WESTERN AUSTRALIA’S NEW GOLDEN GIRL
2013 Golden Guitar winner Chelsea Basham’s brilliant debut album ‘I Make My Own Sunshine’ has critics raving and country fans adopting this WA native. Since its release in August it has spawned three hit singles and two #1 videos on Country Music Channel (CMC).
Music critic Bernard Zuel described Chelsea’s album as “genuinely soulful country” in Sydney’s Sun Herald and Melbourne’s The Age. Brisbane’s Courier Mail proclaimed “Basham has talent and a mellow soulful voice somewhere between Trisha Yearwood and The Dixie Chick’s Natalie Maines”.
In January Chelsea was awarded the Golden Guitar for ‘Best New Talent of the Year’ at the CMAA Country Music Awards of Australia and she’s a finalist in the 2013 APRA Professional Development Award which was won by Gotye in 2009 .
Chelsea Basham melds country traditions with broader influences. She’s bright and upbeat, a songwriter of merit, an artist of substance and an engaging live performer.
After recent appearances on the CMAA Country Music Awards of Australia and CMC Rocks The Hunter, Chelsea returns home to WA for her first shows since the release of her celebrated debut album.
