Chantelle Delaney started singing before she could walk properly, and at the age of six, she picked up her first instrument – a guitar. Music quickly became her life.
As a child performing on Australian stages, Chantelle was inspired and as a teenager, she began singing at the Prestigious Trinity College of London. Now a young lady armed with a soaring voice and acoustic guitar, Chantelle possesses both a witty personality and engaging presence.
Chantelle has performed around the world, being heard by millions of people on many TV & radio shows and alongside artists such as: Grammy Award Winners David Foster, Olivia Newton-John and LeAnn Rimes, as well as, Jimmy Barnes and Slim Dusty, to name a few. Recent ‘good will’ work has seen Chantelle entertain Australian and New Zealand wartime troops in East Timor and the Solomon Islands on Tour de Force tours. Chantelle also performed the Australian National Anthem at the Gold Coast “Lexmark Indy 300″ car race and at the Rugby Union test match (Australian Wallabies V South African Springbok), both shows televised worldwide.
In 2008, Chantelle was personally invited by Olivia Newton-John to join her and other international personalities (Sir Cliff Richard, Joan Rivers, Leeza Gibbons and Dannii Minogue) in the fight against cancer. “The Great Walk to Beijing” attracted media attention around the world. Chantelle’s involvement led her to singing a duet with Olivia at sold-out live performances which resulted in great reviews.
Chantelle is currently busy writing and recording her debut album collaborating with Grammy Award winning songwriters. “I want my album to reflect the wonderful journey I have had so far. The songs on my album will be positive, warm and spontaneous. Even the songs that aren’t about happy experiences have a sense of one being in control of their life and moving in a good direction”.
So as we all anxiously wait to see what she does next, one thing can be made quite clear thus far – if it’s Chantelle Delaney, you’re going to love it.
