Janessa brings energy and enthusiasm to the stage for every performance. With a wide vocal range and distinct sound, she can easily shift her style and attitude to perform all your favorite songs. She found her voice at a young age, performing in talent shows, musical theater, and every karaoke bar imaginable...then invaded the live music scene in 2012. Since then, she has added her quirky personality and unmistakable flair to the stages of PNW’s top live music venues and casinos. As a new addition to The Beat Project, she can’t wait to rock out with this group of amazing musicians!

Chelsea began her journey singing in choirs and school musicals as a child, and jumped into the PNW live music scene via karaoke and collaboration with fellow local musicians around 2008. She's been fronting vocals with her other band, The Ricky Venture Revue for the past 10 years and is excited to bring her energy and love of music into The Beat Project! She enjoys creating a fun environment where people can let loose and dance, her favorite color is glitter, and she teaches yoga whenever she's not rocking out with her bandmates!

 

Darcy – Lead Vocals

Darcy began his musical career as a child, singing and playing ukulele in summer camps, and then breaking ukuleles and getting kicked out of camps. He soon diverted this energy into a series of high school bands in Canada, singing and playing guitar. After graduating, he toured Canada and the US with bands Terra Cain and Cassius King, and then as a solo artist, producing several recordings along the way before eventually landing in Seattle. A consummate live performer, Darcy’s spent most of his life on a stage. A child of rock, pop, jazz, and theatre, he’s most comfortable entertaining an audience with music that can be seen, heard, touched and tasted.
