SummerTyne 2017: An interview with Chloe Chadwick
Review and interview carried out by Peter Mann BSc
In the second interview by Peter Mann BSc, he caught up with Northern Country Queen Chloe Chadwick, this is what she had to say about SumerTyne 2017
Already labelled as being the Northern Country Queen, Newcastle-based singer-songwriter Chloe Chadwick wowed the Concourse at this year’s SummerTyne Americana Festival as she appeared, alongside fellow musicians Mark Bushell (guitar) and Chris Groom (keys) for the fifth time, and third at the festival.
Recently releasing her debut album, Dustbowl Jukebox (peaking at 14 in the album charts), Chloe is aiming for a big finish to 2017 and, with some quality gigs to look forward to including the Whitby Country Festival (September 9), Nashville Live By The Sea (September 15) and at The Cluny supporting Jess Morgan and Dan Whitehouse (October 12) among others.
Speaking after her third SummerTyne appearance Chloe said: Playing the Sage is a dream come true. It’s an iconic venue with some of the best indoor acoustics around and I’m proud to have this big beauty in my hometown
The SummerTyne Americana is every country musicians dream to play and there’s a stage for all tastes
It’s great that this festival considers not just world class artists but emerging artists trying to break through!
In performing signature tracks like Feels Like Home and the latest release, Love Will Find A Way, both number one hits in the British & Irish Hot Disc Top 40.
Significantly important to her musical career, the launch of her debut album, the ten-track offering is spearheaded by the latter single, premiered by Maverick Magazine and played on Ubeat Emerging on Made TV.
It’s an album that has something for everyone; undertones of pop, rock, country, blues and soul embedded throughout the artist believes she’s struck the perfect chord with this, adding: My favourites are Big River and Plain Old Jane with the former being that classy ballad which relates to previous experiences whilst living life to the full
Recorded over in Los Angeles it came out exactly how I envisioned it, it really couldn’t have been any better
Sage Gateshead though, like many before her and certainly many after, has captured, and holds, special place in Chloe’s heart. Having performed in Sage Two recently in support of Rob Heron and The Teapad Orchestra, she’s certainly chomping at the bit for more at this iconic venue.
Playing the Sage has been one of the highlights of this year for me and of my career
Who doesn’t want to play this awesome venue? I’m extremely lucky to have been given the opportunities I have, and hope they still come my way now and again.
