Don’t be misled by the neat pin-stripe suit, the fedora and the tap-dance shoes: Chantz, born and raised in New Orleans, really ís only 17 years old. He sings, tap-dances and plays the trumpet, as if he has never done anything else in his life. At an early age, he already begged his mother for a trumpet. His big idol was Louis Armstrong and soon he started to entertain people in the streets with his act. With the money that he had earned, his mother paid Chantz’ trumpet and vocal lessons. Once he saw the tap-dancers in the streets of New Orleans, he wanted to equal that as well. Nowadays, when he’s not taking classes at Trinity Music College, the multi-talented Chantz performs all over the world. On his debut album Stories of Me, he sings various swinging songs from the American Songbook. The story of this boy is so extraordinary, they even made a documentary about him called: My Louis Armstrong Years.
