Music

"I Wish" is a song about regret sung from the perspective of the woman. Chevalier's vocals provide a mournful touch to a song that tells the story of a woman who allowed jealousy to destroy a relationship...Rick White's vocals give the song a healthy fill of gospel infused soul. If Chevalier, who emerges as the star of a group of four strong soloists, displayed her vulnerability on "I Wish," she puts her sensual side on display on the simmering but tasteful "The Urge," a song in which she gives the great Maysa Leak a run for her money."

Washington, DC (January 17, 2009) -- Vocalist and songwriter Mycah Chevalier celebrates the recent release of her debut CD, Roux’s Fantasy, on Sunday, February 15th at LeftBank in Adams Morgan. This can’t-miss affair will feature a live performance by the beautiful Mycah and her soul-stirring band, The Roux Project. Mycah’s captivating worldwide-release debut CD features 11 full-length songs, including radio favorite “Shadow of Your Smile.” Mycah’s smooth, sultry blend of jazz, soul, and blues, spiced with the in?uence of her Creole roots, takes you on an unforgettable, intimate musical journey. The rich, warm voice, the lush, emotive lyrics, and the elegant melodies will grab you at the outset and won’t let go. As Kim Hinds of Soul Bounce be?ttingly declares, “This is an album that you’ll ?nd yourself playing from beginning to end, then gladly pressing repeat.”
No stranger to the concert stage, Mycah has performed with such musical legends as The  Whispers, Patti Labelle and the late Luther Vandross. Mycah and The Roux Project’s credits don’t stop here. Collectively, have performed with jazz artists Najee, George Duke, Angela Bo?ll, Sol Edler, Jean Carne, Chosen, Miraj, Soul Patrol, Stress Free Band, Let It Flow, and Double Digit. Mycah’s CD is a gift for the soul, and Mycah live in concert is an awe-inspiring event that will envelop your mind, heart, and soul long after she has left the stage. The CD release party will begin at 12 p.m.  Admission is free. Drink specials will be offered along with an exquisite, unforgettable Sunday Brunch by chef duo Kemal Deger and Ndoyne Gorgui. - Jazz News


When the temperatures go down, my craving for stay-at-home-and-cuddle music goes up. That's where my latest discovery Mycah Chevalier comes in. With the release of her debut album, Roux's Fantasy, the Washington, DC native with Creole roots has mixed up quite a tasty concoction. Equal parts soul and jazz with a sprinkling of the blues, Roux's Fantasy is the musical equivalent of comfort food. Mycah may be from the DMV, but her music is a direct reflection of her heritage and influences. Reminiscent of Chante Moore, Mycah's music is definitely grown and undeniably sexy. Roux's Fantasy is the perfect soundtrack for lounging in front of the fireplace with your bun-bun. This is an album that you'll find yourself playing from beginning to end, then gladly pressing repeat. Chevalier also puts on a satisfying live show, so do yourself the favor and find her upcoming performance dates on her MySpace page. In the meantime, treat yourself or a loved one to Roux's Fantasy, available now via numerous online retailers.

Bio

Born and raised in our nation's Capital, Mycah Chevalier had a vision to cook up an ensemble reminiscent of her own Creole upbringing. Mycah will take you on a journey with sultry musings as smooth as Sade and Phyllis Hyman, then turn your head with soulful belts that lend a certain "Chaka-esq" flair! Mycah has had the pleasure and opportunity to open up for and or grace the stage with artists such as Luther Vandross, Patti LaBelle, and The Whispers, to name a few. As Mycah graciously reminisces, “I was so honored when Ms. Labelle took me by my hand to tell me I have a beautiful gift, and confirm that I should never let anyone stop me from my dream.” Ms. LaBelle’s inspiration led Mycah on a 4-year worldwide concert touring stint, with prolonged stops in Ethiopia and Sweden.

Collectively, Mycah's musicians have performed with artists such as Najee, George Duke, Roberta Flack, Tony Terry, Angela Bofill, Jean Carne & more. Currently, Mycah’s CD entitled "Roux's Fantasy" is selling on CD Baby, I-Tunes, Soul Brothers Records (UK), and a host of other online sites. The CD is also doing well on European radio and is playing on a few stations in the DC Area, Las Vegas, and her single “Forgiveness” has been in the top 10 for weeks on a radio show in New York!

What emerges from this well paired mixture of ingredients? A Recipe that's smooth, yet, funky, and sure to intoxicate and please any palate! Mycah Chevalier and The Roux Project definitely spice up the scene with their own unique fusion of Jazz and Soul!
