Live Music Session #91 – Daisy Chapman + Jules Hill

Hailing from Bristol, Daisy Chapman is an extremely experienced and well-travelled pianist, singer and songwriter. Since 2004 Daisy has recorded 5 studio albums/EPs and released 1 live album, all penned and arranged by her. The music comprises of string quartets, percussion and choirs, not to mention her outstanding vocal range and ‘Nymanesque’ piano. The songs tell dark stories of love, lust and loss as well as peculiar tales from history.

Live, Daisy teams ups with violinist Sue Lord for extensive tours across Europe. The orchestral timbre of the album tracks are replaced with solo violin, and stunningly accurate looped vocals – goosebumps every time. Outside of her solo work, Daisy can also be spotted on stage with prog outfit Venus Principle as vocalist and pianist, and was also a long standing member of prog rocker collective Crippled Black Phoenix from 2009 – 2015.

Support artist Jules is a familiar face around the place, but has been out of the music scene for a while. But now is the time for a return and she brings an all new solo acoustic project to us with influences from indie, alternative and blues/soul. Maybe a bit Joni Mitchell-esque? We shall see!
