Bio

Brenda Chapman is a gifted singer/songwriter based in Fremantle, Western Australia who writes to express the heartfelt stories from her own colorful life. She delivers her engaging storytelling with big, soulful vocals and a unique earthy guitar style. Brenda is often referred to as “The Queen of the Chorus” for her captivating melodies. She gives a powerfully mesmerizing and lightly humorous performance to her audiences.
Brenda grew up in a large and witty musical family in coastal NSW where she learned to sing and play guitar from her older siblings. She was invited to join her first working cover band at the age of 20 as the new front person. But she soon tired of doing covers and quickly moved on to play in bands that were keen to perform original material. After moving to Fremantle, Brenda spent four years handcrafting and producing the twelve tracks for her own debut album “Postcards from Exile” which was launched at Kulcha with her full seven piece backing band in August 2008.
“Post Cards From Exile” was co-produced by David Hyams (Miles To Go Band) who also plays some stunning acoustic and electric guitar, dobro and mandolin parts on the recording. The awesome Ben Franz (The Waifs) is featured on upright and electric bass, and is well complemented by the talents of Calvin Webb on drum kit. Arun (Blue Shaddy) adds some magic touches with his tasteful hand percussion.
The full length album covers a wide range of moods from soulful acoustic folk ballads and heartfelt love songs, to a timeless blues lament and some quirky up-beat contemporary tracks.
Brenda and her full band have been performing the material from "Postcards From Exile" to enthusiastic audiences at some of Western Australia's major music festivals including Fairbridge Festival, Nanga Music Festival, and The Denmark Festival of Voice.
