Chantelle Ernandez - My Forever

A fresh new lovers EP from Curtis Lynch and Necessary Mayhem Classics.


All-conquering London producer Curtis Lynch has put his mark on dancehall with his Necessary Mayhem label, and roots with his subsidiary Maroon. For 2011 he's taking his new Necessary Mayhem Classics imprint in a lovers direction with belting first signing, Kingston's Chantelle Ernandez.

Chantelle ErnandezPianist, dancer and actor Chantelle has worked as a backing vocalist with Gregory Isaacs and the Wailers as well as topping the Japanese charts as part of quartet UNITZz. She became a Necessary artist while Curtis was over in Jamaica and new EP 'My Forever' should be one of the first essential releases of the New Year. From opener Good Man, through the rock-infused Hotta Fire (“I will never shrink me to make you feel higher. You’ve got to climb up my ladder”) to closer Sort Me Out (previously issued on the Digital Acoustics compilation over a remake of Champion Lover by Lynch’s favourite producer Gussie Clarke) these songs are all about high standards in music and life. Hernandez' self penned-lyrics crackle with insight and ingenuity while her powerful but controlled voice suits Lynch's bass-heavy production to a tee.

Says Curtis "As long as I do my job and my ears are good and I can trust a singer, they don’t have to be well established. No disrespect to the older artists but now I have established Necessary Mayhem, Maroon and myself as a producer, we have to build."

If you want lovers music with added Vitamin “B”, 'My Forever' is out on iTunes January 11th.
