Kids, things are about to get strange. BMG / Fieldhouse Music artist Chapell will be taking the full band to NYC’s infamous Slipper Room for a special Show on Wednesday, Oct 26 at 8pm. (Doors at 7pm) The Slipper Room is at 167 Orchard Street.
If you haven’t heard of Chapell before, you’re in for one of the most entertaining nights of the year. Borrowing equally from iconic bands like Counting Crows, Talking Heads and Van Morrison, Chapell has created a unique sound that includes fiddle, his trademark cornet and four incredibly soulful backup singers. Chapell mixes some deliciously hummable pop melodies with soul searching lyrics in a way that evokes a younger Jonathan Richman of the Modern Lovers.
Chapell’s debut album The Redhead’s Allegations is beginning to climb the CMJ charts. Produced by Jerry Harrison of Talking Heads, this album is destined get some serious attention in 2016, and is likely to be on anyone’s guilty pleasure playlist.
Chapell’s band features a who’s who of the NYC music scene over the past two decades and includes a number of artists who have featured roles in national acts. For more information, or to join Chapell’s mailing list, please contact info@ThisIsChapell.com.
