The Voice’s out runner-up Michelle Chamuel announced via Facebook that she’ll release her first entirely self-produced album as The Reverb Junkie. The album All I Want will drop on Sept. 10 of this year.
Chamuel won the hearts of The Voice judges this season with a blazing version of Katy Perry’s “I Kissed a Girl.” Along with her Coach Usher Chamuel continued to wow audiences with killer renditions of “True Colors,” “Grenade,” and “Just Give Me a Reason.” But her solo project promises to be something altogether different from her The Voice performances.
“This album is quite different from anything I've done before. Every sound came through my mind. All voices you hear come from me. All the notes were played by me (though some birds outside and floor creaking make a cameo - if you listen closely),” Chamuel wrote about the project on her Facebook page.
Billing All I Want as her “solo electronic project” Chamuel goes on to say of the album, “I got to use my voice as an instrument and play with the different sounds it can make. I wrote melodies on bass, piano, strings, synthesizer, guitar, organ, and glockenspiel. I acted like my own choir. I programmed drums to get you to nod your head where the music makes me feel like nodding my head. I kept writing and re-arranging, adding and taking away, until it sounded just how I wanted it to.”
