Biography

The 23-years old Amsterdam-based singer-songwriter Chagall is not just making dubstep, or pop. No; she combines these influences and adds a good deal of her own raw soulful sound and lyrics. Chagalls songs are a powerful testimony of what moves her. Holland was surprised this summer by her song ‘Breathe’, recorded in cooperation with producers duo Bronstibock.
‘James Blake eat your heart out’ The Dutch pop magazine OOR wrote in its raving review of its catchy, modern dub-pop sound.
DJ Rob Stenders of 3FM radio couldn’t get enough of it, made her perform live in his program several times, and proclaimed Chagall ‘Serious Talent’.
Chagall: a frail, classy, blond lady with an unexpected love of glitters and glasses, and gifted with a voice that managed to warm up even the icy summer of 2011.
At this moment Chagall is into the final stage of recording her debut EP, released this fall, and started touring the country.

Chagall is inspired by the energy of the dubstep beats of Alex Clare, by the raw pop sound of Trixie Whitley and the soulful intensity of Donnie Hathaway. But the first song that gave her an audience had an intriguing, almost minimalistic acoustic sound . In 2010 this song ‘By Your Side’ was the title song for the acclaimed movie ‘Tirza’, nominated as the Dutch entry to the Oscars.

Beginning 2011 she decided to remix a number of her songs together with Bronstibock, adding dubstep beats.
Since May 2011 she is performing with guitarist Léon Palmen, culminating in Paradiso performances for the Amsterdam Singer-songwriter competition ‘Mooie Noten’.
This cooperation resulted in the formation of the Chagall band, adding Leonard Busselaar (keys) and Sander van Truijen (drums), that succeeds in playing live both the acoustic and electronic sounds of Chagall.
