Watch Out! Robert Chaney – ‘Patch It Up’ [VIDEO]

Robert Chaney - 'Patch It Up'

The new cut from American-born, London-based singer/songwriter Robert Chaney evokes an earlier time when the line between folk and blues were blurred.

Sparse guitar dances around Chaney’s nasal,high-lonesome delivery as a crumbling home serves as a metaphor for a failing relationship.

The video mirrors the theme well as Chaney frets, pines and sings among the ruins. Vintage clips of disaster and destruction furthers the mood as external forces drive toward doom as he futilely pleads for reconciliation.

“Come back inside, we’ll retire all this spite, rectify the excitement, we’ll stay up all night and, then you and I will try and patch it up”

Chaney recalls the moments that lead to recording:
“The record almost didn’t happen,” recalls Robert. “After moving from Florida to London, I didn’t know anyone. I thought I was going to have to get into the open mic grind. So I went to one and showed up late and they put me on last.” But it was on the strength of this performance that Robert was approached by producer Ken Brake (The Clientele, Louis Philippe), and the two started working in Ken’s London studio, recording dozens of songs over a number of months. Most of the songs on the final record are first or second takes.

‘Patch It Up’ if from Robert Chaney’s debut album ‘Cracked Picture Frames’ out digitally Feb 15 and on CD April 26th.
