Chanelle Albert is a young and independent singer, songwriter and composer. Her style takes root from a variety of genres including Folk, Rock, Blues and Alternative and her craft is greatly influenced by artists such as The Beatles, Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen, Janis Joplin, Bruce Springsteen, U2 and Johnny Cash. Born and raised in the small Canadian town of Verner in Northern Ontario, Chanelle started song writing in 2013 at the age of 16, writing in both English and French when creating her music and poetry. She has since released her debut album How Beautiful We Are in 2015 at the age of 18 which has earned her a nomination by the 2016 Toronto Independent Music Awards in the category of Best Folk or Roots and a nomination by the 2016 Canadian Folk Music Awards / Prix de musique folk canadienne in the category of Young Performer of the Year.
Our favorite track from How Beautiful We Are is titled "Where The Water Meets The Sky". Chanelle's voice can be described as soothing, melodic and just overall relaxing. Her music is the definition of traditional singer- songwriter which has proven time and again to be one of our top genres. Her lyrics are classic and clever, and the instrumentation is simple with a lot of finger picking that collectively makes for easy- listening. This is an album you can put on literally anywhere for any occasion, and trust us- we will.
