Next up was the album launch for “Blood Feels Warm” – the second offering from The Chapters – in the gorgeous setting of Smock Alley. I’d really enjoyed their debut “Perfect Stranger”, but had never had a chance to see them live. So I was excited to head along to this album launch and they didn’t disappoint. Their new line-up has led to a new sound, and it has less of a pop-rock sound and is far more country than their first album, but there is a simple honesty to their new songs that is just beautiful.
With an ever growing number of bodies on stage, the band looked like they were having a great time, and the crowd definitely seemed to be enjoying their return to live shows.
Finally, the support act Miriam Donohue was simply lovely.
