Album Notes
Chelsea McBee is definitely new to the music scene but is quickly gaining popularity. Born and raised in Shepherdstown, WV, McBee quotes the old-time WV banjo tunes that she learned as major influences in her style of playing and her songwriting. She began playing claw-hammer banjo in the summer of 2005 and has been working on traditional tunes as well as writing original songs since then. Her unique, inviting voice pairs well with the distinctive sound of her 5-string. Artists such as Gillian Welch, Anais Mitchell, Feist, Bonnie Rait and the Indigo Girls have all inspired this young songstress. "I have always been really into female musicians. Not exclusively, but I can relate to the common thread of womanness and really admire it". McBee will get up and sing a WV tune, a catchy melody, a bare-boned a capella, and then a sultry tango piece all with the banjo. She worked with The Fox Hunt for her debut album 'Don't Close Your Eyes'. Their WV string band energy behind McBee's lyrics make for an entertaining mix. Her tunes offer a variety of sound and heart stirring emotion, which will only serve to broaden her fan base.
