Chela is an Australian/Filipino artist, musician, songwriter, producer, and filmmaker originally. She began producing music on Logic software and writing rap breakdowns for her sister’s songs at age 12. She taught herself how to play bass guitar so she could start a band. Shortly after establishing an all-female punk pop band with her best friends, they toured Australia extensively for 3 years.
”Chela” was born self-releasing her first single ‘Plastic Gun’. In 2014 Chela performed at SXSW, Coachella. In 2017 Chela released single “Bad Habit” via premiere on NPR who said “it slithers and strikes like classic Shakira”. Recently Chela released a duet featuring fellow-Australian songstress Banoffee called “Shut You Up”, an anthem about switching off from technology for a moment.
