Chelsea Blues releases new track ‘Wildspirit’

Smooth soul and jazz music hasn’t seen all that much pop limelight over recent years, but Bahamian born and London residing singer/songwriter Chelsea Blues aims to inject more life into the UK music scene with her commandingly soulful but remarkably calming voice.

Chelsea’s vocals soar over the top of a relaxing instrumental, expertly channeling the now classic and influential styles of Amy Winehouse, Erykah Badu and Ella Fitzgerald. The track fills that slight void felt by fans of classic soul and modernises the formula, whilst still honouring those who pioneered in the genre.

Her effortless, raspy vocals weave through funk-tinged basslines, swinging keys, lowkey drumwork and retro guitar licks, truly invoking that calm, lazy Sunday morning feeling that everyone strives for. The track also sounds crisp and weighty within it’s mixing, helping to give the classic, comforting vibe a more modern flavour.

The track really leans into the vibey nature of smooth jazz, and brings about a unique sense of mellow warmth, but also the immediacy of a hearty, powerful and expansive vocal. Chelsea Blues’ energy and drive comes through in bounds within ‘Wildspirit’, and it is brimming with stylish personality – her blend of old school homage with new school sensibility is definitely refreshing to hear.
