Chiara Berardelli at the Battery

August 30, 2018
6:00 pmto8:00 pm

Chiara is an Italian Scottish singer-songwriter living in Glasgow, saw the Dunbar Battery when in town visiting a friend and liked the space so much, she had to play there. Wow! The power of the Battery (Pun, slightly intended!)

We are very fortunate to welcome her to town again on Thursday 30th August for a performance that promises to be a great night. Get your pizza, and your fizz and join us for a special evening.


Chiara 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. 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 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.
