Jen Chapin on Java Blend September 7, 2012

With story songs that search for community and shared meaning, Jen Chapin creates a funk and soul inspired kind of urban folk that has been called “brilliant and soulfully poetic” by National Public Radio and “addictive” by the Boston Globe. With five albums to her name, Chapin’s most recent release, ReVisions: Songs of Stevie Wonder debuted in 2009 and was praised as sophisticated and miraculous.

With a new record scheduled for release in this spring, Chapin expands her experience and musicianship alongside her Grammy-nominated husband and acoustic bassist Stephen Crump and guitarist Jamie Fox. As an activist, a mother and a musician, Chapin has been featured on Late Night with Conan O’Brien and has shared the stage with Bruce Springsteen.
