Chella and the Charm
Chella and the Charm
Originally from La Crosse, Wisconsin, folk singer-songwriter, Chella Negro, relocated to Colorado 2000. Though spending the majority of the past decade living in Denver has certainly informed her songs with a spirit that can only be lifted from the ubiquitous concrete and glass of the city, the soul of a life spent growing up in a midwestern town remains the heartbeat of the music. The seemingly mutually exclusive elements of country heart and urban savvy fuse seamlessly into a collection of songs that is at once unique and comfortingly familiar. Reflected in her singing simultaneously are the pain of heartbreak, the joy and wonder of life, and the wisdom gained from experiencing both. Chella faithfully carries the torch of singer-songwriter folk music past and current. The addition of Dave Pinto on Pedal Steel, Melanie Karnopp on Drums, and Jason Leija on Bass fill out the instrumentation and bring a decidedly Americana sound to the songs.
The Charm’s latest effort, Denver Delay, has been described as textured, lush, and captivating with a sound that speaks to the traditional country and western of yesteryear while expanding on bare bones, tastefully intertwining smart, modern lyricism and catchy indie singer/songwriter sensibility.

Erika Ryann
Erika Ryann pulls her sound from dimly lit honky tonks, small western towns, and years lived in the tangled woods of southwestern Colorado. She writes music to ease what consumes her. From a wild hunger for outlandish, country-freedom to flitting moments and heart-wrenching memories, her music is her way of working through and coming to some understanding with the human condition.
