When Russ Chapman says, ‘I never metaphor I didn’t like,’ you can take him at his word. After all, it was on the strength of his lyrical wit and stage presence that garnered Mr. Chapman the 2017 Telluride Blues Challenge award at the Telluride Blues & Brews Festival.
Of course, winning awards is not what music is really about. Music is about connection- performer and audience. And when you combine the originality of his songs, down-home foot stomp and uncanny mouth-trumpet, with his unique delivery and friendly vibe- you’ll see that connection. Audiences of all ages seem to find a happy place in his music, and for Russ Chapman, that’s what it’s all about.
Russ Chapman plays original New Orleans inspired folk-blues.
