Chantel McGregor – new video and tour dates

Chantel McGregor - Lose ControlGuitarist and singer-songwriter Chantel McGregor will release her new album, Lose Control, on Friday 9th October 2015 on her independent boutique label Tis Rock Music – her first studio album since her critically acclaimed 2011 debut, Like No Other. The first single, “Take The Power”, is released on Monday September 28th, and is accompanied by a promo video filmed on location in Edinburgh, produced by Sine Wave Media and directed by Richard Weston. Scroll down to enjoy it!

Chantel returns with a vengeance with ten new songs that not only salutes contemporary rock, but shows her gradual transition from conventional Blues to a harder, bigger and bolder rock sound with progressive influences. The album was recorded, mixed and mastered at Livingstone Brown’s studio in Brixton. Livingstone Brown, (Ed Sheeran, Bryan Ferry, Robin Trower), played the majority of the bass on the album, with Chantel playing small parts, with Keith McPartling on drums.

“I’m keen on Southern Gothic literature, artwork and media,” says Chantel. “I wanted to create an album that reflected the imagery and themes of that genre. I drew inspiration from the TV shows True Detective and True Blood and studied the literary works of Tennessee Williams, Carson McMullers and Mark Twain. “I also surrounded myself with imagery from artists and photographers such as Walker Evans and Clarence John Laughlin, all to immerse myself in the sinister, dark world of depravation, magic and voodoo, writing most of the songs from the perspective of the disturbed flawed characters.”
