Andy Chipman~ “Artist Spotlight”!!!

Andy Chipman started his musical career at the young age of 8 when he talked his father into allowing him take piano lessons and not long after that he started to play the guitar. Songwriting would end up being his next purpose in life.

Over time, Chipman had kept his music alive by filling open mic nights and playing local shows, however once you are alive you just keep getting older and there no more time to waste before you are in your 20’s. Chipman could no longer fight off the piles of not heard songs that had been collecting dust at the bottom of his drawer. 

            In 2016, Chipman’s company made a surprise moves to reposition him from Massachusetts to Arizona to help increase setups out West. It was there he crossed trails with local producer Stephen Moyer and retired Nashville session/tour drummer Bobby Earl Hamilton. The three of them had immediate chemistry and teamed up to bring to life Chipman first debut single “Black On Out.” This song is an update anthem that recalls a rollercoaster ride of early adulthood and the errors, unlearned lessons, and complex relationships that come with it. 

            On November 23, 2018 Chipman put out his latest single “Black On Out,” and it is available both on Spotify and iTunes. If you would like to find out more Andy Chipman then check out his website at https://andychipman.com.

The highlight of her summer shows was playing a show with Aaron Goodvin and Aaron Pritchett on the Westerner Days Mainstage at the Enmax Centrium in Red Deer. Aichelle’s drive has continued into the fall with more big shows and a trip back to Nashville to write and record new music.

            Following a long week playing two dates with her band on the Canadian Finals Rodeo Mainstage in Red Deer, including being one of the opening acts for Lindsay Ell, Aichelle released her newest single “Doin’ Here” on November 7, 2018. “Doin Here,” takes on an adventure to an old bar, a dance floor and a few beers and an energetic female who is not scared to make the first move. This song was co-written by Joe Forte and recorded in Nashville with Daniel Dennis at Prime Cut Studio, Aichelle is happy about the new sound of “Doin’ Here,” and looks forward to playing it live with her band.

After 6 months, Aichelle’s voice was completely reinstated nothing little of a miracle. Aichelle hopes to inspire others with her story of hope and faith.
