I am a clean-cut, respectful, average, law abiding middle-aged Canadian ----yes, so what the heck am I doing writing, recording, and producing rock music? In many ways I am actually quite an anomaly as I do not fit the stereotypical rocker image at all. I went to university and earned my BA and then my MA and now work a great day job in a local university. I got married and have raised two awesome boys. But, I have had a passion for songwriting ever since I wrote my first song at 14 and have never left that passion alone. I 've played in bands and done the whole bar band thing, with quite a few interesting and funny stories to show for it. I've recorded many songs and released a few albums and songs to mild success ... all except one, my Christmas cover song "Snow Miser vs Heat Miser." That song has taken off over the last few years. So much so, that I actually had an epiphany about 2 years ago. I looked in the mirror and said to myself, "Rich, why are you not really and truly going after your music dream?" I didn't have an answer for myself, so I made the decision right then and there to go after it. I now am actively releasing albums and singles, with my latest two singles, "I'm So Tired" and "Sorry Isn't Good Enough" starting to make real headway around the globe. If you Google my name today, all kinds of websites will come up. If you had done the same two years ago, you would have gotten one post that said what department I was employed at in the university I work at. You're never too old to chase a dream, I figure!
"It hasn’t been too long since we last covered Rich Chambers on his single “I’m So Tired”, which makes us even more thankful that there’s more music for the soul that’s seen the light of day. On Rich’s newest, “Sorry Isn’t Good Enough”, he’s evoked seriously nostalgic and vintage vibes that have transported us musically to a different time. We’ve instantly fallen in love with this music." --We Write About Music June 3, 2021 https://www.wewriteaboutmusic.com/reviews/rich-chambers-sorry-isnt-good-enough?fbclid=IwAR36hyuQsNCotyhhY0EJCxqO1Vjy5T47SAgVwOjdqvxAb2XKkMnlq58H-OE14 June 2021
“High-powered from the first outset, ‘I’m So Tired’ is a guitar-driven blast of 60s-esque rock and roll.” -- The Other Side Reviews Feb 8, 2021 https://www.theothersidereviews.com/rich-chambers-im-so-tired-2021/?fbclid=IwAR3WOtOJx3HYjfUo2OYBC8PEI1yzYeVgBvZbtWONcUQQ_vDjIRyT5AKd3ew14 June 2021
