Not only does Chantilly have a charming blog filled with beautiful photographs and inspiration, she is a talented songwriter, musician and vocalist. I have been reading her blog for a long time and love following her life in New York and journey to release her new album. Her new EP is called "Up to the Moon" and she sent me a copy to listen to. You can't help but judge the book by the cover and her album cover is just as whimsical and lovely as the music on the CD. I immediately thought of artists like Regina Spektor, Jenny Lewis and Neko Case when I started listening. Her songs contain genuine emotion and magic. This girl has a voice! You can sample her album here or enjoy the acoustic video below to give this singing beauty a listen.
Congratulations, Chantilly, on raising over $2000 to make your CD a dream come true! It is amazing what a network of bloggers and friends can make happen. She would like to spread the love and is offering both of her albums to one lucky reader! Here is more about her and how you can enter the giveaway.
Hi there! I'm Chantilly, your friendly neighborhood singer/ songwriter. I sing about stupid crushes and write the best rainy day songs you've ever cried to. In short- I'm a crazy cat lady, lifestyle blogger, and singer-songwriter. Originally being a singer-turned-songwriter-turned-guitar player, I started my blog in order to keep my audience tuned into my musical happenings. I quickly found that I had tons of other interests that I liked writing about. Like most people of the blogosphere, I think of myself as a creative renaissance woman. It all started with music and singing/ writing songs- but I also love cooking, design, DIY projects, photography, and more, and meeting lots of new internet friends all the time.
