Patrice Cherele Swygert best known as Cherele is the Aquarian born 90’s baby from Fort Myers, Florida who grew an appreciation for music at a young age. Her mother noticed and placed her in piano lessons by the age of 3. Despite her diverse taste, Hip Hop called to her at the tender age of 7 and by 9 she was already creating music of her own. A small town couldn’t hold her big dreams so she relocated to Miami in 2013 where she collaborated with producer LeMieuX for her first LP titled Paradise Lost. The project debuted in April 2015 through FACT Mag in the UK and received rave reviews from major publications such as HotNewHipHop, Ashley Outrageous, and Respect Magazine. Cherele was even named one of Florida’s 5 Favorite Rising Stars by Pigeons and Planes as well as Green Labels Top 8 South Florida Artists Who Are Next To Blow. Not to mention she was nominated for 5 Mieux Magazine awards including Best Debut Project, Best Single, Best South Florida Artist, Best Female Artist, Video Of The Year in 2015, and Video Of The Year in 2018.
Cherele had the opportunity to tour alongside Awful Record’s Lord Narf and Goth Money's Black Kray where she had her first taste of life on the road. In 2016, her single “vi$ions” was featured on HBO’s hit show Insecure Season 1 and this is only the early stages of the star that is to emerge. This small town bred, big city spitter is transcending genres with her new direction. With inspirations such as Lil Wayne, M.I.A., Kanye West, and with producer LeMieuX in her creative corner, you can only imagine the sounds you will hear with her next project. The suspected EP features a new experimental fusion of various styles with a rhythmic kick to keep you moving. Cherele’s new playfully infectious sound sets the tone for the colorful visual representation that is Cherele. As she works on new music and prepares to premier her new project, there’s no telling how far Cherele will go, but you can be sure that there’s nothing slowing her down.
