Chanelle and Friends
Kiwi singer/songwriter Chanelle burst onto the kid’s music scene in 2013 when her song 'If I Was A Fuzzy Buzzy Bumblebee' won the APRA New Zealand's Best Children's Song award. Her new album The Little Green Turtle and Other Songs for Kids is full of things that children will love – animals, dancing, getting messy as well as unicorns and rainbows.
Onstage, the Chanelle and Friends band bring her magical songs to life with interactive and fun performances that will have the whole family dancing and singing along.
Chanelle played her first piano concert aged 4, and has relentlessly followed her passion for music ever since. She discovered her love for songwriting at 18 and has independently released albums as well as performed across New Zealand.
In 2010, Chanelle spent three months in Boston honing her craft with songwriting guru Pat Pattison, who features her writing in his latest book Songwriting Without Boundaries. Her craving for artistic development and inspiration has also taken her Nashville, Canada, Hawaii and Australia, where she now calls Melbourne home.
