Chelsea Nolan

Chelsea Nolan



Chelsea Nolan is an artist of sensational stature. Her voice warms listeners with powerful lush melodies whether she's performing her own material or reinventing the classics. She started vocalizing at a young age, first studying classical music from members of the Atlanta Opera. The sounds of Led Zeppelin and Etta James quickly inspired her to further her repertoire by combining sultry jazz licks and blues tones with driving rock grooves, which cultivated her powerful sound.

Chelsea was under the tutelage of Melissa Ellen at the prestigious Jan Smith Studios the years preceding her four-year achievement-based scholarship to attend Berklee College of Music fulltime in Boston. She also studied and wrote original songs under the guidance of guitar-genius Mark Cook, who received the ‘Just Plain Folks Best Blues Album of the Year” award for his 2001 and 2002 albums. Chelsea previously performed in public with The Cook-n-Blues Experience at local shindigs, and sings in a jam band at Georgia Tech’s very own Under the Couch venue when she is in the Atlanta area.

Currently directing Chelsea on voice principles and flexibility is Mark Baxter, whose clientele consist of Steven Tyler (Aerosmith), members of Trans-Siberian Orchestra, Johnny Rzeznik (Goo Goo Dolls), and many others. Chelsea has appeared on her own, accompanying herself, at various cafes and clubs; and, on the other hand, has always enjoyed lending her improvisational notes to various musical groups. The songstress is enjoying the beginnings of a prolific songwriting career at Berklee College of Music, while she continues crafting her ability with hopes to share her voice with the world. Her impeccable, raw talent is bound to inspire a handful of listeners to date.
