Osmond Chapman Orchestra

Soundhouse founder, Caleb Chapman recently teamed up with David Osmond to form the Osmond Chapman Orchestra. Chapman has made a name for himself as a GRAMMY-nominated band leader, producer, author, and respected industry executive. In the tradition of his family name, Osmond has had a successful career as a vocalist and tv personality, often appearing on national tours with his uncle and aunt, Donny and Marie. He has performed in more than 17 countries and has had three top 40 hits in the U.K. Combined with Utah’s top musical talent, the Osmond Chapman Orchestra is an unstoppable force and Utah’s best shot at national recognition for a local act.

The industry recognizes this, and it was no surprise when the band recently signed a major label deal with Club44 Records out of Nashville. The label will be overseeing the release of band’s debut album, “There’s More Where That Came From” in June 2021 with distribution through Universal Music Group. The album features originals penned by the band’s leaders as well as original arrangements of classics designed to feature the incredible talents of the world-class band comprised of Utah’s top talent as well as Rashawn Ross of the Dave Matthews Band, Karl Hunter of Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, and 3-time GRAMMY-winner Jeff Coffin also of the Dave Matthews Band.

The album also features amazing performances from an army of Soundhouse graduates including Porter Chapman, Tyler Webb, Austie Robinson, Peyton Wong, Trent Reimschussel, Jonny Stallings, Evan Wharton, Kya Karine, Jackson Jenkins, and Steve Ramos. Additionally, Osmond’s vocals for the album were produced by Soundhouse Artistic Director, Jenny Jordan
