S2E08 - Chelsey Bennett (Neo Soul/Jazz Singer-Songwriter)


Toronto neo-soul/jazz singer-songwriter Chelsey Bennett is one of the hardest working live performers in the city.  

On any given night, you'll find her playing an intimate set at a cozy bar or music venue.

We sat down with Chelsey to discuss how she eventually rejected her classical/opera teachings to pursue jazz and soul music, regularly performing at the Practice jam sessions, and which music legends she would summon to headline her dream concert.
