“Street Soul is what I call my style.....it’s all I know”
Ever since a young girl growing up in South London, UK.
Chanelle knew she had a knack for melodies and enjoyed writing lyrics. Music has always been a huge part of Chanelle’s life. At just three years old, she began imitating her mother, a singer and a renown DJ and heavily influenced by her musical heroes,
Stevie Wonder and Aretha Franklin.
By age thirteen, Chanelle had handwritten her first album and soon after entered her first musical collaboration, “KeChan” along side childhood friend Kemi with whom she wrote and sang. Their join artistry resulted in two single recording deals with True Villain Records in the United States in 1999.
Although delighted with her success, Chanelle decided to once again go solo in 2000 and this is where her greater musical journey really began. Exposed to the NYC circuit, Chanelle adjusted to moving around, her next move being one on tour in Kenya in addition to headlining shows in her hometown.
A feisty combination of soul, hip hop, reggae with elements of jazz and rock, all written by herself working closely with her producers attributing to her material.
Now living in New York she has an exciting future ahead of her and is sure to follow in the footsteps of some of her greatest influences including Janet Jackson, Mary J. Blige and Soul II Soul.
Chanelle is a talented, determined, enthusiastic and fiercely ambitious raw British talent.
To compliment her amazing musical ability, she is a fully trained professional dancer and performed live shows regularly, vowing her audiences with her illuminous stage presence and sheer love of her art.
All in all Chanelle is a hugely gifted artist whose prospects are endless……
