Described as a prodigy, at 14 Chantel was told by major labels “great voice, but girls don’t play guitar like that!” Wisely ignoring that advice, she enrolled at the world-renowned Leeds College of Music and became the first student in the college’s history, to achieve a 100% pass mark, with 18 distinctionsChantel left with a First Class Honours degree in Popular Music and a coveted prize, for outstanding musicianship.
