MY STORY


When someone is looking for a strong definition of who they are, it’s often a hard look in the mirror and a dig down underneath the surface to truly find it. But for Canadian country artist Mychela, she found the definition of who she is the moment that she first discovered music!

Surrounded by music from an early age – whether it be the church choir on Sunday’s or spirited family jams in her childhood home – it was the common thread of life for Mychela and the constant fuel for her passion, which would eventually lead to her role as the frontwoman of the band Sweet Tequila.

While fronting the group, Mychela was able to cut her country music teeth, but more importantly, she was able to bring forward the beginnings of who she wanted to be as her own unique artist and songwriter, leading to her eventual exit from group to pursue a solo career.

With country music’s biggest female stars listed as influences - ranging from the classic country icons to the greats that made 90’s country one of the genres most renowned eras - Mychela crafted a sound that had one foot firmly planted on her combined influences, and the other one stamped down on a line that defined her own signature flare which she first showed off on her 2020 single “I’m Not Gonna Stop.”

A built for honky-tonk style wrapped a tempo driven, two-steppin’ rhythm around her ultra-clean vocal that popped from your speakers wearing a knowing smile as she delivered an autobiographical lyric that saw her unapologetically taking a step out of her previous comfort zone and into her next chapter with a carefree attitude and a take what comes as it may mentality, encouraging through her own story to keep pushing for goals until, “everybody knows my name!”

Never one to ever slow down, Mychela is constantly performing, writing, and recording new music while continually challenging herself to elevate her signature feels to new heights as is evident with her latest single, “Who Let The Girls Out.”

The rousing, rollicking female anthem invites girls from anywhere – city or country – to come along for a girl’s nights out on town as Mychela playfully flirts her way through the lyrics that take the listener straight into the honky-tonk with them where they get a little wild, have a little fun, and let the guys buy them drinks all night long; a perfect addition to your own “girl’s night out” playlist. 

“Who Let The Girls Out” is only the first tease of things still to come from Mychela, though.

With co-writes lined up and many already underway, she continues defining herself and her unique sound, focusing on all her strongest attributes and craftily bringing them to the forefront as she refreshingly gives the listener modern twists on a decisively throwback vibe.

A new project is currently in the works, and although no official release date is announced yet, it is promised to be an entire definition of who Mychela is from its first note to its last!

Mychela has already shared the stage with several established acts including Julian Austin, Gord Bamford, Road Hammers, Lonestar, Washboard Union, Aaron Lines, Harlequin, Nazareth, and the late Shane Yellowbird to name a few. 

She was also recognized by The Josie Awards in 2021 with nominations in two categories, Modern Country Female Vocalist of the Year and Single of the  Year for “I’m Not Gonna Stop,” and has been nominated in 2022 for the Ken Flaherty Music Buffy Award; the renowned award given out for excellence in the arts. 

With these honors already listed on her resume, combining with her passion to create refreshingly honest songs that act as a brilliant showcase toward who Mychela is, it’s easy to see that she’s an artist who is only just getting started as her efforts continuously captivate the country music lover at each new turn! 
 

 

    What some industry folks say 

I have personally known Mychela for many years and have always been a fan of her musical talents as a singer/entertainer and also as simply a wonderful soul to be around and to perform with. Mychela has a beautiful rich unique voice and a bigger than life presence both on and off stage and she deserves to be heard on the world's stage. I wish her all the success on her journey with her music as I know she will do well - Julian Austin. Canadian Recording Artist

It is seldom that a voice makes you feel emotion, and that`s how Mychela sings. There are good singers who can hit the notes of the song, Mychela not only hits the note, she hits the feeling and emotion of the song. Having her in studio was a pure pleasure and can`t wait to hear more...I am sure you will feel the same too! - Jerry Neville. Country 93.3 Fort McMurray
