Jim Chaps

American folksinger Jim Chaps carves an intriguing niche in today’s music by making new songs from classic, culturally iconic poems and verse.
Jim has recorded four solo projects, most recently UNHINGED (2017) which features Peace Foals on their highly regarded song "Sending Love." Jim started singing his original works during the 1970's - at age 18. Jim performed at The Hinge a college coffeehouse held in the home of auto pioneer Henry Ford in Dearborn. Perhaps the biggest discovery was Jim finding The Star-Spangled Banner's Fifth Verse. "I was shocked. I knew the song as well as anyone in music. I memorized and recorded all four verses... we were taught that there were only the four verses. I found that the poet Oliver Wendell-Holmes wrote a concluding verse in the era of The Civil War. It is an important verse - especially in light of some people saying currently - and WRONGLY - that the song itself should be disregarded! Good people, bravely stood against tyranny, died fighting for liberty, justice and to truly make and keep America the land of the free for everyone. It's misleading and/or gullible to suggest the song is hateful."
