Coming up from a previous generation of musicians, this Austin-born-and-raised native (the rarest of unicorns) started her musical career young. Along with a passion and curiosity that would not die, the prodigy started out on piano at the young age of 9 years old and began guitar the next year. Chelsea Barbo recorded her first album at age 17 and began playing shows around the "Live Music Capital of the World".
"I'm so grateful to have been raised in a household that taught good music, good habits and the attitude of persistence," Chelsea says. Chelsea joined the Nowherebound crew early on and helped with a number of recording projects. She was an integral member in Austin local crooners The Cover Letter and later joined full-time as a jumped-in member of Nowherebound. Besides being an extremely talented multi-instrumentalist, Chelsea is a thoughtful and brilliant songwriter.
Look for new Chelsea Barbo music to come. Currently, she in the process of writing and recording a solo album, and of course, you'll find it here.
