E.H.M.P.: Congrats on your recent 1st place win at the Elegant Hoodness Musical Program monthly showcase in NY. How was your experience at The E.H.M.P. and how did you feel when you were announced winner?
P. CHALET: I enjoyed myself. Everyone showed me a lot of love and support. I definitely think that it was well worth it! I was honored being announced as the winner, being that I was an artist from another city competing against very tough competition from NY. I love the city and I really enjoyed myself. It was just an all around incredible experience.
E.H.M.P.: Tell me what inspires you to continue to pursue a career in music?
P. CHALET: My passion for music inspires me. How it makes me feel, how it allows me to express myself, and being able to relate with others through my music. My parents also inspired me because they were both musicians.
E.H.M.P.: Who is your favorite R&B performer, your favorite composer and your favorite lyricist and why?
P. CHALET: My favorite performer is Tina Turner, because she captivated her audience, she was a very strong singer, confident, and I loved her passion and how personable she was on stage. I have to go with Timberland, hands down, as my favorite composer, because he is one of the most creative people. He has his own sound and has worked with some of the top artist in the industry, and I am privileged to have been able to work with him. Kanye West is my favorite lyricist, because he is one of the most consistent rappers in the game. He’s always on his grind and always on top.
E.H.M.P.: Do you have any formal training as a vocalist and how important is it as a vocalist to continue to improve your skills?
P. CHALET: No formal training; but my father, being a musician himself will help me from time to time on my vocals, and being from a musically inclined family, I naturally have a good idea of what to do to enhance my skills and improve myself.
E.H.M.P.: Where can our readers listen and or download some of your music?
