BIO - Updated September 2012:
Chatham Street hit the music scene with their debut CD, “Last One Out”, in October of 2010. On September 15, 2012, they opened at the legendary venue, The Birchmere, opening for Don McLean, famous for songs such as "Bye Bye Miss American Pie" and "Vincent" (Starry Starry Night). They've also opened for John McCutcheon, Catie Curtis, "Girls, Guns, and Glory", and Christine Lavin. They've shared stages with Grace Pettis, Scott Ainslie, Tom Prasada-Rao, Cary Cooper, many other excellent performers. They will be opening for the legendary band, "Seldom Scene" in April of 2013. In addition, they have received 17 songwriting awards and placements for songs on their two CD's.
Although “Chatham Street” is only a couple of years old, husband and wife, Peter and Christal Prout, have been playing music for years. Taking the name of the street they lived on in Detroit, “Chatham Street” was formed when Christal decided to pen her own songs as “therapy for so much loss in such a short time”. And, apparently she has found her calling. They like to call their sound "New Americana", as they feel it carries multiple musical influences, from old-time gospel, bluegrass, rootsy-folk, yet has the edginess of the contemporary rock and pop music they grew up with. Christal’s vocals are a cross between Celtic and southern “down-home”, and they soar over Peter’s tasteful vintage guitar, sounding just like her Scottish-Appalachian heritage. Together, they are a magical and refreshing combination.
The second CD, "All That Mattered”, was released on September 10, 2011, almost one year after the first CD. In spring of 2012 it was nominated for a WAMMIE award (Washington DC's version of the Grammy's) for Best Folk/Contemporary Recording of the Year. Chatham Street also received a second WAMMIE nomination for Folk/Contemporary Group of the Year. A third CD is currently in progress and is planned to be out in 2013.
