Stress Dolls

Stress Dolls is the moniker of Chelsea O’Donnell, an alt/pop/rock artist from Buffalo, NY. O’Donnell began playing around Western New York in 2013, initially calling herself Wolf and eventually forming a band that released an EP called “It’s Electric,” produced by Brandon Schlia of Steak & Cake Records, in March of 2015. After a few line-up changes the name of the band was changed to Stress Dolls and the group went on to record a subsequent self-titled EP as well as open for such international touring acts as Shonen Knife, USS, and We Are Scientists. Due to differing pursuits the band disbanded in early 2017, but O’Donnell decided to keep playing under the name and has continued to book shows and release music. Since then she has opened for Dan Andriano (Alkaline Trio), Matt Pryor (The Get Up Kids), and The Pack A.D., made a brief move to Nashville, TN, and is now back in Buffalo working on new songs to be released in 2019. Her sound has drawn such comparisons as “Joni Mitchell meets Nirvana” and “Kathleen Hanna fronting Modest Mouse.”
