Exclusive: An Interview With Country/Pop Artist Chyenne May

By: Kat Harlton

At just 12-years-old, Vancouver, BC, singer-songwriter Chyenne May wrote her first single “Forever and Ever”, a huge accomplishment for May who had never written a song before. “When I wrote it, I had so many thoughts and emotions going into it, and it was my first time writing a song, so I honestly didn’t know where to start. So many memories came to me, and I feel people my age can relate to it because it can be interpreted in so many different ways. I wrote it for me, feeling lost and stuck in a certain situation where you need answers for your questions and knowing that overall as long as you have hope, it’ll be ok.”

Wise beyond her years, the 13-year-old cites some of the music industry’s biggest names and crossover acts as inspiration, “I love Carrie Underwood, Taylor Swift, Beyonce. I’m so young right now that I don’t want to commit to a sound. I do love country music, and I do love pop music as well and I think they blend nice together. I want to be able to have songs that are more country or more pop and it not be a complete shock.”

At 10-years-old, Chyenne, stunned the music scene when she made her first entrance winning “Most Promising Performer” at the BC Youth Talent Search. Listening to her talk about her music, it’s clear she’s a beautiful and inspired young lady, “It’s my passion, so as much as it’s been hard work I definitely want to do it. I would give the advice of shooting for the stars and to dream big because no dream is too big and the only person that can tell you your limit, is yourself.”

Chyenne recently donated her hair to the BC Children Hospital’s Wigs For Kids foundation, an organization that makes wigs for children battling cancer. “I had pretty long hair at the beginning of last year and it was at the length where if I got it cut I could donate eight inches of it. We’re hopefully going to plan a charity concert for the future.”
