Chanel Perry

As rich as the legendary name Coco CHANEL implies, this talented female vocalist, CHANEL, has slowly and delicately designed a fortune in her voice. After many years of investment in her talent, this songwriter, performer and vocal arranger has quite an impressive history for one not to be signed to a major label.

CHANEL attended Dillard School of the Performing Arts, and she went on to receive a B.A. Degree in Mass Communications from Bethune-Cookman College where she performed in the Concert Choir, Vesper Chorus and the Gospel Choir.

The result is the luxurious, soothing tone which is instantly recognizable and has made Chanel a firm favourite with the overseas taste-making urban soul and dance DJ’s and media.

Chanel –  My Life Hed Kandi release

Since independent label MaPP Records CEO Dee Majek, released exclusive white labels of “My Life” on to the streets of the UK in 2003, Philadelphia native, Chanel Perry’s career has been in full flight. In 2005, “My Life”, was licensed to Jazz FM London and released on its dance label, Hed Kandi.  From there, it exploded out of the UK urban soul underground like a bush fire

It went onto national radio, receiving solid club rotation, heavy radio and video airplay to become a mainstay club classic spawning Top 40 national chart hits in the UK, France, and Scandinavia and being licensed worldwide on over 60 compilations.

Chanel – My Life

This followed in 2008 with her follow –up single ‘Dance’ which was number1 in both Music Week pop and dance charts as well as going on to be licensed on a worldwide basis as a single and on numerous compilations.

Not forgetting her urban roots the stand out track ‘Lovely Day’ on the Lolawaxx, Independent Divas compilation in that year 2009 saw the third single release by Hed kandi of he excellent cover of the Brownstone classic ‘If you Love me.’

With overseas acclaim, and an ever-growing street, radio and Internet fan base the name ‘Chanel’ has become a buzzword throughout the music industry. Now after a 2-year hiatus Chanel returns back to her RNB/Soul roots to raise temperatures in the clubs and across radio airwaves and storm the charts.
