Chelsea Williams + One Harmonica


I think what made me pay attention when I was watching Chelsea Williams' 'Lonely Girl' on Audiotree was the two mics on one stand (so close together). My thought was: 'Hmmmm...that could be a good stereo effect.'.


From further watching the video, it didn't seem like it was! At one point Chelsea seemed to switch off the mic to her left. Oh well....


That curiosity was enough to stay until the chorus and my reaction was: 'Goodness me! This is one good song'. The harmonica just makes it shine all the more. In the process structuring this entry (which I think about both the heading on the top of the page, the email subject line, and the quick blurb you get before you click open my message), I thought: 'You know....just Chelsea and a harmonica could definitely work'.


One of the regular questions I get from people curious about the music discovery project is what my listening taste is like. I still struggle with that question and have a canned answer I give each time (though it does undergo tweaks...every time I get an epiphany), and glancing through the blurb on her Audiotree video...

"Chelsea Williams is an experimental indie folk artist whose three piece band uses an array of effected instruments to form their tranquil pieces. Williams herself uses looping equipment to create copies of her gentle, pop-informed voice while the band creates a soundtrack-like textural backdrop for her warm acoustic guitar work."

...and I think I would agree that a lot of those words and phrases do reflect the kind of music tracks I MIGHT get drawn to

  • experimental
  • tranquil pieces
  • soundtrack-like textural backdrop
  • warm acoustic guitar work

 
As this project is much of having a starting point and finding out where it would take me. I did a quick search for 'warm acoustic guitar work' and these stood out:

within the entry and just focus on finding photos
