The artist known as My Name is Chapel releases a new single called Taxi Cab today. Chapel is also in the midst of producing and scoring his first film. We discuss this, his recent full-length album, the origins of his name, and more.
We start by discussing our shared connection of previous guest Chris Avetta and go on to discuss:
- The process of producing his album Empire State
- How Amy Schumer inspired him
- The story behind his new single
- His love of vinyl
- The inspiration for his artist name
- His horror movie project
- Why music theory was never really his ‘thing’
1. Inspiration can come from the most random places – just listen to it.
2. Embrace your multi-passionate nature.
“I’ve always been a singer, but I’ve also been a class clown, too… obviously I’m serious when I’m singing a serious song, but afterwards I like to crack a joke.”
—My Name is Chapel
