Chloe Jones | Damsel

A review of Chloe Jones new release Damsel

Written by Marina Blore

Review

 Chloe Jones’ single ‘Damsel’ is a step away from the folk/Americana genre that she declares as her norm, to take her down a much more traditional country sound. Chloe spent some time in 2019 as part of a three person team leading a music camp for teenagers in Maine, USA.

 This track takes her to Guatemala and tells the story of life on the road for an independent woman, feeling lonely and missing the support of her lover.

 With a voice that is way beyond her years, and a natural “country’ break in her vocals , you would be forgiven for assuming that her hometown may be more Maine in Northeast USA than Manchester in Northwest England.

 Once again, British country talent is making a mark and Chloe Jones’ lyrics for Damsel flow easily with couplets that cross the music, resulting in a catchy chorus. As well as a singer-songwriter who performs regularly at Manchester’s Oast House, Chloe is a vocal coach working largely in performance technique. This latter skill will serve her well as we continue to see her name included on festival line-ups.

The Shires feat Lauren Alaina | Lightning Strikes

Review From its acapella start, ‘Lightening Strikes’ builds to a catchy rhythm that has more rises and falls than a quickstep. The clever chorus is punctuated with effective tacets, giving it that traditional country sound that will stay with you long after the song...

Sean C Kennedy | Wild Forever

Review   Wild Forever by Scottish born Sean Kennedy is a song that oozes freedom, images of wide open spaces with a worry free existence and it wouldn’t be out of place as the track of choice for a romantic Viennese waltz on Strictly.  Now living permanently in...
