Dan Chapman

Dan Chapman


We're very excited to welcome back Dan Chapman. After many adventures touring and travelling he's back in Cornwall for the summer.

Dan Chapman emerged with a self titled EP in late 2014 and has been performing regularly ever since, touring with his quartet during 2015 in the UK and then solo in Australia, New Zealand, and Europe throughout 2016-17. He produced and released a Live E.P. released on Christmas Day 2016 that features recordings from St John’s Church Hall, Cornwall.

With the versatility of Dan’s voice combined with an ambient style of guitar, Dan Chapman forges a sound that opens the mind, ebbing and flowing through different emotions to encompass and captivate audiences.

2018 looks to be an exciting year for Dan as he records two new projects set to be released later in the year. He will be performing regularly in the Uk during the festival season and then in Australia towards the Australian spring.

“Dan’s solo rendition of 'Strange Fruit' is masterful, he lifts mountains with the height and brightness of his falsetto and digs deep with gravelly tones exactly where it is appropriate.” - Raving Wild

"Beautiful, spiritual and from what I've seen over the last few years, incomparable with anyone else in the south west...A little Buckley/Drake-ish, always rootsy, inventive and inspirational...He is just awesome, come see for yourselves..." - psl

Booking details: No need to book, just turn up for this free gig! To book an overnight stay, visit YHA Treyarnon Bay.
