Good Luck Songs is wonderful new collection of powerful and poignant songs from Bristol-based singer-songwriter Daisy Chapman…
Daisy’s powerful vocals have been used by the likes of John Parish, for his film work, as well as a handful of TV session work. Her piano style and versatility was noticed by UK prog rockers Crippled Black Phoenix (Mascot Records), and since 2009 on and off Daisy has travelled as pianist/BV with the band on tours covering every corner of Europe as well as a short trip to China. Daisy was also chosen as vocalist on their cover of AC/DC’s ‘Let Me Put My Love Into You’ which was used in Classic Rock Magazine’s cover CD – a stark departure from her wistful singing style, proving her adaptability in musical genres.
Daisy has supported well known artists such as Howe Gelb, Karima Francis and Jenn Bostic as well as booked her own tours in the US and Poland, not to mention label tours across Germany, twice a year since 2008. Three studio albums followed suit, one of which (The Green Eyed, 2009) won an Independent Music Award which then secured her slots at Britain’s leading festivals Glastonbury, Wychwood and 2000 Trees.
Good Luck Songs is Daisy Chapman’s third full-length studio album and her second to be released in the UK on Folkwit Records. BBC Radio Scotland’s Iain Anderson on making her last album his Album Of The Week described Chapman as:
“a songwriter who has the gift of writing perceptive songs and setting them to sumptuous arrangements.”
Dai Jeffries from folking.com suggested that:
“to provide a comparison by which to judge Daisy I want to say Sandy Denny – she’s there in the piano, the songwriting style and the voice.”
High praise indeed and one of many plaudits earned by her second album Shameless Winter.
