The Central Coast musical prodigy Chelsea Berman returns with her latest single 'Tastes like a Hangover'. This new release follows on from her successful 2021 EP Can You Just Not which topped the iTunes Country charts and guarantees to be the party starting tune of the year.
At the tender age of 23, Berman has already had a long career in country music. Starting her journey at age 8, she has worked hard to build her style and sound into something unique. She has achieved great success already with her pop country stylings and her momentum is continuing to build.
'Tastes Like a Hangover' is a track that sounds like a party, masking and ignoring the inevitable comedown the next day. Berman says: "This song is inspired by my own hangovers, at 23 you wouldn't think they would be that bad - but as the song says, I definitely spend the next day on the bathroom floor after a few too many Fireball shots."
The track was co-written with Troy Kemp, and produced by Rod McCormack (Gina Jefferies, Adam Harvey, Beccy Cole) at The Music Cellar. "I came to Troy Kemp with the idea for the song and he loved it, so we wrote the song and he added a different angle of 'making the night worthwhile' so the next day you can remember all of the fun you had the night before!" Berman says "The track was produced by Rod McCormack who did an amazing job and gave the song a pop/country feel that is sure to help you dance the night away!"
Chelsea Berman has already gathered many achievements in her career, including being a finalist in the Toyota Star Maker competition at the Tamworth Country Music Festival. She has co-written with Nashville hitmakers Phil Barton and Jason Duke, signed a publishing deal with Kobalt Music, and has written with local artists such as Matt Scullion, Kirsty Lee Akers, and Melanie Dyer.
Berman has also toured extensively and shared the stage with artists including Travis Collins, Brad Cox, Amber Lawrence and Hurricane Fall. Her Fresh Country Tour was created with Jake Davey and has seen multiple sold out shows across the east coast of Australia - Berman plans to take the show to Queensland and to the Tamworth Country Music Festival. She has also played at many festivals throughout Australia including Gympie Muster, Groundwater Country Festival and Country Rocks the Capital.
With the release of Berman's Can You Just Not EP hitting #1 on the iTunes Country Album chart, #5 iTunes All Genres, a coveted Album of the Week feature on ABC Country, and her previous single 'Waste My Time' peaking at #22 on The Music Network CountryTown Hot 50 airplay charts, Berman's career is progressing at an unstoppable pace.
'Tastes Like a Hangover' is the party soundtrack song for right now, with Berman herself summing it up perfectly as "the drinking song you never knew you needed."
