Troubadour Boy - Daisy Chute
With some very exciting solo and future band projects currently in progress our next LCM featured artist is the multi-award winning London based independent singer-songwriter Daisy Chute. Edinburgh-born, half-American, hyphen-loving Daisy is a multi-instrumentalist with a particular penchant for the banjo. Formerly of Decca’s platinum-selling classical group 'All Angels', she is currently working on her début album of original songs with producer and songwriter Tim Baxter (Andy Burrows, Editors, Nick Mulvey, Jasmine Thompson). With a super pure vocal the very talented, popular and highly skilled Daisy is in great demand.
Our LCM #SongOfTheDay is Daisy's latest single and one of our favourites from her live set, the wonderful 'Troubadour Boy. The great new video is released today with the new single released last Friday and available to purchase. Daisy is one of our LCM 'Ones To Watch' in 2018 together with her new band HEARD.
Daisy is a regular in the London music scene and an award-winning singer and songwriter having just been awarded first place in the Coffee Music Project singer-songwriter competition, Daisy has been taught and mentored by rock royalty Sir Ray Davies, featured as a vocalist on Radiohead's latest album 'A Moon Shaped Pool', and even got the thumbs up from Sir Paul McCartney after a performance at the Royal Albert Hall. One of Paul Sexton's 'top music tips' for 2018, Daisy's music has been compared to Simon and Garfunkel and Joni Mitchell (BBC Radio Kent) and her voice has been described as “Exquisitely delicious. Delicate, like a gossamer-winged creature made out of spun gold." Tony Moore (Soho Radio, The Bedford)
With special thanks to Daisy's musical partner-in-crime Tim Baxter and videographer-extraordinaire Bartek Podkowa.
