C-Quel was born May 27,in New Brunswick, NJ. This recording artist /songwriter of African-American, West Indian, Native American and Irish descent grew up in Old Bridge, NJ. His strong musical background derives from his mother, who loved to sing and dance; as well as his father, who played at various New York City venues as a polished guitarist and keyboardist in a band. C-Quel began singing at his Baptist Church at the age of 4 years old. By 9, he played the alto saxophone in the school band, and continued for the next 4 years. 90’s Hip Hop and R&B heavily influenced his life--Tupac Shakur , LL Cool J and Busta Rhymes particularly contributed to his desire to pursue a music career. “The Red Carpet Affair” explains the impact that the "Mighty Siek" will have on the music industry. He sees a particular lack of creativity, and knows that he can fill that void where others have not. C-Quel tested the boundaries of his songwriting skills and delivered a unique sound on this challenging project. The Mighty Siek believes re-imaging his brand is the only way to challenge his creativity. “The Red Carpet Affair” has a “Mainstream” sound, and a “Hip Hop” influence.
