Biography:

Raised outside of Toronto on a diet of Minnie Riperton, red wine and clove cigarettes, Chelsey Bennett is a rising singer and songwriter with a gift for providing a bona fide soulful performance.

2016 saw the first major release for Chelsey, with her original E.P., entitled “No End”. Since then Chelsey has gained momentum in the Toronto music scene and surrounding areas.
Currently, she holds a monthly residency at Poetry Jazz Cafe in Kensington Market that is regularly packed out the door with swaying patrons, as well as a stack of other shows anywhere with space for her piano. At the aforementioned shows, Chelsey is often flanked by a rotating roster of Toronto's most inventive and expressive jazz and R&B musicians.

When not delighting live audiences, Chelsey is a prolific composer. In 2016 she released her first E.P. , “No End” and has since been recording endlessly for a variety of new and innovative projects. Best listened to in a bar you stumbled into to avoid the snow just as you make contact with a smiling stranger. Find your way to one of her shows soon, before the venue has reached maximum capacity as it has before.

She has a lot planned for 2018. First and foremost are the most recently released videos of her performing originals at a studio in Toronto's east end.
She also plans to tour more of Canada than she ever has before, and embark on a full length album.


QUOTES

"When Ms. Bennett first stepped onto the Poetry stage, I realized that she had what most Canadian bands lack: Struggle, sense of urgency, & fire ??... Ms. Bennett & her band - showed up early & left late as if to say to her fans that this shit is real!"
-Sean Pascalle, Poetry Jazz Cafe, 2018
