"Artist Spotlight: Chelsea Hughes"

There are so many artists out there that can only really perform at their best in the studio; but when you see and hear Chelsea play live, you KNOW that she is talented because she sounds even better on stage than she does in the studio..."

I was born and raised in Columbus, Georgia. I took classical piano lessons for ten years and hated almost every moment of them. I learned how to count rhythm, read music, and recreate musical masterpieces written hundreds of years ago. I learned the mathematics behind creating music that is pleasing to the ears and feasible to the fingers, but in spite of my otherwise basic training, by the time I finished taking lessons and continued playing for my own pleasure, I felt as though I was taking away more knowledge than even my instructor could have imparted to me.

I've always felt that my passion for and perception of music is very different than most; to me, music is an art form. I like to think of my music as a way by which I can reach out to people and show them that someone can take the same anger, frustration, sorrow or happiness that they've experienced and turn it into something beautiful, unique and unforgettable. Music is nothing but a canvas of emotions, and people want to identify with an artist that they perceive to be real.

I began writing music as a teenager, when I was already engrossed in learning 20 page classical pieces for state festivals and competitions. It always took my instructor by surprise when she would notice, halfway through an intricate Mozart piece, that I was no longer playing Mozart, but a clever rendition that I improvised simply because I had forgotten the next measure.

Aside from classical influences like Franz Lizst and Ludwig Van Beethoven, I have to admit that my unique mixture of writing styles come from a variety of artists including Brand New, Maroon 5, The Postal Service, John Mayer and Paramore. Though still engrossed in the recording process of my debut EP "High Speed Hollywood Tragedy" at Star Motel Studios in downtown Macon, I’m already dreaming of other projects, writing new music, and prospecting a wide variety of southeastern venues for a summer 2011 tour.
