Caleb Chapman, lead songwriter and vocalist of indie rock band Colony House, has signed with Concord Music Publishing.
Originally from Franklin, Tennessee, brothers Caleb and Will Chapman formed Colony House with Scott Mills and Parke Cottrell. Their 2014 debut album, When I Was Younger, included single the “Silhouettes,” which became the No. 1 most-played track on Sirius XM’s Alt Nation for four months straight.
They saw continued success with their album Only the Lonely in 2017, which paid tribute to the vintage sounds of Roy Orbison and the Beach Boys and featured “You Know It,” the surf-rock hit that went viral on TikTok. The track has amassed over 100 million streams to date, and was also featured as the soundtrack to Samsung Mobile’s nationwide ad campaign.
In January of 2020, the band released Leave What’s Lost Behind, and completed half of their 40-city headline tour before the pandemic forced them to pause. They found different ways to continue to create, producing and directing a full-length feature film, Everybody’s Looking For Some Light, which was an official selection at the Nashville and Knoxville Film Festivals.
Chapman and the band have had major sync placements in advertisements for Toyota, Samsung, JetBlue and T-Mobile. Colony House’s fourth album, The Cannonballers, debuted in February. In that same month, they kicked off their “Cannonballers Tour” to a sold-out audience at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, and will be performing at Bonnaroo this June.
“We are so excited to bring Caleb on to the Concord roster,” says Melissa Spillman, VP A&R at Concord Music Publishing in Nashville. “His artistry and vision to grow his music is a perfect fit for our culture. Over the last ten years, Colony House has amassed a growing fanbase and an impressive catalog of hits and sync placements, and we look forward to helping Caleb continue to develop his career with us at Concord.”
“I have so much respect for Concord and the incredible work they do on behalf of their songwriters,” says Chapman. “I am passionate about telling stories with songs and connecting with people through music and it’s a true gift when you find people who share in that passion and are willing to come along side you to help tell those stories. I know I am the new kid on the ‘Concord block,’ but it already feels like family here!”
