No matter what you call it. "It is writing and singing from the soul and heart" she says with a smile. She writes produces and programs all of her keyboard and drum tracks and collaborates with other musicians. The Artist C is filled with a strong drive and creative energy that is somehow balanced between being a wife and mother. "There are not enough hours in the day to do all that I have planned." She says on a serious note. "When I have a vision of a project I want to get it done quickly!" adding, "If I say I am going to do something, I do it." This singer and songwriter's dream of enhancing the music culture of Canada and bringing the R&B sound to her community and surrounding areas is rapidly coming true. At a young age, she knew that her destiny was to be a recording artist. Chantal recorded her first full solo album in 1993 in Toronto and was involved with a variety of recording projects with different artists; Bentwind, Donna Makeda, Trevor, Lana, Gitano and others. In 1998, C moved to Montreal where she shared her powerful voice at a variety of nightclubs, weddings and corporate events. She also joined the International circuit with a Morocco Tour, which kept her on the road for almost 4 months sharing her talent. In September 2004 C moved once again, this time to the Pontiac, a beautiful region located one hour north of Ottawa. Since her move C performed in many venues and worked in the studio recording some brand new songs for her upcoming album, which will be released on November 24th 2006 and on sale at cdbaby.com. Last year in October of 2005 she would catch the eye of the popular talk show host in the United States, Ellen Degeneres. After Degeneres heard the theme song that Chantal wrote for the show. Degeneres stated, "It is cool and groovy," playing it on her show eight times in a two weeks period. Active always in her community, she performed some of her songs at a benefit show in November of 2005. The profits of the show went to the Shawville Hospital Palliative Care unit and for the creation of the Pontiac Stage Artists Coop. Chantal is also one of the people who will create the coop, which will offer several services to it's members. Since that show, C has been involved in many fundraisers in the community. C one day said; "The more God blesses you with abilities, talents and resources, the more you must give in return to others. It is your responsibility to give back." July 1, 2006 C performed at Canada Day. Chantal has also participated in many festivals, including the Festival de la chanson de Granby, when she was only 16 years of age. She was also invited to perform on a few television shows, such as Star dun Soir aired on CBC and X-Tendamix on Much Music. Knowing the importance of communicating with other artist's and the desire to promote Canada's musicians and her own music, Chantal discovered the American internet sensation, MY SPACE. This worldwide cyber space community reaches the far corners of the globe and allows people to network on a variety of subjects. Seeing the unlimited possibilities The Artist C created a web page entitled, CIRCLE OF FRIENDS PROMOTIONS. The Circle rapidly became a popular site for other INDIE artist's to interact and also connect with people who appreciate their crafts. Circle of Friends features independent artists who also dream of bringing their creative gifts to the world, from recording artists to novelist and a variety of other creative talents in visual arts. Circle of Friends was an immediate hit throughout the world and just answering the mail has become an overwhelming task.
