Chantelle Mussell is a Canadian singer/songwriter based out of Victoria, BC, Canada. She grew up in small town Alberta in the 1990s, born into a large family of lively, talented musicians. At a very young age, she discovered the magnetic euphoria of singing, writing, and performing with her guitar.
Mussell’s debut EP showcases haunting and dreamy blues/folk songs. Her lyrics chronicle the visceral experiences of life, love, and heartbreak with words that resonate with your deepest, darkest secrets and desires. Chantelle is a clever songwriter with the smooth, silky voice of a gritty little angel that is sure to rattle your bones.
Chantelle has opened for Canadian label artists Aaron Pritchett and The Washboard Union. She has been a strong presence for many years in the Victoria music scene, fronting the band Mussell and the Flex.
‘Perfect Little Failure,’ a heartbreaking pilgrimage into love and infidelity, is the lead single off Mussell's self-titled debut album. She explores the parallels between toxic relationships and toxic substances, revelling in the opportunity that awaits those who escape these addictions. 'Perfect Little Failure' is a wistfully beautiful self-love story illustrating the rebirth of the female mind, body, and spirit.
