Michelle Chamuel Touring, To Release Album in 2015
Tue, 23 Sep 2014 16:08:40
Michelle Chamuel, the bespectacled songstress who won America's heart on Season 4 of The Voice, under the stewardship of coach Usher, is "fired" up.
The singer is proud to announce the upcoming release of her debut LP, Face the Fire, set to hit via The End Records/ADA in February 2015. The first single is the title track and it will impact October 7.
So October and February are key months for M. Chamuel, as are November and December, since she will be touring and promoting during the pre-release time period, as well. She is a busy girl for the next several months.
Face the Fire came together at a breakneck pace. For three weeks this past winter, Chamuel and her collaborators, Tyler Duncan and Theo Katzman, who were college pals and My Dear Disco band members, holed up in Chamuel's home, building the album from musical nuggets each had brought to the sessions.
The title track on the album and first single is no exception, showcasing Chamuel's vision and her collaborators' ingenuity. "Face the Fire" serves as a pulsing mission statement, a vamping call to action that Chamuel relates to her own experience in harnessing musical passion. This track, which like the rest of the album was recorded and produced in Chamuel and Duncan's home studios, is a tapestry of interlocking percussion, surf-punk bass tones, and a rousing call and answer between Chamuel and her choir. When describing the new track, Chamuel says, "'Face the Fire' is about harnessing passion in life, following the fiery drive that pulls at us to accomplish, while also recognizing the danger of being completely consumed by it."
Making music since the wee age of four, Michelle's passion has taken her through different projects and genres, from the eclectic rock band she fronted for five years, Ella Riot, to her electronic production alter-ego, The Reverb Junkie, and of course, the passionate pop music she makes as Michelle Chamuel.
As we mentioned, the adorkable Chamuel is touring this fall, too!
