ARTIST FOCUS: CHA:DY



Pronounced /shadi/, stylised Cha:dy, taken from the Arabic for “melodious”, perfectly defines the artist, singer and songwriter.


Born and raised in Paris, France; Cha:dy moved to London to pursue her musical dreams

influenced by artists such as Amy Winehouse, Lauryn Hill and MIA, whom she credits for her

Alt-R&B- Urban Jazz style. As a teenager she started a girl band with her high school

classmates where they performed in and around venues in Paris, developing her stagecraft

and passion for performing. Whilst working as a session singer, her vocal talents were

spotted by various electronic producers including Belgian producer diMaro which saw their

collaboration ‘History’ receive over a million plays on Spotify.


Her debut EP ‘My Feet On The Ground was released independently in 2017 to critical acclaim. Featuring on the influential Berlin blog ArtParasites (3 million followers) and playson Reprezent Radio, the EP perfectly represented a twentysomething experiencing life, loveand heartbreak for the first time.


Feeling a change in direction, her latest single Like A Boi sees her take a fresher, upbeat direction, exploring themes of female empowerment and patriarchy. Playlisted on the Spotify

Fresh Finds: Poptronix playlist and receiving praise from Record of the Day, Atwood

Magazine and Indie Shuffle, the single is a start of a new sound cultivated from her many

different influences. Already making a name for herself on the London live circuit with her

enigmatic and engaging live shows and a notable performer, she has performed on famous

stages including O2 Academy Islington, 229 Club, Under The Bridge, Sofar Sounds, I Luv
