Everyone… Chapa Here... This is the first time I've written you
guys here on Reverbnation. First of all, I want to thank you all for signing
my mailing list. I completely understand that most of you are in the same
boat as I. We are independent artists working hard to be heard. It's
a tough business we are in but I'm sure you guys feel the same, it's worth every
second of every day. With that said, 2012 was an exceptional year. And
more importantly, 2013 promises to be even better.
I'm writing for a couple
First of all, I have three new shows coming up in February I want to share
with you all. For those of you in and around Los Angeles of course.
See below for the details.
Secondly, I recently hired an artist
development company to help with the business side of the house. Let’s
face it, most artists have trouble getting it all necessary work completed without
help. I’m excited to be working with these fine folks as I get my
ducks in a row to push the career forward as an Independent Artist.
of you are interested, I'll pass you the contact info. They are very honest
folks with a lot to provide an independent artist. Write me back if your interest
is sparked. And just so you know, I'm not trying to get a discount from these
guys or payback. They have helped me immensely and I know that some of you
could use it as well.
More News to Come soon!!!
Much Love and respect.

"If "original" is what you seek, look no further than Chapa, who effortlessly
blends high art with folk-inspired spiritual music. This is pure poetry. The classical
instrumentation coupled with bold experimentation make Chapa and his band of merrymen
cutting-edge artists. This music challenges the mind and the senses." Howard
Lawrence, Reverbnation Artist
"Chapa and his group offer
eccentric and against-the-grain music, deploying oboe, cello, and flute in an overall
acoustic sound that takes chances and sometimes echoes the work of Jeff Buckley,
Badly Drawn Boy and even the Incredible String Band. Chapa’s voice, recorded
raw and unadorned, is fine in an alternative context and his lyrics are literate.
The tunes seem “live in studio,” yet conjure rich atmospheres, especially
the tranquil, Asian-influenced “This World Around.”" Music
"It is nearly impossible to describe the music with precision,
mixing percussion, cello, organ and guitar to carefully crafted stories. Chapa's
sound is reminiscent of the experimental Vinyl's of the 70's, such as Silver Mt.
Zion, with his aerial quotations that are falsely minimalist." Eric Cambray,
