Michael Chapman first became known on the London folk circuit in 1966. Playing a blend of atmospheric and autobiographical material, he established a reputation for intensity and innovation.

Signed to EMI’s Harvest label he recorded a quartet of classic albums. LPs like Rainmaker and Wrecked Again defined the melancholic observer role Michael was to make his own, mixing intricate guitar instrumentals with a full band sound.

Chapman is known as one of the UK’s best finger picking style guitar players, part of a continuing musical lineage that includes the likes of Ralph McTell, John Martyn, Davey Graham and Bert Jansch.

Collaborations with Thurston MooreJohn Fahey and Jack Rose and appearances on recordings with Hiss Golden Messenger and Steve Gunn has cemented Chapman’s position as pivotal figure in roots, folk and acoustic guitar playing over the last 50 years.

‘This is the sound of a real songwriter who’s lived a real life and all that entails.’ – Q MAGAZINE
