Interview: Kendra Chantelle Discusses Upcoming Album Releasing On November 20

We’re excited ot share this interview with Kendra Chantelle, who just released her newest single “I Still Believe” and is about to release a whole new album!

We are stoked to have you today. Tell us about your fall season so far! What are you up to? 

Thank you, I am so excited to be here! My fall has been pretty magical- I just released my second single “I Still Believe” off my upcoming record Carousel and am gearing up for the album release 11-20 so that’s kept me busy enough. I also just love fall weather in TN and am enjoying being home to take walks with my french bulldog, Buddha.

What music typically plays in your home? 

We play a huge variety of music in our house. “Cooking music” is generally Frank Sinatra, Etta James, Sam Cooke, etc- the great classics.  I am usually singing all the time – maybe writing new songs, maybe just singing my favorite Mariah Carey & Michael Jackson songs for the millionth time, ya never know! I love to throw on some great rock and roll (on vinyl!) if I am cleaning or need to get things done. Led Zeppelin can be the most inspiring.

Favorite part of the studio process?

I love the studio process so much. I think my favorite part is creating and stacking vocal parts. It’s so satisfying to hear ideas outside of your own head!!

Biggest lesson learned in your career so far?

I feel like my career has been one constant evolving lesson- I think the greatest summary for what I’ve learned is don’t limit yourself by holding on to a particular outcome. The music business is SO unpredictable- it’s nearly impossible to make accurate projections. I have noticed I am so much happier and more successful if I am open to however it’s going to shake out. If there are a million potential outcomes and only one is going to make me happy, that means there are 999,999 options that make me upset. I just don’t like those odds! I focus now on there are a million potential outcomes and I can’t wait to see what they are!

Any mantras before starting in your career so far?

I love that you’re asking about mantras because toward the end of answering the previous question, I was thinking of one of my favorite mantras that I repeat often “Everything is working out in my favor!” I also have held onto one from a fellow artist I admire so much- Ruby Amanfu- she spoke at a writing class I took once and said she uses the mantra “I am destined for greatness and it is unfolding.” I repeat that often and embody it!
