Jym Chapman & The Migrant Workers / Bio

Jym Chapman & The Migrant Workers are a Roots-Rock/Americana band from Charlotte, NC. A focus on socially conscious lyrics paired with a raw, guitar driven sound provide a little more edge than a typical Americana band. Influences range from Tom Petty and The Black Crowes to Bob Marley and Bloodkin. The band has shared the stage with some of Charlotte's top acts, including David Childers and the Overmountain Men, Temperance League, Sinners & Saints, Amigo, The Black Hounds, Motel Glory, and the Mike Strauss Band. The new EP, "Little Pieces" can be purchased on the groups' Band Camp page at: htttp://JymChapmanandTheMigrantWorkers.bandcamp.com/

Fate and coincidence are strong forces. Some would argue that they are really one in the same. Whichever it is, it was these forces that brought Jym Chapman(vocals/guitar) and Rick Sichler(drums/vocals) together 8 years ago in a prior band, Blue Static. After the demise of that project, it was time for what had been only an idea to become a real band. Rehearsals began, songs were crafted, and something different from anything Jym and Rick had done before began to take shape. Around this time, fate intervened again, introducing Kevin Snyder(bass/vocals). With the stripped down three-piece format of guitar, bass, and drums Jym Chapman & The Migrant Workers had taken shape. After playing successful shows around Charlotte, Asheville, and the triangle area for much of 2011 and 2012, the band entered the recording studio in the fall of 2012 to begin recording their debut, the EP "Little Pieces." After seeing the album's March 2013 release at Snug Harbor reach a near capacity crowd, the band is currently booking spring and summer show dates. Booking inquiries can be made by emailing:
