Daisy Chute is a folk songstress, multi-instrumentalist and regular on the London music scene.
While her musical roots were born out of her Scottish/American heritage, Daisy has had forays and extensive training in both the jazz and classical genres. Her first album was a critically-acclaimed jazz record released at just age 15. Following encouragement from music legends like Mark Murphy and Sir Barry Gibb, she was enlisted shortly after to be a lead singer in Decca’s platinum-selling, brit-nominated classical group All Angels with whom she released 3 albums.
Fast forward to 2020, and you’ll find Daisy returned to her folk/americana roots and spending most of her time songwriting, selling out venues and festivals and recording for her own projects and countless soundtracks for films, TV shows and games and for bands like Radiohead and Two Door Cinema Club. She is also the co-founder of HEARD Collective - an artist collective who promote and support women in music, and the co-writer of COVEN - a gig theatre show about witches set to tour in 2020.
Represented by Talentbanq Agency and an award-winning artist, Daisy came first in the Coffee Music Project singer-songwriter competition with her song ‘London’s on Fire’ and her 5 most recent singles are being played in over 600 stores worldwide as Caffè Nero Artist of the Month.
Daisy has been busy performing both in the UK and abroad with tours to America (Nashville, New York, LA) and festival appearances including Glastonbury, Cornbury, Love Supreme, Black Deer and Summertyne and even had a debut in the Danny Boyle & Richard Curtis feature film 'Yesterday' as an onstage ukulele player at Wembley and vocalist on the soundtrack. As an accomplished multi-instrumentalist, Daisy performs either solo with guitar, banjo, ukulele and piano or with bandmates on double bass, pedal steel, drums, cello, fiddle and harp.
One of Paul Sexton's 'top music tips', Daisy's music has been compared to Simon and Garfunkel and Joni Mitchell by BBC Radio Kent, likened to Cat Power by her mentor Sir Ray Davies and given the thumbs up by Sir Paul McCartney after a performance at the Royal Albert Hall.
