Golden Guitar winner Chelsea Basham was the 2017 CMC Female Artist of the Year on which channel she’s reached the #1 position with 5 singles across her two albums I Make My Own Sunshine and Youngest. Currently Chelsea is working on an exciting new project with drummer/ guitarist/ husband Kingsley Oldmeadow which they are writing new material for their band Kings Drifter.
In 2012 Chelsea Basham’s debut album I Make My Own Sunshine established the gifted singer-songwriter from the West Australian wheat belt as one of the hottest new Australian artists. It produced three hit singles, a Golden Guitar Award for New Talent of the Year, an APRA Music Award nomination and an invitation to perform a duet with Keith Urban at the Perth Arena.
January 2016 Chelsea released her outstanding sophomore follow up, Youngest, a collection of beachy – soul – folk tunes…the kind of album you’d crank in the car on a sandy road to the beach or sitting around a bonfire by the water with your friends. The album spawned three consecutive #1’s on CMC, shot to the number 1 position on the iTunes album chart and had huge chart success on Australian Country Radio.
By November 2016 Chelsea had embarked on the Youngest We’ll Ever Be House Concert Tour, which due to the success of the tour lapped around Australia three times, seeing Basham perform in over 50 homes across Australia in 6 months. House Concerts have become a staple of Chelsea’s career, enabling her to connect with fans through her music, up-lifting personality and insightful and often hillarious stories. The House Concert Tour is on-going and available by application here…
Chelsea has been the ambassador for Darwin based airline Airnorth since 2013 and her song “Just Go” features on the airlines national commercials and on-board the aircraft.
Basham was nominated for two CMC Music Awards, Australian Music Video of the Year and Female Artist of the Year, based on airplay on CMC. The Awards are fan voted and in March 2017 she went on to win the Female Artist of the Year Award. Chelsea Basham is now considered one of Australia’s core artists.
“It’s Chelsea Basham’s candid spirituality, sweet humility and shrewd musicianship that make Youngest the perfect summer album.”
