Who the heck is Chaplin? I am just an ordinary girl. A new singer/songwriter who started playing the guitar three years ago. When I learned to put chords together the songs just started coming to me. I had no idea I could write a song but I just kept at it and enjoy playing music so much! One thing led to another and before I knew it, I was recording my songs and making a CD!!! Growing up with musical parents, my father was a classically trained pianist. They created a very loving, creative environment. I enjoyed hanging out and listening to my father compose music. His favorite genre was old school jazz. My mother has a lovely voice. She was always singing around the house. At a young age I enjoyed the music of Sonny Stitt,Bill Evans,Miles Davis,Astrud Gilberto,Sarah Vaughn,Oscar Peterson, the list goes on and on. I remember one Christmas at the age of eight, my father surprised me with a miniature grand piano. I demanded he play 'The Shadow Of Your Smile' on this tiny little piano while I sang along. My Father only wanted his children listening to jazz. So...I would sneak rock albums into the house. Thus, starting my love for rock music... Recording my c.d. was a great experience. All the songs came from a real place in my heart thus the title 'REAL'.
