Chantal Acda

New Signing

Delighted to welcome Chantal Acda and her catalogue to our roster.

Currently based in Belgium, Dutch-born Chantal Acda (1978) has worked under the Sleepingdog moniker since 2006, making three acclaimed albums. Playing in various formations (Isbells, True Bypass, Marble Sounds) had made her conscious of the patterns that we all, as humans, share in. So, she sought out kindred spirits with whom she might record her solo debut album filled with freedom and intensity, and who were conscious of the patterns we so often fall back on. She collaborated with Nils Frahm, Peter Broderick, Gyda Valtysdottir and Shahzad Ismaily.

After this first record, 3 other solorecords followed while working on numerous projects. During the lockdown Chantal started a project with Italian composer and pianist Bruno Bavota. Chantal is also a member of the band Distance, Light & Sky (together with Chris Eckman- The Walkabouts/USA and Eric Thielemans) and Isbells.
