Chellcy Reitsma is new to the music scene but not to the stage; a true artist in every capacity. Originally from California she grew up in a musical family exposed to American folk, rock and full gospel.
She graduated from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in visual arts with three degrees. After graduation she started her own ethnic dance company and toured around the world performing with many bands and drummers enjoying international recognition within the ethnic dance scene. She is based now on the island of Malta. She started her musical journey in 2015 after some major dance injuries forced her to retire from dancing. She had always wanted to try her hand at singing-songwriting but never had the time, so she quickly seized theopportunity to start a new chapter and follow her music dreams. Songwriting is coming naturally to the artist, Chellcy is now a rising star in the music scene with her own unique fusion style and a retro edge that blends a touch of jazz, with blues and alternative rock. Her music has been described by some as “poetry to music”. She has already enjoyed success with her first three releases, which received some media coverage and can be heard on radio stations regularly in six countries. http://chellcyreitsma.com
