‘Absolutely superb. Captivating… The atmospheric London’s on Fire richly deserves the widest possible audience.’
Paul Sexton (Billboard, BBC Radio 2, Sunday Times)
Daisy Chute is an American-Scottish folk singer and songwriter. A banjo-wielding multi-instrumentalist, her musical roots are born out of her transatlantic heritage and she writes award-winning intelligent songs with stories, performing them with spine-tingling vocals & intricate instrumentation. Recent projects have garnered support from her songwriting mentor Sir Ray Davies who describes her as a ‘committed, professional and creative songwriter’ and music journalist Paul Sexton who counts her among his ‘top music tips’.
A mix of Celtic, American, Classical and Jazz backgrounds has seen Daisy feature across Film/TV/Game soundtracks ranging from The Sims 4, Tomb Raider, Shaun The Sheep the movie, 47 Ronin and Yesterday to David Attenborough documentaries (A Perfect Planet) and Radiohead albums (session vocalist on A Moon Shaped Pool).
Her original work in the Folk and Americana genre has had features on BBC Radio London/Kent/Coventry, C4, BBC 1, 2 and 3, Sky, ITV, CNN, Bob Harris’ Under The Apple Tree series and London Live.
As a dual national, Daisy performs both in the UK and US with recent tours to America (Nashville, New York, LA, Chicago) and festival appearances including Glastonbury Green Futures, Cornbury, Love Supreme, Black Deer, Edinburgh International Fringe and Summertyne.
Since March 2020 Daisy’s live stream concerts have been featured on Cambridge Folk Festival at Home, Glastonbury Experience, Virtually Green Note, Global Coffee Festival, Global Music Match, AmericanaFest UK’s Staying Connected and the upcoming Folk Alliance’s Folk Unlocked.
