CASEY CHAPMAN - SKIN (EP)
I’ve always believed that no matter how good an artist is, they can be greater with a great
producer and sound engineer.
When it comes to Nashville producers, names like Chet Atkins, Larry Butler, Rick Rubin and many more may spring to mind with traditional country fans, however with all due respect many may not know Jack Gale here in the UK as well as the aforementioned.
Owner of record companies over the years and a radio personality in Charlotte, North Carolina Jack has published and produced many of the country music household names. Tammy Wynette, Waylon Jennings, Tanya Tucker ,Crystal Gayle, George Jones are only a few to mention.
He recently ended his ten year retirement from the business when he was offered the rights to quite a few marketable songs.
Albeit that Jack is now in his eighty sixth year he is still looking for new recording artists and
has reinvented his Playback Record label.
A few weeks ago he send me an EP of a young nineteen year old artist called Casey Chapman from Milan, Indiana and asked me to take a listen to her debut release entitled ‘Skin’. I was so
impressed that I made it Album Of The Week’ on my weekly American Connection Country Radio Show.
Although she says she is influenced by the music of Carrie Underwood she marks her own individual vocal stamp on each of the four tracks presented on this release .
The listener is treated to contemporary modern country at its best with brilliant musicianship
complimenting the light and shade shown in her vocal ability, to my mind leading her to a future place in the country charts.
The only criticism I would have is that there are only four songs on this occasion, this young lady is worthy of a full album.
Well done Casey and of course Jack Gale for finding such a talent.
