Chelsey Whild’s sound may be reminiscent of New York City, but the Alabama native still resides in Birmingham where she uses catchy piano hooks to bring commentary on her city, her people and her feelings soaring to life. There’s an initial air of ambiance and ease to her songs but, when you listen graciously, you can hear the dark undertones of a woman unafraid to dig into the human condition.

Whild has produced and self-released two projects: “Fire” and “What I Need.” Both are available on all major purchasing and streaming platforms.

You can find Chelsey playing shows throughout the southeast this fall.
