Album Review: Chloë Chadwick – Dustbowl Jukebox

Chloë Chadwick Album ‘Dustbowl Jukebox'

Chloë Chadwick is a British pop Singer/Songwriter whose music has a distinct country edge to it, she’s originally from Staffordshire although she’s currently based in Birmingham. If you want to find out more about her then check out this Interview I did with her about a month ago. Anyway today I’ll be reviewing her album ‘Dustbowl Jukebox’ which was released on the 30th June 2017.

‘Love Will Find A Way’ hooked me from the first second, she first out the lyrics fast without rushing, the tempo and energy really drive the song and her voice is exceptional. I can see myself legitimately listening to it years from now. Its catchy, relevant and has a strong message, and it’s not easy to manage one of those but Chloe Chadwick manages them all at the same time.

‘Big River’ has a softer intro, and gives us another side to her voice, more melodic and really shows of her range. ‘Big River’ is a really touching song, and even two tracks in I’m convinced of her talent and can’t believe I’ve gone this long without her songs in my life.

‘Stranger’s World’ has a bouncing percussive intro, that’s built on my acoustic guitars, which all gather pace and energy and don’t give up. Again, it’s impressive how Chadwick can do these faster paced songs with as much ease as the slower tracks, most artist have a preference but she sounds just as good belting out these catchy, pop tunes as she does singing the more emotional ballads.

‘IAMNOTAMACHINE’ is one of my favourites on the album, its a soft swinging melody that again really gives Chadwick’s voice a chance to shine. I listened to this one maybe a half a dozen times because it’s just one of those songs you’d hear on the radio and go crazy for it.

‘Summertime Lovin’ comes in half way through the album, and its another beautiful melody, and it really lets go, and in this song you can really feel the country inspiration and it works, it’s not an homage or a rip off of anything its just genuine and honest and most of all it’s really enjoyable. Another track I listened to a bunch.

‘Don’t Be Shy’ slows things down a little after the last track, but again I’m impressed by Chloe Chadwick’s voice, its a real gift and she really knows how to make it work with the style of music she performs.

‘Plain Old Jane’ is another personal favourite, it’s a little different from the last couple of tracks, and again shows another side to her music. This track certainly has a little edge to it and it really comes across well in the track.

‘I’m The One (wearing hearts)’ is another fast paced song, I usually prefer slower songs but with Chadwicks style I think I really do like the faster songs on this album the most, and this one doesn’t fail to impress. I like the passion and personality that went into this track, I think if I could only recommend one track on this track it’d be this one.

‘Never Change’ slows things back down, with longer drawn out chords on the acoustic guitar, and while I really enjoyed the faster track on this album this is still a really strong addition.

‘Good Enough To Try’ is an amazing track that is somewhere between sadness and hopeful and it’s a wonderful final track to what has been a great album.

So that’s what I thought of Chloë Chadwick and her album ‘Dustbowl Jukebox’ and if you want to check it out for yourself then visit Spotify and if you want to keep up to date with her then follow her Facebook and Twitter.
