Living Life Grand

by Chakra Bleu

Chakra Bleu has released her 9th album. This unique Americana/Country/Western genre includes all the spices of love; a hauntingly powerful ‘Me Too’; Native American Indian song; a proud Southern-Rock tongue’n cheek song that includes passion intermingled with a Red F-150 truck, and a song roughin’ it in on the South Fork; Smith County Tennessee. Put on your hat and let’s drive! She has received airplay from various cuts off her CD’s on Top 40, A/C, Country, AAA, Americana radio in the USA as well as Europe. She has been the Spotlight artist at Nashville’s beloved Bluebird Cafe and BMI Showcases; playing top listening venues in Music City USA; as well as being granted the ‘Arena award Feb.1999. (This prestigious honor has been granted to few other acts such as Reba McEntire, Dolly Parton, Jo Dee Messina, etc. who have contributed an inspiring presence in their community.)

Review by Paul Castoe (June 2019)

Chakra Bleu's latest project "Living Life Grand" is a wonderful trip through many of the styles of music that make up what is now considered Americana. Her beautiful melodies remind us of what's been missing lately. Image 12 songs that don't ALL SOUND ALIKE! There should be a number of singles here, and I think "I'd Rather Stand Alone " could be a signature hit.
I hope you enjoy "Living Life Grand " as much as I did.

Quoted by Dave Carew for Nashville Underground
“Chakra Bleu is - hands down-one of the most original and distinctive Americana/Pop-Rock artists ever to grace the underground Nashville music scene. Inspired by everything from the styling of bands like Heart
and the Cowboy Junkies, to transcendent New Age thought, she has forged, over the past decade, some of
the most uplifting, eclectic, thought-provoking, and empowering music ever created in Music City,USA.”

A festive vibe of Island-Reggae, R&B, Pop/Rock had fans playing her songs from ‘Our Own Paradise’, (Chakra’s eighth album), on their favourite summer mixes. Her first media single release, ”We Shall Overcome’, digs in with a message pertaining to equality & justice. It’s empowering vibe leads one to feel what this artist really is about: INTEGRITY. This sincere, and yet rebel infused INTEGRITY gives
credence to her compelling presence as not only a successful recording artist, yet also that of an insightful messenger and leader. This album, received favourable response on the Americana chart along with the crossover single ‘Be My Love’ reaching #5 on the Indie World Country Music Report.

Chakra Bleu’s 7th CD ‘ALL OF ME’ had amazing chart action: The title
single ‘All Of Me’ charted #2 on Top 40 as well as #1 on Indie Tope 40, holding for FIVE weeks! That’s not all - yes and then #7 on Top 100! The second single, ’The Shadow’ went to #4 on (NMW) Top 40.

Her 6th CD ‘SOUVENIR’ had five singles simultaneously bedazzle: Top 40 Country Main & Indie Charts (sts) with ‘Weathered the Storm’ (#8); ‘She Walks Alone’ (#17); Top 40 Main Charts with ‘Sabotage‘ scoring TOP DEBUT single & charting (#8); ‘Anyday Now’ charting at (#10) for three weeks, as well as(#4) on Top 30 Indie Charts!; ‘Addicted To You’, on Americana Charts,and also making the Spotlight on Cashbox Magazine.

Chakra Bleu’s fifth album single from YOU’RE THE ONE, ‘When I Hold Your Hand’ charged AAA and Americana airwaves, charting #5 on STS Top 30 Indie Chart and #27 on STS Top 40 Main Chart! Her prior single, ‘Hopelessly In Love’ from the Seize the Day album, scored big as well, making it to #16 on the national A/C chart.
