Chelsea Basham was named 2017 CMC Female Artist of the year at the CMC Awards. In 2013 Chelsea Basham’s debut album I Make My Own Sunshine established the gifted singer-songwriter from the West Australian wheat belt as one of the hottest new Australian artists. It produced three hit singles, a Golden Guitar Award and an APRA award nomination.
Now Chelsea releases her outstanding sophomore follow up Youngest, a collection of beachy - soul - folk tunes…the kind of album you’d crank in the car on a sandy road to the beach or sitting around a bonfire by the water with your friends.
With powerful vocals and infectious melodies, Ben Ransom has all the hallmarks of a classic artist and performer.
Ben Ransom reflects all that is great about Australian music, with tracks translating perfectly from recording to live performance and continuously delivering a smoking hot and energetic live show.
Born and raised in Sydney, Ben started playing the guitar and writing songs since the age of 15. From early days, his constant exposure to a broad range of musical influences, like Irish Folk, traditional country and classic standards, through to Australian 'Pub Rock' and modern pop, has led Ben to develop an appreciation and knowledge of many styles of Music. This knowledge is incorporated into his multi-faceted approach to his songwriting which has an uncanny ability to draw in the listener on several different levels.
