Singer, Songwriter, Multi-Instrumentalist (Guitar, Banjo, Uke, Piano). Performs originals + covers. Folk/Americana. Classical + Jazz trained

Edinburgh-born, half-American, hyphen-loving Daisy Chute is a folk songstress and multi-instrumentalist playing guitar, banjo, ukulele and piano. Formerly of Decca’s platinum-selling classical-Brit nominated vocal group All Angels, she is excited to be working on her début album of original folk songs with producer and songwriter Tim Baxter (Andy Burrows, Editors, Nick Mulvey, Jasmine Thompson). Classically and Jazz-trained Daisy can provide a variety of different genres for performances and with lineups ranging from solo vocal with guitar/piano to full jazz quintet, to folk band featuring celtic fiddle, harp and banjo to classical ensemble with vocal harmonies, strings and piano. Daisy is co-founder of the all-female artists collective HEARD Collective, which supports and promotes women in the arts. The HEARD consists of over a dozen multi-instrumentalists who can perform in different lineups depending on the event and gig - from the 2 founders playing harp, guitar, banjo and piano and singing in harmony, to the full ensemble with full strings, percussion, guitars, harmonies and more! They’ve just recorded their first single together at Abbey Road Studios - an arrangement of Tracy Chapman’s ‘Talkin’ ‘Bout a Revolution’. Daisy aims to offer bespoke sets and lineups for her clients and is happy to take requests upon booking. Represented by Talentbanq Agency, Daisy is a regular in the London music scene and has performed everywhere from Green Note to The O2 to the Shard. She also loves traveling with music and has performed regionally across the UK and internationally in the US, Europe, Middle East, China and Russia, performing in over 7 different languages singing both solo and with full orchestra. She is an award-winning singer and songwriter having just been awarded first place in the Coffee Music Project singer-songwriter competition. Daisy has been mentored by rock royalty Sir Ray Davies, featured as a vocalist on Radiohead's latest album A Moon Shaped Pool, and even got the thumbs up from Sir Paul McCartney after a performance at the Royal Albert Hall. Daisy has performed for high-end events for companies such as Porsche, Burberry, Audi, Gucci and for TV, Film and Game soundtracks, as well as providing musical entertainment for private parties and weddings. One of Paul Sexton's 'top music tips' for 2018, Daisy's original music has been compared to Laura Marling, Simon and Garfunkel and Joni Mitchell (BBC Radio Kent) and her voice has been described as “Exquisitely delicious. Delicate, like a gossamer-winged creature made out of spun gold." Tony Moore (Soho Radio, The Bedford)

We booked Daisy Chute and the Heard Collective for a private gig. What can I say? Well, they surpassed all expectations and gave us a fabulous evening of music and laughter! These artists are all talented multi-instrumentalists, each with their own individual style and strengths. Daisy and Cerian exude a natural charm and warmth which quickly won over the audience, creating a great atmosphere for everyone. Meg Ella and Jessie Reid added their exquisite instrumental skills and evocative vocals to the mix. We had such a great evening and each artist gained many new fans. We'd book them again without hesitation.

Exquisitely delicious. Delicate, like a gossamer-winged creature made out of spun gold.
