THE CHAPLINS ARE AN AWARD-WINNING AMERICANA BAND BASED IN GLASGOW. THEY ARE CURRENTLY TOURING THEIR DEBUT ALBUM, THE CIRCUS, WHICH CLIMBED INTO THE TOP 10 IN THE iTUNES COUNTRY CHART.


JILL (SINGER/SONGWRITER) AND LISA (DRUMMER) FORMED THE CHAPLINS AS A FRESH NEW PROJECT AFTER TOURING AMERICA TOGETHER IN 2012. INSPIRED BY THEIR JOURNEY FROM NEW YORK TO NEW ORLEANS, THESE TWO ESTABLISHED MUSICIANS EMBARKED UPON THEIR NEW CHAPTER, ENROLLING JOHNNY (KEYS) AS THE THIRD CORE MEMBER OF THE BAND. SHORTLY AFTER FORMING, THE CHAPLINS QUICKLY WON THE HEARTS OF MANY THOUSANDS WHILST SHOWCASING THEIR DEBUT EP 'INTRODUCING THE CHAPLINS' SUPPORTING RUNRIG ON THEIR 2012 EUROPEAN TOUR.








RECENTLY THEIR MUSIC HAS CAUGHT THE ATTENTION OF BOTH BBC RADIO AND TELEVISION WITH THE BAND MAKING THEIR NATIONAL TV DEBUT AND GAINING RADIO AIRPLAY THROUGHOUT THE UK AND US.


THERE ARE EVIDENT INFLUENCES IN THE CHAPLINS DEBUT ALBUM FROM ALISON KRAUSS TO EARLY EMMYLOU HARRIS BUT THIS BAND STAND ALONE WITH THEIR MUSIC AND EMINENT SONGS. WHILST THE FOUNDATION OF THE CHAPLINS SOUND IS AMERICANA, THERE ARE MANY INFLUENCES AMONGST THE BAND MEMBERS THAT COME TOGETHER TO CREATE THE SOPHISTICATED SOUND THAT THEY PRODUCE LIVE.

“IT WAS AN ABSOLUTE PLEASURE TO HAVE THE CHAPLINS ON TOUR WITH US – THEY WENT DOWN A STORM WITH AUDIENCES EVERYWHERE THEY PLAYED. SURELY ONLY A MATTER OF TIME BEFORE THIS LARGELY UNDISCOVERED BAND MAKE A MAJOR BREAKTHROUGH.”  

RORY MACDONALD – RUNRIG

"THE CIRCUS IS QUITE AMAZING. BEAUTIFULLY PRODUCED, BEAUTIFULLY PLAYED AND BEAUTIFULLY SUNG."

MIKE HARDING - THE MIKE HARDING FOLK SHOW


*****

"THE CIRCUS CAPTURES THE BAND IN SUPERB FORM. FROM OPENER ROBIN HOOD, WITH ITS LILTING LEAD LINE, TO PIANO BALLAD, RAISE THE ALARM, THIS ALBUM IS ALWAYS CAPTIVATING AND HARMONIOUS. THE THREE-PIECE INFUSES EVERY TRACK WITH SOPHISTICATION."
