A studio album by Roger Chapman is always an event.
Since 1966, when the British singer-songwriter emerged as the voice of his generation with the seminal Family band, through every twist of his four-decade solo career, Chappo's output has defied music industry protocol, challenged genre, and held up a mirror to the times. "I've never stopped writing," he reflects, "and with Life In The Pond, I felt the need to hear what I'd put down in music." Added Chapman of the album, "it's about nostalgia for the different musical styles that influenced my life” … “American rock from the '50s to now. British R'n'B from the '60s, like Georgie Fame, the Stones, Zoot Money.”
