Chezale, aka “Lady Maverick”, is a singer/songwriter/emcee out of Tucson, Arizona, originally from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. With distinct, sharply focused writing & a powerful-yet-accessible stage presence, she delivers intelligent messages without ever losing her groove. Possessing a sound that encompasses a bit of ’90s Hip-Hop imbued with an R&B flavor and a “New Skool” edge. She’s earned logical comparisons to Lauryn Hill & a young MC Lyte, while still managing to have a strong voice that is all her own.

Chezale has been classically trained in choir throughout her schooling and in musical theatre. She’s been able to use that part of her background in multiple stage productions like ‘The Doowop Divas’ touring Arizona and Florida in 2015 & 2017 and once singing background for Grammy award-winning crooner Michael Buble alongside acapella group Naturally7.

In 2007, Chezale recorded her debut album MY STORY…The Making of a Maverick. In 2009, she was the only contestant chosen from Arizona and 1 of 13 contestants to compete in the west coast regional Shiekh Music/Reebok Grand Finale in Burbank, CA. As a result, a song from her debut album, “El-Oh-Vee-E” was chosen as part of a major compilation hosted by DJ Carisma out of Los Angeles, CA. In 2010, Chezale was also a finalist in the professional category of the 17th Street Idol Singer/Songwriter competition. Her music has received radio play at HOT98.3, KXCI, 99.1FM Downtown Radio & several other independent stations nationally and internationally.

Chezale’s song “Hip Hop Nation” from her sophomore release MAVMUZIK was hand-picked by the legendary Chuck D of Public Enemy as ‘Spit of the Week – Songs That Mean Something’ in 2014. Her music has been placed on several web series, including Black&SexyTV. She has opened for artists like Akil the Emcee of Jurassic 5, Slick Rick “The Ruler”, The Heiroglyphics Crew & Princess Nokia. Keeping close to her Hip Hop & community roots, Chezale has also played the Tucson Hip Hop Festival in 2016, 2017 & 2019. She has also had the honor of playing the legendary House of Blues San Diego stage.
