Double Bill: Chelsea Berry – Ryan Tennis

May 31, 2012 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

| $10

Chelsea Berry is a singer/songwriter with incredible edge, power, and finesse. Her presence has been described by listeners as “compelling… she draws the entire house into her world like moths to a flame.” Her vocals are controlled, smooth, and intensely powerful. Her original lyrics are reminiscent of the folk music of the sixties.

Chelsea was born and raised in Alaska, and made her way through Montana, Nashville, and Chicago before settling in the Boston area 3 years ago. Her music is played regularly on Sirius XM’s The Loft radio, and she has been played on Boston’s 92.5 The River, WXGR and WSCA in Portsmouth, NH, and many other stations in the Northeast.


The charming authenticity of Ryan Tennis‘ sound has drawn comparisons to Paul Simon, Ben Harper and Martin Sexton; surprising likenesses for a former All-American college football player turned singer-songwriter. While his disarming lyrics and sing-able melodies display a rare sensitivity, the intensity of his live performances hint at his grid-iron past. Tennis credits Philadelphia’s music scene with inspiring his sense of groove. He’s organized a monthly series of “Clubhouse Concerts” in his home featuring standout musicians and reaching beyond the traditional folk scene. “What I learned from a couple years of listening to and playing with other Philly artists,” Tennis says, “is that if it feels good — and if it’s true — then it’s good music.”
