Chantal Hackett is a multi-talented singer/songwriter of incredible versatility from Ottawa, Ontario (Canada). Her music is a blend of a/c pop & soul, a cross between popular artists Kelly Clarkson & Emeli Sandé.
The soul of this young artist can be heard in each song that she sings, and her complete mastery of singing is remarkable. Her charm, poise and astonishing talent, just gets stronger with each and every performance.
Chantal has enjoyed training in voice and piano and has spent her life immersed in the exciting world of pop and soul.
Chantal knew singing would be her career when she auditioned for a reputable talent show at twelve years old and made it in despite not having ever trained or auditioned for a singing competition before. After this experience, she learned that she loved all areas of the music industry, from being in front and behind the stage, to the people she met and of course, being immersed in music 24/7.
In 2006 she released her first CD, a six-song Christmas collection featuring the incredibly beautiful original, My City at Christmas. She went to release her second album “Decision” in 2009 and has recently released her new EP entitled: “Ready for the Fall”. Her newest single is called “Where Were You.”
Chantal is also a lifestyle/culture blogger and devoted to the business and arts community. She is also a music teacher & speaker and owns her very own music studio located in Ottawa, ON called Sing House Studios.
In her late twenties, Chantal was at the top of her peak, performing on stage with Juno nominated artists and working with record labels. Her journey then took a turn for (what seemed at the time) the worst when she kept meeting managers/agents who wanted her to be everything she was not to sell more records. This included changing her physical image drastically, her messaging in her music and her age/vocal tone in a way, that to her, was far from constructive but rather demeaning. In 2014, she took a big break from her solo music career and focused on expanding her vocal and performance studio so that the focus would be on the students being the artists they are meant to be. Since then, she has been successfully running her own studio with over 200 aspiring artists who all have the same goal: to develop in a way that is authentic to them. Chantal aims in developing them to be confident, strong musicians from the inside out.
Now in her early thirties, Chantal is not only a self-employed successful artist, entrepreneur and a community advocate for the arts and youth – but she is the artist that she is meant to be and it feels good – and mostly, it feels RIGHT. She continues to sing and be part of numerous projects while helping the many students from her studio follow her journey. She has signed on with a new local label, Willow Sound Records, and is currently writing her fourth EP.
