INDIE ROCKER HENRY CHADWICK RELEASES NEW SINGLE “AWAKE”
ANNOUNCES NEW EP ‘THE PRESIDENT OF MAKE BELIEVE’
SWOON CITY MUSIC
Santa Cruz indie rocker Henry Chadwick announces a new EP titled The President of Make Believe, out this Fall via Swoon City Music. Grimy Goods premiered the raucous lead single “Awake” complimenting the “head-crashing percussion and buzzy-guitar work,” and highlighting, “Chadwick’s cutting croon that cuts through it all.”
Henry Chadwick is a Santa Cruz, CA-based singer-songwriter, musician and producer. Chadwick’s music dances between genres and lands somewhere between indie, garage rock, psychedelia, and shimmery, sunshine-tinged power-pop.
Chadwick’s self-produced and self-released 2016 debut EP Guest At Home first showcased his skills as a writer, engineer, mixer, and performer. The EP garnered attention from prominent blogs and outlets such as Rolling Stone, Time, Huffington Post, Indie Shuffle and others. Rolling Stone and Time Magazine listed it as one of the best albums to come out in the first half of 2016.
In late 2017 Henry Chadwick entered the studio with producer Rob Schnapf (Elliott Smith, Beck, Kurt Vile) and engineer, Brian Rosemeyer (Kurt Vile, Cass McCombs, Surfer Blood), and emerged with his most personal and ambitious effort to date. Chadwick acted as a multi-instrumentalist again, playing drums, guitar, bass and keys on the record. The 11-song album, which came out in the 2nd half of 2018, is named Marlin Fisher, after Henry’s two middle names. Marlin Fisher has received praise from the likes of Rolling Stone, No Depression and more.
In 2019, Chadwick is back and releasing a 5 song EP titled The President Of Make Believe with Brooklyn-based Indie label, Swoon City Music. The tracks were recorded partially in Santa Cruz, as well as Brooklyn with engineer Mike Beck, who also mixed the EP.
‘”Pairing winsome yet plainspoken vocals with bright power chords, this Californian pledges his fealty to power-pop…Smart and brisk, even when Chadwick is in reflective mode.” – Rolling Stone
“Henry Chadwick: A name you are hearing frequently and with good reason…Chadwick’s talent for not only writing a catchy song but producing one, is impressive…Filled with indie pop hooks and intriguiging imagery, it’s safe to say that Chadwick and his band of merry men will stand the test of time.” – No Depression
“…This spunky throwback to the heyday of power pop will thrill devotees of the skinny-tie era while delighting listeners looking for guitar tracks with bite.” – Time
