Michael Chapman: True North Album Tour
The way Michael Chapman sees it "the songs are the songs," and those on his new album TRUE NORTH, fit a kind of mold that's comfortable - and even a bit surprising - for the venerable British singer, songwriter and guitarist.
"I got lucky this time," the 78-year-old Chapman says. "Sometimes I write songs that can only be done with a band. Sometimes I write songs so loose they could only be done solo. I got lucky because most of the songs on this album I could do either way."
And Chapman is so happy with the results - produced by Steve Gunn, who worked with him on last year's acclaimed 50, and recorded in rural Wales with a band that includes a cellist and pedal steel player - that for the first time ever he'll be playing an album in its entirety on this tour.
