Chelsea Wilson is a soul singer powerhouse, having travelled the world performing and releasing her music. A voice rich with emotional power yet delivered effortlessly. It's a joy to hear. Her new single Real Love has already been spun on BBC, Delite Radio, Starpoint, Mi-Soul and Jazz FM in the UK, hitting #12 on the UK Soul Chart. It sits between Jamiroquai, Moloko and Chic.
Well known for her incredible flamboyant performances, Chelsea took some time to let us know what gigs she wouldnt miss.

Featuring some of my favourite local acts Emma Donovan and The Putbacks and The Meltdown this inaugural festival celebrates International Jazz Day at the Malthouse Theatre.
Hiatus Kaiyote - Max Watts May 30
Our very own neo soul legends don’t play that often so when they do, it is essential to be there. I have a suspicion they are working on new repertoire so hoping at this show to hear some new jams.
