Los Angeles, CA
Folk / Orchestral
everyone... I usually save personal invites to shows for those special occassions.
Well tomorrow nights show fits the bill for sure. The line up is absolutely
amazing. Check out the links below. And as I'm playing all by my lonesome,
I have the honor of kicking off the night. Solo Acoustic Rock. I'm
planning on enjoying the evening afterwards to check out the other acts.
It's all about the community folks. So come on out and spend the evening
with myself and other fancy people. That's right, I'm fancy. And more
importantly, I love you.

"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,
