Live Music Session #118 – Daisy Chapman

It was a welcome return for Daisy and violinist Sue to the Tuppenny stage, for what ended up being 2 sets of exquisite music due to the late cancellation by planned support Harmony Asia

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.
