Princess Chelsea on Jekyll and Hyde
As I’ve mentioned many times before, Princess Chelsea’s Lil’ Golden Book is THE Jekyll album to get from the past year. The fairy-tale like atmosphere will engulf you and pull you in with its numerous hooks and witty lyrics.
Chelsea Nikkel, the mastermind behind this project, shared with us stories about Jonathan Bree, the success of the youtube video, touring, vinyl LPs and how much she misses her cat.
We’d have gladly played the entire album, but instead urge you to buy a copy. It’s truly a perfect album in its own right. If you want to get your hands on a physical copy of “Positive Guy”, there are only a few left for sale on Lil’ Chief Records’ website.
Ladies and gentlemen – Princess Chelsea!
