Berry’s own music and performance.
A voice of remarkable power and control with a joyous soul. Brave and bright, Chelsea Berry is the real thing.
