Michelle Chamuel – ‘Face The Fire’

Michelle Chamuel, who won America’s hearts on the fourth season of NBC’s The Voice  is proud to premiere her new single, title track “Face The Fire” on E ntertainment Weekly. Her forthcoming full-length album will be dropping on February 10th 2015 via The EndRecords / ADA, and the high-energy lead single is now available on iTunes, CLICK HERE to download.


“‘Face the Fire’ is about the innate desire in you to “go for it” and follow your passion. It can be daunting – but at some point you just start going after what you burn for. That’s facing the fire.” – Michelle Chamuel

Considering all the emotion contained within it, Face the Fire came together at a breakneck pace. For three weeks this past winter, Chamuel and her collaborators, Tyler Duncan and Theo Katzman – college pals and My Dear Disco band members – holed up in Chamuel’s home, building the album from musical nuggets each had brought to the sessions. The trio alchemizes several genres from across the history of music – spanning from 80s pop (“Rock It”) and melodic house (“Weight of the World”) to VHS-infused reggae (“Money”).

The title track on the album is no exception – showcasing the convergence of Chamuel’s vision and her collaborators ingenuity.  “Face the Fire” serves as a sort of pulsing mission statement, a vamping call to action that Chamuel relates to her own experience in harnessing musical passion.  This track, which like the rest of thealbum was recorded and produced in Chamuel and Duncan’s home studios, features a tapestry of interlocking percussion, surf-punk bass tones, and a rousing call and answer between Chamuel and her choir.  “The imagery I get when singing the song is that I’m in front of a big, camp-like fire. There are people all around, and I’m not sure if they’re ghosts or strangers, but they chime in while I sing. It’s almost a trance-like state – being pulled towards this fire. Everyone is being pulled towards it.”
