Chantel Mcgregor




Guitarist and singer-songwriter Chantel McGregor recently released her highly anticipated album, Lose Control, on her independent boutique label Tis Rock Music. The new album is the follow up to her critically acclaimed debut solo album, Like No Other.
Lose Control not only salutes contemporary rock, but shows her gradual transition from conventional Blues to a harder, bigger and bolder rock sound with progressive influences.

"I’ve always been interested in the dark side of Southern Gothic literature, artwork and media," says Chantel. "I wanted to create an album that reflected the imagery and themes of that genre. I drew inspiration from the TV shows True Detective and True Blood and studied the literary works of Tennessee Williams, Carson Mullers and Mark Twain."
"I also surrounded myself with imagery from artists and photographers such as Walker Evans and Clarence John Laughlin, all to immerse myself in the sinister, dark world of depravation, magic and voodoo, writing most of the songs from the perspective of the disturbed flawed characters."

Lose Control, sees Chantel channeling her guitar playing and song-writing into an exciting pantheon of rock crescendos and riffs, that will not only leave her devout blues rock fan base in awe, but will also lead them into a sonic journey that will take them into new musical territory, whilst sticking to her current obsession with all things Southern Gothic.
"My interpretation of Southern Gothic is the loss of control, either spiritually, physically (through other people or substances), or emotionally," reflects Chantel. "I drew on this theme a lot throughout the album, hence the title Lose Control. I wanted the sound and emotion of the album to reflect the concept, so I juxtaposed heavy, guitar riff-based, dark tracks with haunting, emotive acoustic tracks, whilst tying them together with the lyrical themes of desperation and loss so often seen in Southern Gothic fiction."
