Acclaimed musician Chantel McGregor announces tour date in May as she debuts her new tracks
Singer-songwriter Chantel McGregor performs in Stamford on Saturday, May 5, at the town's much loved Mama Liz venue.
A female guitar prodigy, at the age of 14, Chantel was told by major labels that she had a "great voice, but girls don't play guitar like that!"
Wisely ignoring the comments, she enrolled at the Leeds College of Music and became the first student in the college’s history, to achieve a 100% pass mark, with 18 distinctions.
She left with a First Class Honours degree in popular music and a coveted prize, the college’s musician of the year award.
Her stunning live performances demonstrate today that she had the ability to perform rock for the new age, played by a musician born with an effortless virtuosity.
Since then, she has built a loyal and growing fan base who follow her every move.
One critic said of her 2011 debut album, 'Like No Other', “Chantel McGregor deserves to be held up as a messiah of blues-rock and given her own mountain."
Her follow up album, 'Like Control', was released in October 2015 to critical acclaim. She is currently writing her third album.
The gig at Mama Liz, North Street, is 7.30pm.
