CPO5 is a musical representation of the awareness of life. Their music breathes goodwill, but still captures the sometimes sad condition of man. Listening to CPO5 is a journey of the very thing that makes us human - the soul.


As one of Milwaukee's brightest new bands, Chapman Party of Five (CPO5), has recently been hailed as the most "refreshing" sound to hit the Milwaukee scene in years. Their melodic blend of music is pure unadulterated emotion.

Led by their reclusive lead singer/songwriter, Jamye Chapman, whom Pairadice Productions called "One of the finest talents ever filmed," CPO5 has been steadily gaining momentum and fans since the moment they stepped onto the stage together. Jamye is backed up by a group of young yet experienced musicians: Jordan Brenegan, a classical violinist by trade, has played the fiddle for 17 years and is regarded as the one of the best in the Midwest. Carter Manley, is a burgeoning star on the bass. Relatively unknown because of his youth, there are very few who can match his talent, intuitiveness, and groove. Chad Burgess is one of those drummers who come around every ten years. Inspired by the great Carter Beauford, Chad provides the backbone of the band and does it well.

CPO5's roots are in the Rock/Jam band scene, but they have composed spectacular music for just about every genre. A great sample of this new fusion music can in works that range from folk lullabies such as, "Dreaming of You," to hard rock hits like their EP title song, "the Eleventh Hour." While CPO5's music is highly accessible their music stretches the audience and band to new heights with their exciting, rhythmically charged style of music that is making their name famous on the Milwaukee entertainment scene.
