Jon Chapman

Comment | Rockingham Arms, Wentworth | Comment by Allan Wilkinson

Not only was it Jon’s debut at The Rockingham Arms in Wentworth last night, it was also this latest line up’s debut anywhere.  Having recently been joined by the Norwegian cellist Kim Kristian Osmundsvaag – a right mouthful for MC Rob Shaw, who usually has some difficulty with two syllable names – Jon and Ben’s sound was fattened up and brought together in a consistent unity, which gave Jon’s songs the treatment they truly deserve.  I was particularly pleased that they chose to play a set of nothing but Jon’s originals, because I think they stand up to anything else out there.  An enormous talent, and one that some of us have had our eye on for quite a while now.
