Chelsea Nikkel cut her teeth in circus punk trio Teenwolf in the mid 2000s and toured internationally with label mates The Brunettes. While working as a composer for Franklin Road Studios by day, Chelsea has spent the past three years learning how to record in her bedroom and putting together a whimsical collection of synth pop tunes, which sometimes hint at more sly or cynical subject matter. With the assistance of Auckland-based indie pop label Lil Chief Records, Chelsea recently released her debut album 'Lil Golden Book' under the royal moniker Princess Chelsea.
