Chantel McGregor With Blue Nation @ The 1865, Southampton
In previous years, Chantel stepped out in the pro-musician world and her stunning live performances demonstrated that she had the ability to perform rock for the new age, played by a musician born with an effortless virtuosity. Since then, she has built a loyal and growing fan base who follow her every move.
If you measure an artist’s prospects by the company they keep, then Chantel has been moving in the right direction. Early in her career, Chantel was invited to perform with Joe Bonamassa, on two of his UK tours.
Over the last few years, Chantel has received great reviews of her 5 albums, the last 2 being released during the 2021 Covid lockdown. The ‘Shed Sessions Volumes 1 & 2’ were recorded at home and mixed by Wayne Proctor of Superfly Studios due to the pandemic. They were born out of a weekly livestream which Chantel performed throughout lockdown.
Over lockdown, as well as the 2 albums, Chantel released a rock cover of ‘Stupid Love’ by Lady Gaga and had a track on ‘Gumbo Blues, a tribute to Dr John’, both through Cleopatra Records in the USA. She also released the single ‘I Will See’, which she co-wrote and recorded with David ‘Nova’ Nowakowski (Scars on 45).
Chantel is writing for her next studio album, and is debuting some of the new tracks on her tour which, is taking place throughout the UK. These are one off shows not to be missed.
Chantel stated, ‘I’m over the moon to be back out on tour again, the last couple of years have been incredibly tough for everyone in the music industry and it’s just so wonderful to be able to play live music in front of great crowds once again’.
