Songstress, Mycah Chevalier, is the new sultry and soulful vocalist who stirs a hypnotic blend of jazz, soul, and blues, spiced with hints of her Creole roots from her upbringing in her music. She has been compared to the likes of Maysa Leak, and late Phyllis Hyman to name a few!

Biography

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!

Lyrics

Back n Forth

Written By: Mycah Chevalier

Chorus
Back and forth we go
Where we’ll stop nobody knows
Got a feelin we’ve been steelin time (borrowed time)
Back and forth we go
Where we stop no one will know
Sand keeps sifting, time keeps shifting
Don’t let it pass us by

Verse I
The hustle and bustle of the world today
Leads us on, leads us astray
Too many things too little time
Too many worried ‘bout
“gettin what’s mine”

Chorus

Verse II
In the race to succeed we often forget
To take time and feed our souls
We climb and we push to get to the top
Yet can’t reach our spiritual goals

Bridge
Never give up or let go
Take your time, let your blessings flow
Every moment precious… ready to fly
Never give up or let go
Take your time, let your blessings flow
We can’t let time pass us by

Chorus
