Biography

“A voice of remarkable power and control with a joyous soul. Brave and bright, Chelsea Berry is the real thing.” -Livingston Taylor

Chelsea Berry is a singer/songwriter with incredible edge, power, and finesse. Her presence has been described by listeners as “compelling… she draws the entire house into her world like moths to a flame.” Born and raised in Alaska, she now makes her home on Boston’s North Shore.

Chelsea has begun to attract the attention of radio stations, magazines, and venues all over the Northeast.. her music, rooted in the genres of folk and rock, has recently taken a turn for alternative rock. The importance of the lyric is still emphasized, but her music (with the help of her truly fantastic band) now chugs along with grooves and beats reminiscent of tracks by Alanis Morrissette, Sheryl Crow, and Florence and the Machine.

While Chelsea frequently supports artists such as Chris Isaak, Livingston Taylor, Chris Smither, Cheryl Wheeler, and Marshall Crenshaw, she has begun to develop such a strong following of her own in the Northeast that the shows she headlines have begun selling out regularly.

Lyrics

Lonely Being Lonely

Written By: Chelsea Berry

Is your secret worth keeping/ your treasure worth seeking
Is it holy
Do your independent choices/affect those without voices
Is it lonely
Can you say you're truly happy telling lies and making errands up
To cover all the tracks you've left to and from his bed
And those footprints in the dirt/ they trace the pain and hurt of the story
Lonely being lonely

Now his make believe's your business and his frailty your weakness
Does it haunt you
When he tells you she is cruel/ do you smile and play the fool
Because he wants you
And would you give up everything/ you've worked for your whole life
To live with him in poverty where no one knows your name
And without cover of the night/ would you still be the light he is drawn to

When you lie in his arms
Oh, you cry
And beg him for his love to be yours only
Lonely being lonely
