Chantae Cann is the charismatic influence with a voice that transcends through time. With the release of her debut album "Journey to Golden" in March 2016 at #1 on the iTunes Jazz Charts and #7 on the Jazz Billboard Charts, Chantae’s solo career has started off on a promising note.
Influences like Bobby McFerrin, Haitus Kyote, Chaka Khan and countless others help shape the sounds that you hear throughout her music. Chantae’s music blends the exploratory sounds of Jazz with the feel good vibes of Soul, which makes for a mixture that is quite enticing. It is her heart’s desire to simply inspire, uplift and encourage the lives of others through music.
Songs like Free Your Dreams have become a modern day mantra reminding the world to never give up on their dreams, even when times are seemingly questionable. Beauty Speaks reflects the essence of beauty through nature and learning to enjoy the simplicity around us.
Chantae is not a novice to the industry. She has been blessed to travel the world as a background vocalist (10+ years) with P.J. Morton, Gramps Morgan, and most notably India Arie. She’s had the tremendous honor of collaborating with artists/bands such as, Snarky Puppy, Jonathan McReynolds and The Foreign Exchange.
Chantae has recently teamed up with a DJ crew (WERC Crew) out of Atlanta to release a RE-WERC (remix) of her album “Journey To Golden”. "Journey to Golden RE-WERC” released August 11, 2017.
Her upcoming studio album further solidifies Chantae’s signature sound while referencing the comforting sounds from her first album, “Journey To Golden”. Lyrically, this is a love letter from Chantae to her listeners with an in depth look at her evolution as an artist, and most importantly who she has come to be as a person.
This album is set to release October 13, 2017.
