Inspiring Songwriter and Body Positive Model CHEL Releases Timely New Single “Nasty Woman”

THE INSPIRING SINGER / SONGWRITER / MODEL / RADIO HOST CONVEYS A POWERFUL MESSAGE IN THIS ANTHEM OF FEMALE EMPOWERMENT

TRACK + LYRIC VIDEO OUT NOWLISTEN // WATCHOFFICIAL MUSIC VIDEO COMING SOON“Opening a fuzzy guitar riff that would make Sister Rosetta Tharpe beam with pride, Chel’s ‘Nasty Woman’ kicks down the door, shatters the glass ceiling, and looks to burn the patriarchy down to ashes. Chel delivers an anthem for every woman who has ever been ‘overlooked’ and ‘underpaid’ while flipping the script on the Trumpian insult, ‘Nasty Woman.’ Chel’s new song displays a canny eye when it comes to songwriting. Instead of unleashing pure, thrashing rage, ‘Nasty Woman’ is a trudging groove, a deep march that expresses the resilience of women’s fight for equality while also conveying exhaustion – and just how tired that women must be of putting up with all this nonsense.”HOLLYWOOD LIFE

Born in Springfield, Illinois, Chel began taking music lessons at five years old. Her father, a dedicated music lover, constantly played music in the house; and her uncle, a musician, regularly let her come over and sing with his band. Of course, Springfield isn’t known for its music scene, so Chel and her dad would often drive to St. Louis to see concerts. St. Louis also provided Chel her first big opportunity in music. Though Chel was dedicated to pursuing a life in music, her journey proved full of unexpected obstacles. She had every reason to give up. Instead, she prevailed, and has since become a role model and body positive ambassador for droves of young women. In 2017, Chel was hired to host her own primetime show on DASH Radio. In 2019, Chel’s summer tour schedule took her to Austin for South by SouthwestSummerfest in Milwaukee, and Riverfest on the East Coast. She has headlined Pridefest in St. Louis and performed at CurvyCon in New York City, allowing the two lanes of her career – singing and modeling – to intersect. To date, Chel has been featured in Billboard, Sports Illustrated IG, Celebmix, Groknation, Galore, Earmilk, and Riptide. Her brand endorsements include FabFitFun, FashioNova, GitiOnline, and Good American. She has also appeared as a runway model during New York Fashion Week and Anthropologie in L.A.   Inspired and influenced by artists like Stevie Wonder, Elton John, Freddie Mercury (Queen), Hall & Oates, Aretha Franklin, Alicia Keys, Adele, Rihanna and Lizzo, Chel continues to defy the odds while spreading love and positivity. “I’m going to keep writing about things I care about, like self-care, gender equality, racial equality, and mental health awareness,” says Chel. “I’m just going to keep pushing. I’m continually amazed by the amount of progress my team and I have been able to make. I don’t like to plan too far ahead because I try to live in the present. I am so excited to see where this wonderful life takes me over the next few years.”
