PASCALE



She's talented, beautiful, and full of Soul.  This classically trained pianist turned hip-hop songstress is exciting the music world with her sultry vocals and electrifying sound. Pascale was born in Brooklyn, New York to West Indian parents. She started performing at the age of 5, following the footsteps of her mother, who was a flourishing singer and actress. Her childhood was also painted by the influence of several family members who were also musicians. "I had a very rich musical upbringing," says Pascale. "A lot of my love for music came directly from my family." It was at the legendary Carnegie Hall that Pascale pioneered her road to stardom.
Talent continued to surface from the rising star as she trained in Classical and Jazz music, and performed as a pianist in elementary and piano school. That's when those surrounding the budding talent started to see promise in her future in music. "When I was in junior high, my Eighth grade teacher would set aside 15 minutes of class time every week for me to perform for my class. Growing up, I had a lot of people around me that supported my dream. I was just one of those kids that always knew what they wanted to do."


Growing up, she listened to Bob Marley, Madonna, Michael Jackson, and Whitney Houston. Then at 12, Pascale fell in love with Hip-Hop, grasping the influences of artists like Slick Rick, A Tribe Called Quest, and MC Lyte. The 5 foot 3 beauty, with ethnicity ranging from American to Haitian to Cuban, cultivated her sound by surrounding herself with all kinds of music. "I grew up listening to mostly
Hip-Hop, Reggae, and R&B. Then when I went to high school, I started listening to a lot of Alternative music. Dave Matthews Band, Red Hot Chilli Peppers,
and Jimi Hendrix became some of my favorites.

 You can definitely hear the rock influence in my music." It was then that Pascale, the Artist, began to surface. She developed her talent by writing and performing constantly. At only 11, Pascale started writing rhymes, and by age 16, she was composing Classical and Jazz music. Her trademark became her originality, as she always performed her own songs. And for her powerful, folk sounding tone, Pascale's voice has been compared to the likes of Tracy Chapman, Norah Jones, and Nelly Furtado. 
Pascale has created a style of music that is all her own. She is Hip-Hop, Reggae, Soul, and everything in between. With her catchy hooks and outstanding vocals, this producer/singer/songwriter/musician is destined for superstardom.

If you don't know her by now, she's the Haitian girl from around the way. The girl next door who plays various instruments, and sings, writes, produces, and raps as well. Pascale, who is no newcomer to entertainment, has been performing since the age of 5. Having been influenced by a family of musicians, and a musically rich upbringing, Pascale maintains that her style embraces all sounds. "I just love music", says Pascale. "Playing it, listening to it, and creating it. Expression is what I live for."

"I grew up listening to Bob Marley, Madonna, The Jacksons, everybody. And I was raised in Hollis, [Queens], which was the hip-hop mecca at that time. So I've also been influenced by people like Salt N Pepa, Slick Rick, A Tribe Called Quest, and MC Lyte. Cats like that are who got me started in rap/hip-hop."

It was at age 11 when Pascale wrote her first rhyme. Now, more than 10 years later, homegirl "Caly" (a nickname her rhyming friend gave to her in college), is still doing her thang. Looking nothing like your typical "rap star", Pascale is quick to put anyone who states that in their place. "Everyone I meet tells me that they would never think that I rap. That shit is funny to me. If only they knew how much I love this, and for how long I've been doing it."

But Pascale is more than just a rapper. She is also a musician, producer, songwriter, and an accomplished pianist. Playing piano now for over 17 years, Pascale has performed at major concert halls like Carnegie Hall, to block parties and talent shows, and college arenas. "I used to rhyme on the corner, then go home and practice Bach for piano school! (Laugh) I'm just different, that's all. And ain't nothing wrong with that."
