Chelsea Williams’ new album, Beautiful & Strange, out now!
CHELSEA WILLIAMS‘ SOPHOMORE RELEASE, BEAUTIFUL & STRANGE, OUT NOW!
Chelsea Williams new album dissects relationship dynamics and examines the very notion of destiny. To illustrate, her charming, confident songwriting and airy, nuanced vocals maintain an underlying current of optimism. Produced by husband and longtime collaborator Ross Garren (Ben Folds, Bon Iver). As a result Beautiful and Strange expands on Williams’ previous work with a more striking production and a bolder, fuller sound. Her diverse musical background and affinity for film scores translates into a cinematic collection of songs. The tracks strike a perfect balance between whimsical spontaneity and mature sophistication. Williams incorporates everything from: toy piano and singing saws to sweeping string arrangements and a symphony of harmonicas and keys. Beautiful and Strange is equal parts reckless abandon and heartfelt sincerity.
In Chelsea’s own words:
“My record is officially out[.] I am so excited for you guys to hear it [because] [w]e poured so much passion and hard work into this little music baby this past year and now the time has come to set it free.”
