Robert Chaney in session for Roots & Fusion

16 November 2016 by Pure Radio

Robert Chaney was recommended to me a couple of years ago by Del Day of ARK Promotions and I’ve been playing his music on the show ever since.

I was very pleased when promoter and friend of the show Sebastian Reynolds managed to arrange a recording session with Robert the morning after his stunning performance at Gulliver’s in Manchester.

Robert recorded 6 songs with occasional vocal harmonies supplied by his wife and musical partner Laura Tenschert and then we had a chat…

Session recorded by Roots & Fusion’s own sound engineer, Aaron Hixon.

1) Swing Low
2) The Cyclist
3) Does Your Love Pay Out In Full
4) Patch It Up
5) Stand, Stumble & Fall
6) Corazones Amarillos
