Every music genre is characterized by a unique style and specific instrumentation. For Canadian guitarist & jazz singer/songwriter Chantal Chamberland her sensuous, smoky voice is her trademark instrument. Chamberland strikes a perfect balance between the soul of the classic singer/songwriter and the dynamic verve of a jazz chanteuse. She can swing with the best of them, then capture your heart with a soft torch song and infuses the tracks with an incredible charm that is simply Chantal.
She has released six previous highly acclaimed albums: 2002's This is Our Time, 2004's Serendipity Street, 2005’s Dripping Indigo, 2008’s The Other Woman, 2012’s Chantal No. 5, and 2014's Soirée. For her highly anticipated 7th release, Temptation, due later this year, she takes the helm as producer on this outstanding release.
The result is a refreshing diversity of tempo and tone, and Chantal’s vocals move from sultry and soulful to bluesy and brassy with graceful ease. No vocal histrionics here, just a subtle yet always sincere take on material that resonates in her heart and soul.
