This is the website of Michelle Chamuel (that’s me!). I compose, sound engineer, sing, play, and produce music. I have done so for over 20 years now and that feels like a long time, but also a really short time. I also make visual art and crunch lettuce with my teeth. I would, however, have to say my favorite food item in the world is really really really good toast or a tasty island fruit.
During my school years, I practiced composition and performance for most of my free time, then I caught the performing bug and toured the continental US in a electro-jam-pop band called My Dear Disco (also known as Ella Riot). I finished out my mega-performing phase by participating in NBC’s fourth season of The Voice.
My roots, however, are in making music behind the scenes. I went to school for music technology in Michigan, and am most nurtured by making sound-art in the studio. I make music that hopefully serves as good company and has a strong emotional resonance. So far, I’ve released over twelve EPs/albums – many of them collaborations with other musicians – and I am currently working on three more solo ones.
Though I’m not performing much these days, there is a part of me that will always eventually pop up and say, “GET OUT THERE AND MAKE SURE YOU SHARE YOUR MUSIC-SOUL IN PUBLIC!” Someday in the future I’ll bust out of the studio, but in the meantime, let the records roll on!!!!
