"guiltypleasures - "lovestories""

... "Turn it Back" and "Anticipation" are two old-school love ballads. "Anticipation," a duet featuring Mycah Chevalier and Sol Edler will make listeners recall some of those Atlantic Star duets from the 1980s. "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.

...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.

"Listen out for 2009"

A female soloist called Mycah Chevalier contributes to 5 songs on the album. As with Sol's tracks, these songs are of the highest order. Mycah can sing. No 'sing every note on the scale except the one she is supposed to sing' thing going on here! Her delivery is disciplined and hugely pleasing. - Soulwalking

"Bounce-Worthy: Mycah Chevalier"

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.

"She is Inspiring (Mycah Chevalier)"

Happy Monday,

If you sprinkle a little of Beyonce’s stage presence with a cup of Chaka Khan and an ounce of Roberta Flack you get the voice of Mycah Chevalier. She doesn’t know it yet (until she reads this lol) but I am actually her biggest fan. Whenever I am in D.C. and she is performing I am either sitting in the front row tapping my red stiletto to her sultry sounds or I am the first one on the dance floor when the beat drops ;). Her music is absolutely fascinating. She recently launched her debut album and has received amazing feedback from her fans and great accolades from press and radio stations. Check out her music and support this amazing artist.

Born in the Nation’s Capital, Mycah embarked upon her professional music and performing arts journey at age 5. During her childhood years, Mycah also performed in a host of musical productions through Howard University Children’s Theater, The LaVerne Reed Dancers, Kennedy Center’s Children's Theater and Washington Choral Arts Society. Realizing how drawn she was to the music of such greats as Phyllis Hyman and Sarah Vaughn, Mycah decided to hone her vocal studies under the tutelage of Mr. Ricky Payton Sr., Founder and Director of BET’s Urban Nation HIP-HOP Choir and HBO’s City at Peace.
Always striving to be the best at which she put her mind, the young prodigy graduated early from high school, majored in Music and Communications during her
Howard University years, and earned music and academic scholarships from Mt. Vernon College, where she furthered her vocal studies under the tutelage of Washington Opera’s mezzo-sopranos Linda Allison. Blessed with an irresistible and soulful voice, Mycah’s music is in a class of her own. She has shared the stage with several legends and notable artists such as The Whispers, Patti Labelle, Luther Vandross, and Arturo Sandoval. Working with Vandross was an amazing “As he was every bit of the artist that he portrayed…he made me feel every note and he reinforced my desire to do the same for my listeners.”
Mycah’s tremendous vocal and performing talents led to her casting by the playwright and choreographer Debbie Allen in the theatric production of Soul Possessed, starring world-renowned recording artists, Patti Labelle, and trumpet player, Arturo Sandoval. 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 confirmed that I should never let anyone stop me from my dream. Her comments led me to seize an opportunity to sing across the world.” At the end of a 4-year US touring stint, Mycah spent 3 months in Ethiopia and Sweden, where she was the opening act for recording artist Ja Rule during the Ethiopian New Year Celebration.
The newest chapter of Mycah’s journey begins with the release of her debut CD Roux’s Fantasy. The CD, which features 11 original songs, has already taken the U.S. and U. K. by storm! “Forgiveness”, “Back N Forth” and "Thinkin'" are getting countless spins in New York, Philly, California, overseas, and on both The New Capital Jazz Lounge, and Joe Gorham’s show Legato Lycx on WHUR World. “Anticipation (The Remix)”( Featuring Mycah and Kal El) from Bass Player, Rick White’s debut album guiltypleasures, “lovestories”) has remained in regular rotation on D.C.’s Own WHUR 96.3FM since April 2010! Currently, Mycah frequents area jazz & soul hot spots, Bliss Coffee and Wine Bar, Ben’s Next Door, & Blues Alley in DC, and has performed at both Ashford & Simpson’s Sugar Bar and SIP Lounge in New York. Stay tuned, because there is so much in store for Mycah Chevalier!
