A North East singer with links to the Tyne Valley is about to release her latest single.

Channy, who was on the books of High Mickley star-maker Julie Miles, has enjoyed a successful lockdown period.

She featured on the line-up of Klub Kids Summer Mania festival alongside Atomic Kitten and other high-profile artists at Newcastle’s Virgin Money Unity Arena – which was famously the world’s first ever socially-distanced venue.

Since then, Newcastle-born Channy has spent time working on her latest original single, which will be released on Friday, November 27.

The Rest of Me is the second single release from Channy, and has been described as an emotive pop track that can “really resonate and evoke a shared emotion within the listener.”

She said: “Creating new material sends my mind to a vulnerable place, it takes a lot of courage for me as an artist to step out and reveal my own thoughts and feelings.

“I wrote this song about my personal struggles. I’ve often felt misunderstood and I’m forever trying to find happiness from the inside out.

“It’s like searching for that missing jigsaw piece within yourself.

“Everyone can relate to fighting their own battles, but learn never to rush yourself, everything will fit into place when the time is right.”

The track was co-written with established North East born singer/songwriter Jamie Lee Harrison and co-produced by Jamie and music producer Rob Boak.

The Rest of Me will be available to download from the end of the week on all the usual streaming platforms.
