Chela | Music Artists on Indie Accent

Chela

b. - | ORIGIN: MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA

Chela (born Chelsea Wheatley) is an Australian musician, singer, songwriter, producer and director. Originally from Fremantle, Western Australia, she relocated to Melbourne with her family at age 15 and currently resides both there, and in California. Chela began producing music at age 12 on Logic software, and played bass guitar in punk bands throughout her teenage years. She directs her own music videos, and writes and produces most of her own songs, as well as writes for other artists. In 2014 she teamed up with Styalz Fuego to write "Closure" for Owl Eyes, the first single off her debut album "Nightswim", which reached #28 in the Australian Albums Chart.
In 2015 Chela was formally recognised by Spotify via their Spotlight Artists. Pulse Radio listed her as one of ten electronic crossover acts "to watch out for" in 2015, and Bit Candy described her as recording "seriously catchy, stand-out music that sets her apart from the sea of electro-pop acts that have been popping up this year".
Chela first gained international attention releasing singles "Romanticise" (featured in the trailer to Sleeping With Other People) and "Zero" on French taste-maker label Kitsuné. She has also collaborated with several music groups, including Goldroom on his summer-anthem "Fifteen", Clubfeet on their highly-rotated single "Heartbreak", and queer pop-punk cult hero Seth Bogart on his debut self-titled solo album alongside Kathleen Hanna and Tavi Gevinson.
