MICHAEL CHAPMAN first became known on the London and Cornish folk circuits in mid-1966. Playing a blend of atmospheric and autobiographical material he established a reputation for intensity and innovation. While living in Hull, East Yorkshire, in late 1969, he signed to EMI's Harvest label & recorded a quartet of classic albums. LPs like ’Fully Qualified Survivor,’ 'Rainmaker', ‘Window’ and 'Wrecked Again' defined the melancholic observer role Michael was to make his own, mixing intricate guitar instrumentals with a full band sound.

He is one of the UK’s best known finger picking style guitar players. As part of a continuing musical lineage that includes the likes of Ralph McTell, John Martyn, Davey Graham & Bert Jansch, Chapman is still touring and recording and his playing is on top form.

Michael continues to release new recordings at a phenomenal rate and is thought to have recorded nearly 60 recordings over his career.
