Hello 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 of reasons:


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. 


If any 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 Connection

"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,
