Enchanting, who was raised in Fort Worth, Texas, signed to 1017 Records in 2020. Although she confirmed she was a “free agent” via a video posted via TikTok in October, 2023, her bio remains on 1017 Records’ website, and details how Enchanting’s stage name was a result of “the way her voice swirls around the beat … a perfect descriptor of her ethereal vocals.”

Enchanting began pursuing music at the age of 18 and released a studio mixtape after her high school graduation. Her self-defined style was “something chill with a dash of neo-Soul, a twinge of old school R&B, with some modern trap flavor sprinkled in.”

Enchanting is quoted within the website’s bio. She said, “Staying in the studio and constantly recording, it helps me find the style I can be good at … Other people can relate to the things I say. I might help somebody through any situation, they can listen to me and find peace.”
