Born and raised in New Rochelle, NY, singer-songwriter Gem Chantelle returns with her fourth single of the year, ‘Temporary’, and it will certainly find a permanent place in your heart. A remarkable pop number that combines ethereal melodies to convey its story, the track was produced by Jamie McArdle. Certainly turning heads within the streaming world, Gem’s discography has been streamed over 700,000 times on Spotify alone.
Sharing her thoughts on the vivid new single, Gem Chantelle explains, “I wrote Temporary about the constant changes that we’re faced with as we grow. Relationships come and go, along with friendships and everything else. I’ve always struggled with the idea that nothing is permanent, but now I understand that change can offer so many possibilities if you embrace it.”
Bathed in ear-worm melodies and an exceptional vocal tone, ‘Temporary’ is a glistening single bound to become even a summer hit or a TikTok sensation – or both! Influenced by the likes of Ariana Grande, James Blake, Rihanna and Sabrina Claudio to name a few, Gem Chantelle is instantly recognisable and is known for her honest lyricism.
A powerful songwriter that’s been through tough times over the years, Gem has always turned to music as a guiding light. After graduating high school, Gem went to Denver, Colorado for a songwriter’s expo – an experience that helped inspire many songs to come. “Covid happened in the middle of my first year out of High School, which put a halt to all things performing and recording. I learned to adjust to all the sudden drastic changes, and ultimately that’s how the idea for “Temporary” came,” Gem Chantelle explains.
Destined to become a household name, Gem Chantelle is certainly on the right path to getting 1 million monthly listeners and ‘Temporary’ completely confirms this.
