Eddy Chapman is an Alternative Rock Artist. His lyrics and songwriting style captures the emotions of everyday living.
He released his debut album, Lie-a-bility in 2020 with the single Trust in Love. Eddy's sound is a unique blend of genre's as he believes that an artist should not be confined by or placed in a box by a specific genre alone. He believes that music affects everyone differently and that all styles are needed as life consist of both the good and bad parts. Accordingly, his writing style ranges from energetic to melancholic melodies. Eddy wants to manifest emotions through his music to which fans can relate to when they themselves do not have the words to express their feelings.
Eddy grew up in a musical family where the melodies of CCR, Roxette and Neil Diamond used to echo through their house. He played piano when he was younger but showed his interest in guitar when he stumbled upon Bon Jovi's "It's my life" on MTV at the age of 15. It was at this age that Eddy decided he wanted a career in music. His love for music grew and he started playing guitar soon after. He wrote his first song at the age of 16. After being home schooled, he started a band and they did very well, making entertainment headlines of many newspapers and some radio stations, being labelled as trendsetters of Afrikaans Rock music in South Africa with their unique sound and song arrangements. Eddy wrote and arranged all the songs in the band, and they played countless gigs and toured in South Africa. Unfortunately, the band decided to pursue different paths in 2009. Eddy went solo and pursued his own career thereafter.
