THE CHELSEA DAGGERS
It’s not often that three artists, all from unique walks of life and all with talent bursting at the seams, can come
together and form a power trio so quickly. The Chelsea Daggers have a one of a kind, organic sound that can best be
described as powerful.
At any given show, you will see lead vocalist Sirenn belting out original hits and crooning lyrics that drip with
venom, as she entertains a never ending sea of doting fans night after night. Complimenting her sumptuous sounds
are Shock Remington on guitar and Zoltan Zoltan on drums, equally powerful in their talent, and so well
harmonized that each song feels like it’s coming from one dynamic and perfectly blended musical force.
Hailing from Charlotte, Tampa and New Orleans respectively, the Chelsea Daggers started making sweet music
shortly after getting together a year and a half ago in Charlotte. Encouraged by the creative genius of bands like Led
Zeppelin, Earl Greyhound, and Jon Spencer’s Blues Explosion, the band draws inspiration from their personal
inﬂuences when working and developing their own unique style.
Their formula for success stemmed from the desire to put together a group using three fundamental elements -
guitar, organ, and drums ala' The Doors, and keeping their music true to those sounds. The Chelsea Daggers wanted
to see how big of a sound they could actually create without the use of other instruments. Needless to say they have
Gaining such high levels of achievement can only come from an absolute dedication to perfecting their craft, which
often entails setting certain limitations on the band that would allow for more efﬁcient results. When recording, not
only are they limited to three instruments, each member gets only one take to get his or her part recorded . As
drummer Zoltan Zoltan says, they do this because “It retains the initial energy of the song…and, you only get one
take when you play it live.”
Their songs are an uncompromising combination of raw, bluesy stripped-down guitar riffs, masterful percussion that
often comes together as one powerful and unyielding low end thud, and lush vocals that can range from uproarious
bellows down to sultry whispers, and boast Sirenn’s incredible range.
With this much creative synergy ﬂowing amongst them, the Chelsea Daggers stay motivated in further developing
their intrinsic skills and maintaining their well deserved status as THE power trio of music today.
