(Jessica Chaz)

Durban born pop singer Jessica Chaz has released her new single Answer which was recorded in studios in Durban and Vancouver, Canada.

Chaz’s passion for music started out by singing harmonies and bass lines to TV ads as a child. Throughout her early school years, she tried out different instruments always interested in the groove and beat behind the music. She faced a few curved balls which brought her to the moment when she realized that music was part of her destiny. She began to feel an increasing resolve that she was born to be a musician, an artist who was meant to touch people’s lives through her music.

In "Answer," Chaz delivers a heartwarming story of searching. The song describes a feeling of despair that so many feel when dreams are on the line, when there is no visible answer in sight, and no physical help to achieve them. It's a story of believing in oneself, the journey of finding the strength to believe regardless of circumstances. Chaz co-produced the track with award-winning singer-songwriter Vanessa Moodley, who also sang backing vocals. Greg Bedford was the mixing engineer. The track was recorded at The Audio Suite in Durban, South Africa and Demitone Studios in Vancouver, Canada.

Answer is now available on Chaz’s website ( and on Apple Music, iTunes, Spotify, Amazon, Google Play, Shazam, Beatport, Tidal, Pandora and Deezer.

Moodlab Music, the label behind Answer and Chaz’s upcoming releases, is a groundbreaking new venture. Moodley and Chaz founded the independent label in order to provide more opportunities to female artists. The Dreamin" EP will be the flagship project for Moodlab.

"Dreamin’ is about dreams that we all have for our lives; this EP is the story of my journey to find a way to live out my dream; dreaming kept hope alive through every curve ball that came my way: hurdles and obstacles I had to face became stepping stones when I paused to dream again ..." says Chaz.

Dreamin’ will be released on May 4, 2018.
