Our dreams came true when we met Chelsea and chose her to share in our lovely wedding. From the moment we met her we knew she was the one to perform. Chelsea was so attentive and aware of our expectations from the start, she sang and played everything perfectly. Our guests were in awe of her lovely voice and couldn't get enough-they have inquired where they can see her and get her music. Chelsea is top notch and you will be over the moon with her!!Sent on 11/16/2016

Chelsea added SO much to our 30th wedding anniversary party! She sparkles on stage. I commissioned her to write a song for my husband, as my gift to him. The song was perfect! When it was over, I looked around and all of my friends were in tears. It was a treasured moment.Sent on 11/18/2016
Working with Ten Cent Poetry was effortless. Very professional. She had excellent suggestions for songs and how to organize the event.
The icing on the cake was Chelsea herself- she's adorable, was wearing the cutest dress, and has a unique and sweet voice.
Chelsea is truly a gem, and I feel fortunate to have performed extensively with her. With her soulful voice, strong guitar/banjo playing, song-writing (she will write a piece just for you for your event!), and amazing personality, she is sure to add to your special event.
