About Chelle Martin
Chelle Martin was born in Reno, Nevada and later grew up in Denver, Colorado and then in Sandy, Utah. When Chelle was a baby her mom would put her on the floor with some pots, pans, and two wooden spoons. Chelle would play those things like a made-to-be little drummer. Since then she has loved anything to do with music.
When Chelle was 4 years old, her Mom got a piano and started learning how to play it. Chelle would hear something on the radio, then she would go over to the piano, and start playing the song she just heard. Chelle was so inspired by the sounds that she started to create her own music. That’s when she knew she wanted to be a musician. Chelle's ability to play by ear amazed her mom so much that she put her into piano lessons.
Chelle wanted to start playing the saxophone when she was 9 years old, but her arms were too short to hold it, so she started playing the clarinet instead. By the time she was 12 years old, her little arms had grown out enough that she could start learning the saxophone and she wrote her first song. After that, she learned a new instrument every year, starting with the guitar, drums, bass guitar, and finally trombone and trumpet during Pep Band class in high school.
Chelle was very active in Marching Band, Concert Band, Jazz Band, and Pep Band. She also learned Music Theory and was active in Choir and Honors Choir all throughout school, and took some private lessons for guitar, bass guitar, and drums.
Growing up she listened to a variety of music, but mostly pop and whatever was popular on the radio at the time. One day she heard a song by Robert Miles called “Children” and fell in love with electronic music.
Some of Chelle's other interests include painting, fishing, biking, swimming, anything to do with nature, skating for fun with the local roller derby team, and spending time with family and friends.
Chelle is currently living in Spokane, Washington, where she continues to create and produce her music today.
