With a New York State of Mind and a Midwestern Spirit, Singer/Songwriter iamchelseaiam uses her guitar to deliver melodic riffs, taking audiences on a rhythmic journey which has often been compared to Tracey Chapman. Her songwriting process always starts with lyrics in the notes area of her phone. Inspired human connection, every-day conversations & relationships are what drives iamchelseaiam to create music. Her tagline, The Urban Hippie, is not only a catchphrase but how she lives everyday life.
For the past 4 years, iamchelseaiam has been active in the NYC live music scene and has gone on to play CMJ Music Festival, The Iridium in Times Square (A3C Music Festival in Atlanta and The Bitter End in Lower Manhattan) as well as toured internationally.
Her next project “A Beautiful Mess” (Spring 2018), will be a new sound that is completely different from the singer/songwriter style of her previous release “Live At The Bitter End”. "Its definitely more rhythmic, heavy basslines and synth elements." says iamchelseaiam. The first single of the EP, “Pity Party”, was released in May 2017 and the music video debuted in fall 2017. Her last single "Paperdoll" was released in winter 2017. You can find iamchelseaiam playing around New York City at venues such as The Bitter End, Mercury Lounge, the prestigious Iridium NYC and SOB's.
