Close your eyes at a Chersea show and you would think there are a half dozen people on stage. But when you open them, you will find there is only one person, Chersea Raing. Surrounded by and playing a myriad of instruments with amazing precision, creating beautifully layered and textured harmonies, then without a moments respite, Chersea uses her loop-stations to create dark, ethereal walls of sound that engulf you, and make you want to dance. All of this is further enhanced and driven by her powerful voice,  and poetic lyrics she conjures transporting you into dream-like soundscapes and hypnotic other-worldly rhythms for an indie-pop sound like no other.

Since winning the 2013 Boss Loop Station Canadian Championship, Chersea has stolen hearts, captured minds, and bent ears across the country. She has performed at CMW, Rifflandia, Whistler Film Fest, and has big plans for 2015 including upcoming Seasons Festival (Vancouver), another stop at CMW, and an album release for summer 2015. Her debut EP Grey Matter came out in mid-2014 to strong reviews, and she earned a spot in the Regional Finals for Vancouver in CBC’s 2014 Searchlight Competition, as well as winning first place in LG104.3’s vanCOVER competition for the month of December. With no sign of slowing down, Chersea is already looking forward to 2015 and the planned release of Vipera this summer. Like its namesake, the album has a bite that will make a lasting impression, with the a dreamy sound and layered vocals that will haunt your grey matter for days.

Come out for a night of pure musical bliss, Fri May 8th at the Magpie Taproom
