Robert Lee Chaffee is a singer/songwriter. His musical style is Blues based Americana. However one hears folk, jazz, R&B, funk, country and other influences.
At the age of 9 Robert was shown 3 guitar chords by his neighbor in Hollywood, the legendary David Crosby. That started Robert writing, playing and singing his own songs. Since then a host of prominent artists have helped him develop. From Jimi Hendrix showing him the pentatonic scale, Steve Miller, Carlos Santana, Jesse Colin Young, Jerry Garcia, Van Dyke Parks, Lowell George, and others who recognized the special quality in Robert. Most recently he has enjoyed working with the tremendous talents of Paul Barrere of Little Feat ("the best band in the world", Mic Jagger, and Robert agrees!). Also the fabulous Jeff Pevar who co-produced and played on Robert's debut self titled CD.
On that CD 3 songs were in the top 40 and "Got the News" was #1 for five weeks in the Blues and Holiday charts of internet retail stores such as iTunes and Amazon.com. "Got the News" was also #1 new release in the UK.
With the release of his new CD "Angels, Lovers, & Lunatics" (released and distributed November 2013 by SUGO Music Group) he will be expanding his touring to include more of the USA as well as Europe in 2014. The tour in 2014 will be a mostly be a solo venture, but bandmates and friends will be joining Robert on certain legs of the tour!
He has performed with a number of different ensembles (duos to 12 piece) and they are called "Three Legged Dogg". Yes, "Robert Lee Chaffee & Three Legged Dogg" hope to be in your area soon!
Robert is now being digitally distributed by SUGO Music Group, and extremely happy to be associated with a class organization like SMG.
The live shows are awesome. He loves to share funny and unusual stories of his experiences in show biz, and after the show you'll find him hanging out among the guests talking it up. He is very personable and one of the kindest entertainers you'll ever meet.
