Chantel McGregor is
one of the most exciting guitarists in the UK!
At the age of eight Chantel became the youngest person
in the country to pass a Rock school exam and at 12, she
was jamming in her native Bradford and evolving into an
Described as a prodigy, at 14 Chantel was told by major
labels "great voice, but girls don't play guitar like
that!" Wisely ignoring that advice, she enrolled at the
world-renowned Leeds College of Music and became the
first student in the college’s history, to achieve a
100% pass mark, with 18 distinctions. Chantel left with
a First Class Honours degree in Popular Music and a
coveted prize, for outstanding musicianship.
Chantel's debut album, Like No Other, was produced by
Livingstone Brown, who has worked with such artists as
Tina Turner, Bryan Ferry, Robin Trower, ABC and Bill
Withers and the end result, is a beautifully crafted
compilation, that showcases her versatility and genuine
talent, as a singer-songwriter!
Jamming on stage with Joe Bonamassa on two of his tours
so far, Chantel is a formidable guitar player, a very
talented singer-songwriter and her live performances are
A recent quote in Nightshift, Oxford's music magazine,
reinforces this, "Chantel McGregor deserves to be held
up as a messiah of blues-rock and given her own
mountain, she doesn't strum or pick her guitar but
almost bends and distorts it, as if she's channelling
the ghost of Hendrix through her fingers"
In 2013, Chantel was voted Guitarist of the Year and
Female Vocalist of the Year. Winning four awards in the
last three years in competition with highly regarded
peers, is something to be extremely proud of in itself,
but what a refreshing change and a justifiable first in
the history of the British Blues Awards, that a female
artist was voted Guitarist of the Year!!
In the Get Ready To Rock review of The Great British
Rock & Blues Festival at in January 2014, Pete Feenstra
stated that "Chantel McGregor arguably drew the biggest
crowd of the festival, just as the air conditioning gave
out. Her mix of shredding, tapping, blues, covers and
ballads mesmerised the crowd".
When explosive natural ability
collides with fiery, emotionally charged compositions,
the result is Aynsley Lister; an incredible guitarist
whose brand of blues-based rock delivers contemporary
song writing fuelled with the kind of heart and soul
that’s missing from so much modern music. Whether
passionately writing and recording his own material or
mesmerising audiences at his live shows, one thing is
abundantly clear: music is hard-wired to his DNA and
flows from his fingertips like sonic bolts of lightning.
With over 100,000 albums sold, lashings of critical
acclaim and years of high profile touring, Lister’s
resumé speaks for itself and firmly secures his position
as a leading light in the resurgence of British
blues-infused music. Aynsley’s latest release, Home, is
out now on Straight Talkin’ Records.
Larry Miller is undeniably one
of the must see blues/rock guitarists, bringing his
unique showmanship to every performance. He is famous
for his mesmerising guitar playing and high octane
shows, wowing audiences in the UK and Europe. Larry will
be showcasing his new album ‘Soldier Of the Line’, which
is receiving much critical acclaim. From power blues of
‘One Fine Day’ and stomping rockers like ‘Mississippi
Mama’ to the beautiful love song ‘Bathsheba’.
One of the hardest working
musicians on the live music scene, he was a regular
headliner at The Marquee in London and produced a
barnstorming set at the Reading Festival. He is now more
popular than ever and holds the record for the most
encores at The Cambridge Rock Festival. Reviewing the
festival the Get Ready To Rock journalist said “Crowd
reaction to his performance was ecstatic ...Joe
Bonamassa watch out, there's another new blues hero
snapping at your heels”.
In ‘Classic Rock Presents The
Blues’ magazine readers poll, Larry Miller was voted
number 3 only to be beaten by Joe Bonamassa and Walter
Trout, plus a 5 page article proclaimed Larry Miller was
“Keeper of the British Blues Rock flame”.
“Larry Miller explodes on stage
and hits you right between the eyes. Polished,
professional and highly entertaining, he serves up
faultless playing as well as a lively, fun, hard-hitting
show. He is one of the biggest crowd pleasers on the
live circuit today and one of the nice guys. His
engaging personality brings a dimension of showmanship
to his performances like no other. This powerhouse
blues/rocker is filling the niche left behind by Gary
Moore and Rory Gallagher. The man has flair, memorable
riffs, serious soloing as well as being a great blues
vocalist and a consummate showman.”
“Full of intense passion, power,
exciting guitar playing with both rockers and ballads.
"Elegantly crafted compositions provide sturdy
foundations for that deep, expressive soloing style of
his and we, for one, are sold. Blues-rock brilliance."
Guitar & Bass magazine.

and SRV in the ring together and you'd be close….. “
