Meaty, beaty, big and bouncy, The One, The Only… sees Chantal putting a modern twist on early ’60s femme-pop. She introduces the disc with a thick-grooved lead single, ‘Bite Your Tongue,’ which rcrdlbl.com described as a ‘soulful, bluesy pop number that should be a hit with fans of singers like Adele and Lily Allen.’
‘When people ask what the music sounds like, I say, imagine Tina Turner fronting Outkast at Bette Midler’s bat mitzvah,’ says Chantal.
Produced by Grammy-winning, industry veteran, Steven Miller, The Endangered is a soulful collection of five beautifully written and passionately performed songs about love, loss, living and learning. This debut EP showcases the Endangered’s unique blend of vintage soul, adult contemporary R&B, rock, hip-hop and jazz influences.
The Endangered features the standout single ‘Calling On You,’ as well as ‘Broke Heart,’ the first song ever written by the band. The Endangered is vocalist Maiya Sykes, guitarist Nick Block, bassist Frank Abraham and drummer Gene Coye.
