Chess Galea was originally exposed to classical music, day in day out, as the piano was constantly being played at her childhood home, where she also began to learn to play the piano. A young Chess then looked through her mother's CD collection, to find a 'Queen' album, which sparked her true ambition - singing and performing. Dancing since she was 2, Chess really knows how to own a stage and her live performances are not to be missed. She has performed at Silvana New York, The Emirates Palace Abu Dhabi, and The Roundhouse London, to name a few..
Chess is also a songwriter and regularly pens songs for artists all over the world, as well as writing her own songs. Her song 'Rise' independently reached number 40 in the iTunes Charts last year, and she has been a semi-finalist in the UK songwriting contest, twice. Chess is now learning to play the bass guitar, her favourite instrument, to add something extra to her live show.
Her influences include Prince, Freddy Mercury, Whitney Houston and Alicia Keys.
In 2018 Chess appeared on the BBC One Prime Time Show 'All Together Now' and has been supported by BBC Introducing.
