Nashville band Colony House comes to StageOne

On Monday, June 18, the Fairfield Theatre Company will welcome the Nashville, Tennessee band Colony House to StageOne. Concert starts at 7:30.

Coming to StageOne just one day before appearing at one of the country’s biggest music festivals, Fire Fly, the creative force that Colony House embraces reflects the balances and the affinity of the sound of such alt-rock groups as Interpol, Arcade Fire and The Killers, all the while echoing the influences of such alternative icons as U2, New Order and Coldplay.

As the sons of a contemporary Christian pop superstar Steven Curtis Chapman, Caleb and Will Chapman hearts and souls were steeped in music since an early age that eventually led them to play and tour alongside their father.

It wasn’t till 2009 when the two brothers met Scott Mills that they decided to recreate themselves and their sound be adding new tight harmonies, strong instrumental elements with that of keen melodic melodies. It’s these sounds that are considered pleasantly true as principal songwriter Caleb Chapman effortlessly infects and resonates with audiences based upon personal experience and emotional authority.

“The songs I write have always come from deep places, whether they’re deep places of joy or deep places of hurt, and it can be hard inviting people into those places with you,” Caleb states. “Our musical and personal chemistry goes hand in hand. The three of us are best friends, which means that at any given moment we are each other’s worst enemies as well. Being in a band is like being in a marriage-it’s a constant reminder of your own pride, and a reminder that you have to be willing to sacrifice in order for it to be successful. We’ve made a conscious effort to build the foundation of the band on our friendship, and then letting that spill over into our creative relationship.”

That heart-on-sleeve honesty is just one of the qualities that make Colony House a special band; besides their dedicated passionate loyal fan base that is likely to expand substantially with the release of their newest full length album, When I Was Younger.

“We believe that we have a story to tell-a story of hope and perseverance-and that’s what we want to leave people with,” Caleb concludes. “We are not in the business of writing tragedies. We have experienced tragedy, but we’ve also seen hope triumph. Our faith is woven throughout everything we do musically, just as it’s woven into the foundation of our lives.”
