Chevaughn is adding finishing touches to his debut album From Scratch. According to him, the Notis Production project will have 11 to 13 tracks and is set for release next year.

Chevaughn said the set sees him taking a new approach.

“I'm just getting back to a place of focusing on Chevaughn. I was always a part of a group; I was in the Further Notice Band which later formed Notis Productions, the same people who produced Holiday featuring Ding Dong. So From Scratch is just me getting back to my purpose and passion which is what makes me sing and write. I'm working with a lot of like-minded people on this project who understand this sentiment as well,” he told the Jamaica Observer.

The singer, who says he does not want to be linked to any particular one genre, has released several songs since winning the Tastee Talent Contest in 1997. His big break, however, came with the hit single Holiday, which also features Ding Dong.

“I don't feel bad that people remember me for Holiday; it was and still is a big song. The journey is the journey — I'll never be bothered by it as it is part of the journey. I've done a lot since I've been in music and I still have more to come,” said Chevaughn.

Having experienced what he describes as a 'powerful and magical year', Chevaughn is currently gearing up for his performance on Rebel Salute in January.

“I am grateful to be part of the show again next year. My fans can expect so much more. I used to sing background vocals on the show with C-Sharp and it is a monumental thing for me to be able to go on the stage and say 'I'm Chevaughn' and sing my music. People are going to see a more theatrical side of me because I have that experience having been a part of Ashe and Father Ho Lung and Friends productions. I believe in the importance of putting on a show with visuals and audio and allowing all elements of the arts to be expressed. I am an artiste, you will not be able to predict this performance,” Chevaughn said.

Rebel Salute is set for January 16 and 17 at Grizzly's Plantation Cove in St Ann.
