Chesca Mac, originally from New Jersey, has always been surrounded by music. First, it was what her parents listened to: Journey, Whitney Houston. Then, she found her own sound influenced by artists such as John Mayer, Alicia Keys, and John Legend. Beginning to write her own music around 10 or 11, Chesca found a home on YouTube and, eventually, in her local music scene. Now, as a junior at Fordham College at Lincoln Center, she has taken advantage of many musical opportunities, including performing at 2019 WinterFest and signing with Fordham’s first record label, Ramses Records.

“The Desk at 140 West” is an NPR “Tiny Desk”-influenced music series created by the Fordham Observer Multimedia team.
