CINCO – Chapell (aka Alan Chapell) (as told by Mr. Bones)

With his intriguing vocal styling supported by an infectious mix of piano, violin and horns, Alan Chapell’s CINCO presents a quintessential college radio sound. In it he offers up a 21st century pop style by masterfully integrating funk, jazz and a bit of Latin styling. What’s more, he is a masterful story teller, whether contemplating a friend’s job loss in Shout It, to the impacts of social media on the national psyche in Spin (his side gig is as an internet privacy attorney).

RIYL: Beatles, REM
