Schascle I was going through the S at the record shop when I saw Schascle album Haunted By Real Life. I never heard of her or her music, but was intrigued by the CD cover picture. Schascle (chess-el) has got a powerful voice and you can find some great songs on her album. I tried to compare her with other artists but couldn't find one that sounds like her. You can find some real-audio soundclips on this page if you are interested.

Schascle "Twinkle" Yochim was born and raised in Sarasota, Florida. At the age of seven, while she was singing along to rock and rols hits, she decided she wanted to go further in music. She played cello in her grammer school orchestra and later she went to the Booker Visual And Perfoming Arts High School. In the tenth grade Schascle fronted her first band with influences ranging from The Allman Brothers and Bad Company to Marvin Gaye and Bob Marley. By the age of sixteen Schasle was playing professionally in the Sarasota music scene, attending school during the day and lying about her age at night in order to sing in local clubs.

After graduation, Schascle fronted a rock band singing Top 40 hits in hotel lounges across the country. During this time she learned her stage skills and grew the desire to sing her own material. A year later she returned home to Sarasota to join The Hurricanes, a blues group with a strong local following. She had a lot of artistic freedom and the band encouraged her to continue writing her own stuff.

This led to the recording of a four-track demo tape in 1988. Her second demo tape with eight new songs recorded in a Chicago studio got interest from various music publishers. After signing with Warner-Chapell as a songwriter, producer Patrick Leonard heard her material and offered to produce an album. She signed with Reprise Records and this resulted in Schascle's first album Haunted By Real Life (1991).

It took seven years before Schascle's next album came out. Live @t the 5 O' (1998) was recorded live at the "Five O'Clock Club", a local club in Sarasota.

I recently received some news about what Twinkle has been up to lately. There is a new album out but I'm not sure about the title. And on the moment (January 2001) she is in Europe to try to get some gigs overhere. I have got some pictures from her "going to Europe party"
