ABOUT CHELSIE YOUNG
The Canadian country music scene welcomes its newest emerging artist, Chelsie Young - originally from the Bigstone Cree Nation in Northern, AB now making her presence felt in Edmonton, AB from where she continues to wow audiences everywhere with her natural vocal talent.
Her most recent release "Ain't No Man" was released in October 2021 and went on to chart at #8 on the Indigenous Music Countdown. It is a song about domestic abuse and from the perspective of a woman fed up with being in an abusive relationship. A topic Chelsie herself knows all too well about as she is a domestic abuse survivor.
Her previous release entitled "All To You" is currently in rotation on The Indigiverse Ch 165 on SiriusXM and also radio stations across Canada and the USA. The song was co-written with Richard Woodman of The Richard Woodman Band based out of Kinuso, AB and is about a new couple hesitant to jump into the relationship and go "all in". But then they realize their connection is stronger than they both thought.
Chelsie has been singing since she was 8 and has performed on stages throughout Western Canada - but it was in late January of 2017 when she became an "overnight sensation" after a friend posted a video of her singing "Don't Toss Us Away" by Patty Loveless; which had over 50 thousand views in a matter of hours. It was then that she caught the eye of so many people around the world and since then her fanbase has grown exponentially. In mid-May 2021 her latest video hit 1 million views in 4 days.
Chelsie is a singer-songwriter with a natural gift to write meaningful and touching songs. In her spare time she engages with her thousands of followers on social media by sharing videos of her favourite cover songs. Her songs and life, touch on the realities many Indigenous women face, such as; domestic violence, addictions, depression, suicide, single parenthood, family dsyfunction, and relationships.
Chelsie has toured in BC, AB, SK, ON, and QC.
