About Chantel McGregor

At seven, Chantel began guitar lessons, and at the grand old age of eight she became the youngest person in the country to pass a Rockschool grade. By 12 years, she was a regular participant at the weekly jam session at the Melbourne Hotel in Bradford. Helped and encouraged by all the musicians, she developed rapidly into an incredible rock and blues musician.

Now qualified at grade eight and the holder of the 2006/2007 prize for outstanding musicianship at the world renowned Leeds College of Music, a chance meeting with a well known local band saw Chantel back doing what she does best – singing and playing with feel to die for – which led to the formation of a blues-rock trio, the Chantel McGregor Band.

Whilst playing extensively around the North of England (and jamming on a few occasions with her friend and hero, a certain Mr Joe Bonamassa), she continued her college studies, achieving a BA First Class honours degree in popular music in July 2009.
