Diomande Elliott, aka LaChaleur, is a burgeoning music star from the Bronx, New York. LaChaleur is a talented artist and producer who quickly announced his name on the international music scene. The gifted singer brings a unique and fresh twist to the music scene with his fashion sense that mixes rock, upscale urban clothing and West African aesthetics. LaChaleur also has a versatile ear for music, evident in the way it smoothly merges all the different elements together, resulting in an awesome result.
During his few internships as a producer he created numerous records for various artists including Efya, Asap Ferg, Desiigner, 147 Cal boy, 27 Delly, Hassirv, Q Da Fool, Mac Sauce, and many more. Of Ivorian origin, LaChaleur shares a deep bond with African music. He has produced many African-inspired pieces, including a freestyle a year ago for a Nigerian award ceremony. LaChaleur has also worked with many world music stars from the African continent, including opening act for Grammy award-winning Sarkodie, P Square, Tekno and many more.
LaChaleur also flaunts and harnesses his diverse linguistic abilities to create collective music, which includes the mixing of different languages into a single song. However, French remains one of the main dialects he learned in Côte d’Ivoire. In fact, his stage name LaChaleur is French-inspired, which means “The Heat”. Most of his fans can attest to his love for the language as he likes to add French to his songs whenever he can.
Building a successful career in the music industry can be one of the most difficult tasks for an artist because it is such a demanding task. LaChaleur did not find the easy path, and he had to continually work hard, pushing the boundaries to make his musical dream come true. Consistency is one of the key factors for success in music, which has been a tough nut to crack for LaChaleur. He calls this a challenge that he still faces today to some extent.
“I might be consistent in some aspects, but I know sometimes that funds and even time can cause a shutdown, but I never completely let it go. I always find a way to be productive even if it’s not for me, ”explains LaChaleur.
On the right path to success in music, LaChaleur believes he has lived many life lessons that he can share to inspire others. For him, it’s not just about you; Sometimes you may come across situations where ideally you would like this highlighted on you, but it’s good to play behind the curtains. He thinks that sometimes you have to plant the seeds and see how they grow because the best things happen unexpectedly. So give your all while you can as long as you maneuver with some genuine purpose, and believe that God will bless you when the time is right.
Although he is very passionate about being a performer, LaChaleur doesn’t plan to be one for the rest of his life. He wants to diversify and take a different path within the music industry, such as eventually founding a record company. He wants to use his selfless spirit to help others move into positions and develop their goals.
