Whether it’s showing you how to properly get down to one of her mixes or propelling you into a state of pure nu-pop bliss, Chela has truly cemented herself as an emerging talent to watch within the alt-electro scene. Originally hailing from Melbourne, Australia as Chelsea May Wheatley, it hasn’t taken long for Chela to prove her stellar production capabilities from her debut 2012 single, “Plastic Gun” to her more recent standout singles ‘Romanticise’ and ‘Zero’, released through acclaimed cult label, Kitsune. Quickly gaining momentum for her lush vocal abilities, Chela rose to the attention of blogs and music media across the globe, as the voice to the Goldroom hit ‘Fifteen’, Viceroy’s ‘Dream Of Bombay’, and hometown friends Clubfeet’s single ‘Heartbreak’.
2014 is proving to be a monumental year for Chela, which saw her appear across 8 shows at SXSW in Austin, TX, including showcases for Nylon Magazine and label home Kitsune, as well as hit the stage at the Heineken Dome at Coachella over two big weekends. Relocating to Los Angeles amongst it all, June saw her tour North America as the vocalist for Goldroom, playing sold-out venues such as the iconic El Rey in LA and The Brooklyn Bowl in NY. Finally settling down after a massive 6 months of live shows, Chela is back in the studio writing and producing for a debut record which will see her upcoming single ‘Handful Of Gold’ released to fans everywhere soon. This is only the start of the best to come for this music and fashion tastemaker, Chela!
