Great art takes time to create. In the case of South African-born actor, singer, dancer, voice-artist and all-round performer Chantal Stanfield, she’s invested more than a decade into refining her gift of music.

With the wait finally over, our collective reward is the RJ Benjamin produced “Walk It Off”, Chantal’s stellar debut single! It flirts with funk, dances with disco, and powers through pop elements, while lyrically “Walk It Off” speaks to self-love, empowerment and seeing obstacles as learning curves, not stumbling blocks.

No stranger to the entertainment industry, Chantal graduated with a Theatre and Performance degree from UCT in 2005, and can currently be seen in the popular kykNet soapie Getroud Met Rugby, playing the role of Lindy Davids, the team’s physiotherapist.

Besides her impressive television and film portfolio, Chantal’s talents extend into the world of dance and live performance too. With various cabaret and tribute shows, including stints in the Seychelles, London and Turkish tours of 80’s Mania and Queen, Spanish tours of 80’s All Stars, and her own one-woman cabaret Ladies First (directed by long-time mentor and cabaret doyenne Natalia Da Rocha), Chantal’s a rare combination of seasoned, celebrated and successful.

Her theatre work comprises Annie JR – The Musical, drama Mixed Metaphors and seasons at Cape Town’s burlesque supper club Vaudeville. She headlined the touring Afrikaans musical Die Sideboard, as Stella De Bruyn, caused a stir in Luigi Pirendello’s Six Characters in Search of an Author, as The Stepdaughter, rocked out in Rock Of Ages and enjoyed sell-out crowds this past festive season at The Baxter Theatre in her one-woman play From Koe’siestes To Kneidlach.

As 2018 unravels Chantal, along with her debut single “Walk It Off”, is prepped and ready to influence, engage and entice an entirely new audience with her powerful pop music statement.

Her appeal is immediate and “Walk It Off” intoxicating and confirmatory of a young artist whose voice will be heard and applauded, above and beyond the multiple standing ovations her litany of work’s already charmed.
