Chantel Charis is a singer-songwriter from Northern Illinois. It is likely that you have never heard a voice quite like hers, able to change from an etherial and haunting quality to a dark and moody timbre. Her music explores the limits of traditional songwriting with her versatile sound and thoughtful lyrics. Chantel enjoys working with dense string textures in her music, a quality likely acquired through playing the violin from the age of five. She writes music for the ukulele, violin, piano, guitar, and sometimes lap dulcimer. In addition to songwriting, Chantel also writes for various orchestral settings, often expanding and orchestrating her original songs.
