James Chapman and the Blue Moon are proving you don’t need to be together for a long time, to know how to have a good time!
Forming in the winter of 2017, the trio (hailing from London’s outer suburbs) are cruising across the country with their modern blend of blues, country and rock n’ roll, echoing the southern twang of the acoustic guitar with rattling drums and an ever-driving bass.
Following their busy summer of back-to-back festivals throughout the UK in 2018, the guys are looking to bring their unique Americana sound to a bigger crowd! The guys have honed a collection of traditional country songs, stylized covers and energetic originals, reinforced with James’ powerful lead vocals and the pounding rhythm section of Al and Craig.
Comparisons flooding in, reminiscent of blues and country singers such as Jonny Cash and Hank Wiliams, to the more modern sounds of Springsteen, Ryan Adams and Sturgill Simpson with a healthy dose of Elvis,
The Beatles and The Rolling Stones style rock n’ roll. What’s not to love and sure to get you up on the dance floor! The trio’s growing reputation for frenetic live shows, dancing audiences and raucous performances is well earned.
So if you’re in need of powerful country tunes, with a western swing and plenty of foot-stomping… make way for James Chapman and the Blue Moon
