The release of her highly anticipated debut album 'Hungry' is just the beginning of 19 year-old ChianoSky. Her mix of seductive jazzy pop has seen her racing up the airplay charts in South Africa, showcasing her as one of South Africa's most exciting, fresh and talented new discoveries.
'Hungry' has already spawned the hits 'Sick Sick', 'Walking Away' and her current single 'Home Sweet Home', all of which have enjoyed nationwide playlistings on top radio stations like 5fm and 94.5 Highveld Stereo.
"Hungry is such a powerful word. It summed up exactly how I feel about everything that is happening in my life at the moment. I am starved for experience, hungry for it, and I am willing to fight for it. That's really what this album represents for me," she says.An original voice and style
With influences ranging from afar afield as Nina Simone, Etta James, Marvin Gaye, Curtis Mayfield, Adele and especially Amy Winehouse, ChianoSky has found an original voice and style all her own. The album, which has been a year in the making, has seen ChianoSky collaborate with some of the top producers in the industry, including the famous UK based Pete "Boxsta" Martin.
ChianoSky is not an artist to sit behind the scenes and let other people create her story. She insists on being a part of the entire process, from vision and creative concept, music video, photo shoots, album artwork design and beyond.
