Lady Chann (London / UK) has been part of North West Londonâ€™s vibrant Suncycle crew since itâ€™s conception, and now she’s branching out alone, and bringing her unique talent to a wider audience.
Well schooled in reggae music from an early age by her soundman father, the rhythms of Studio One, Trojan and Treasure Isle soundtracked her childhood. Chanelleâ€™s mother recognised her keen musical interest from an early age and encouraged her to take up piano, flute, trombone, french horn and even the drums, alongside the singing lessons that set her on the path.
Fast forward to 2009 and Chann has been deep in the studio with some of the UK’s hottest producers, working on tracks for her debut album. She worked with South Rakkas, Todla T, Warrior One and Sticky.
Live, Lady Chann is a force to be reckoned with. Having served her apprenticeship as part London’s premier dancehall crew she is a true microphone controller, her husky voice and trademark flow setting her apart from the pack, and tearing up the hottest clubs across the UK and beyond.
