About/Intro:

Chiara Berardelli is an Italian Scottish singer-songwriter living in Glasgow, Scotland. She grew up playing classical piano but spent most of her time playing along to any songs that made it over the airwaves to the Highlands of Scotland.

Chiara left her job as a doctor to follow her passion and studied music and songwriting in London and Bath. A lover of words, chords, and honesty she writes confessional pop songs about life and how it affects her.

In 2010 she recorded her debut album ‘Don’t Be So Lovely’ with Mark Freegard (Eddi Reader, Del Amitri) at Kyoti studio, Glasgow and self-released a further EP,  ‘My Big Mouth’ in 2014.

Her new album, Seamonster, released on March 2nd, 2018, is her most personal project to date, inspired by the loss of her dream of becoming a mother. The songs depict a journey, from the crashing realisation that something so longed for is permanently out of reach in the title track to the tentative beginnings of finding joy again in the song Somewhere New.

Deep Space Hibernation, the lead single from the album, was chosen by Radio Scotland’s Janice Forsyth as her single of the week on the Afternoon Show and has also won an International Songwriting Award. Chiara will be launching the album in Scotland at the end of March and is planning a UK wide tour in the Autumn.

Questions:

I really like the ‘Another Planet’ track, tell us the back story.

Tell us about your album Seamonster?

How has the music helped you process childlessness?  How do you want it to help those of us who are listening to your music?

 

How long were you a practicing GP–general practitioner?

In our initial conversation, you mentioned you never wanted to be a doctor, but is there any aspect of it that you miss?

What kind of response do you get at your gigs, to the songs? Do you tell the audience the reason behind the album?

What does your family think about your new life calling?

When is your next gig?

Is there anything else you would like to tell us before we wrap up?
