Chapin Mathews , a multi-media artist, designer, musician and photographer, captures the diversity of today’s world with authentic merit. Destined to be a visual artist, one night at the ripe age of 4 his father handed him a 1970 35mm Nikkormat that he used to take his first photograph of music icon Aimee Mann. In his mid to late teens he spent several years studying the traditional techniques of photography and darkroom procedures while simultaneously learning the newly developing age of digital design and production.

In 2009, Chapin received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Virginia Commonwealth University, going on to travel 50,000 miles as a performing visual artist and documentarian before the age of 30. Through these travels he gained significant cultural and spiritual experiences, which aided in developing both his ability to compassionately relate to humanity and his current creative voice.

Chapin’s work is a credible reflection of unique lifestyles that tend to receive distorted views. Through his work Chapin challenges stigmas and taboo perspectives on these lifestyles, representing a common thread of humanity we are all connected to.

First concept album out now "Coming Into The New"

Aloha everyone,  

Here is a link to my first ever concept album titled "Coming Into The New". It is currently available as a free stream and name your price download on Bandcamp. As I believe music should be freely shared and experienced in this day and age of technology, donations (though not expected) do help support the continuation of a life style devoted to creative service. Here is a description of the album's concept and I hope you enjoy! 

 
 
"Coming Into The New" conceptualizes a synthesis of the modern electronic world through the tonal projections of acoustic instrumentation. Chapin Mathews arranges a unique, tranquil atmosphere through electronic looping and pedal work driven by the acoustic guitar that will take the listener on an auditory journey ranging from meditative impressions to buoyantly rhythmic articulation.
 
Created at home in Boulder Colorado, all tracks were recorded live with the absence of any post overdubbing or layering. This process enabled an improvised, one of a kind track to be created in the moment. Open your heart and mind as you take a journey through the avant-garde sounds of "Coming Into The New".
