In 2021, Chevel released her debut EP Everybody’s Got A Story, which reflected a traditional country sound. Recorded in Nashville the set features cuts written by acclaimed songwriters, Kacey Musgraves, Shane McAnally, Brandy Clark and more.

“I was singing almost before I could walk, surrounded by the music that my parents listened to – country music and classic rock,” Chevel shared at the time. “Loretta Lynn, Reba, Tanya Tucker and The Chicks are some of my musical heroes. What they have accomplished in their careers inspires me to stay true to who I am – embrace my traditional sound, style and love for storytelling.”

Indeed, her most recent single, released earlier this year in February, is a homage to Loretta co-written with Kellys Collins and Casey James Wood called “Lookin’ for Loretta.” Chevel wrote on Instagram before the song’s release, “This song is so special to me and i’m excited to share it with all of you.”
