Undoubtedly one of the hardest working female artists in the reggae music business today; Chelsea Stewart with her Momager and street team have sold over 30, 000 physical copies of her original singles and EPs combined on the streets of Toronto.
This globetrotting, Juno Nominated independent artist has performed on four of the seven continents. Wearing several hats as writer, composer, producer, creative director and promoter, Chelsea successfully hand selects other talented artists in Toronto to be her opening acts for her own annual live music series ‘An Intimate Evening with Chelsea Stewart’.
From Rototom Sunsplash in Europe, to Reggae Sumfest in Jamaica, to arenas in South Africa, Chelsea is continuously making moves and making people move with her style of reggae music worldwide. Just coming off of her first African tour, Chelsea has been melting hearts country to country with her sweet lollipop voice laced with enough sugar to help make the bitterness of life's struggles a bit sweeter.
During the fourth quarter of 2019, Chelsea Stewart released an eleven track self-titled reggae album much to the delight of her loyal fans. This Juno nominated singer-songwriter has given us an album that can be easily defined as a musical history lesson of sorts. Beginning with nyabinghi drumming and dub poetry, moving on to mento, ska, rocksteady, reggae, and incorporating (last but definitely not least) dancehall. Her album includes instrumentation from GRAMMY winning reggae legends Sly & Robbie and is a musical tribute and a treat, with something for everybody. Speaking on various issues of today and moving us through the many moods of love, this beautiful body of work deserves your attention and a spot on your playlist.
Watch out world, this album has arrived to define Chelsea Stewart in this musical space as a savvy creative and versatile songstress.
