Biography

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!
