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 released 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.
As I write this, Chadwick is gearing up to release his 2nd full length album with Swoon City (release date TBA). The batch of songs were self produced and mixed by Chadwick and were recorded in Brooklyn, NY and Santa Cruz, CA.
