TIDAL Rising Artist of the Week: A.CHAL

With TIDAL Rising we’re constantly showcasing new music from our favorite up-and-coming artists across all genres, and each week we pick one artist in particular to shine our spotlight on. Meet this week’s TIDAL Rising Artist of the Week: A.CHAL

* * *

Born in Peru, and raised between Queens, New York and Chelsea, Massachusetts, rising artist A.CHAL is all about his Incan roots. The first type of music he heard and fell in love with was Peruvian music, a rich mix of indigenous Andean music. He describes himself as a spiritual person, seeking balance as his parents and culture have taught him.

His inability to fit in at school drove him to develop a special appreciation for music, which later led to creating sounds with his own unique style, which blends ethereal trap, R&B and soul.

This March, he released “To The Light,” his first single since his 2016 debut album, Welcome To GAZI.  Co-produced with Phil Good Music, along with writing the self-reflecting lyrics, A.CHAL performed the hit at this year’s SXSW and has since dropped the tracks, “Matrix” and “Love N Hennessy.”

On June 2, A.CHAL will release his new mixtape, On GAZ, a project he tells TIDAL he’s been working on non-stop. While the essence of CHAL’s music will remain the same, you can expect to hear different rhythms and even a couple of songs en español.

This week, we’d like you to get to know A.CHAL a bit better. Stay tuned for an interview with the singer, as well as a special guest playlist of his  favorites.
