Biography

Billy Chapman has been entertaining audiences in the Central Florida area for more than twenty years, both as an engaging front man and an intense solo acoustic performer. His original brand of beach-style rock highlights his whiskey-soaked vocals, energetic guitar work, and prodigious songwriting skills, in addition to providing a showcase for the many talented musicians with whom he has shared the stage over the years.
Billy gained notoriety as a lead vocalist, guitarist, and songwriter in the early 1990’s, as a founding member of A Million Tiny Fingers, and later, The Karmic Tricycle. He continues to amaze and entertain audiences well into the new millennium with The Billy Chapman Band.
John Paul McCune, original drummer for A Million Tiny Fingers (and, later, Space Coast 90’s sensation HoneySpot), throws down the beat with authority and power. Dave Clark, long-time bassist and vocalist for Brevard favorite Taylor Made, rounds out the trio with fat bass lines and sweet vocal harmonies.
With rich melodies, surprising instrumental variations, and a tight, seasoned sound, the Billy Chapman band will rock you!
