Meet Cheyenne Wright

Today we’d like to introduce you to Cheyenne Wright.

So, before we jump into specific questions, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
I come from a musical background, my mother being a singer & father being a professional musician (specializing in guitar). My parents are 17 years apart, so I was introduced to a wide spectrum of music at a very young age. I grew up in West LA and moved to South LA when I was 16. I’ve been singing since I can remember and I’ve been performing as a vocalist since I was 12. I didn’t start taking myself seriously as an artist until about three years ago. Singing has always been a part of my life but growing up, I always fought the internal battle of “is singing just something I CAN do or is it something I’m MEANT to do?” I grew up writing poetry but didn’t do much songwriting until very recently. The more music I write, the more I discover about myself as a person and an artist. I realized I have something valuable to express & it needs to be shared. After much trial and error, I now understand it’s what I was put on this earth to do.

Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
This definitely has NOT been a smooth road but I don’t believe anything worth having comes easy, so I never expected it to be. I had plenty of obstacles to overcome, most of which were internal. I was on a really destructive path and in order to change that, I had to face some real flaws within myself. Change is never easy, growing pains are real and I’ve been in some pretty dark places but I trust God and know that he has a plan for me. So I do my absolute best to be the best version of myself I can be and let God do the rest.

We’d love to hear more about your work and what you are currently focused on. What else should we know?
I’m an independent artist from Los Angeles. I ‘m mostly known for my lead singing, but I also sing background vocals for artists as well as commercial jingles. The more I get to know myself, the more I discover what I’m capable of. As of late, I’ve been producing & co-directing my own visual content, as well as executive producing my music. I’m most proud of my growth as a person and an artist. I would say what sets me apart from others is that I’m always looking to learn and grow. I know I’m great at what I do but I recognize there’s always room to get better.

Do you look back particularly fondly on any memories from childhood?
My favorite childhood memory would have to be performing on Showtime At The Apollo. My family was so proud and the look on my parent’s faces when I performed was literally priceless. The entire process leading up to the actual taping is a big part of why this is my favorite childhood memory. This was when my parents, as well as myself, discovered performing was something I was actually capable of. It’s one thing to sing but it’s when we discovered I had stage presence. It was such a fun time & it really is a staple in my family’s list of favorite memories.
