Chuck Cheesman's latest collection of original songs Imagining Dancers blends contemporary folk and Americana rock to make a very personal statement exploring the parallel themes of enduring love and hope in the face of modern pressures. With help from producer Larry Clyman (Big Shoulders, Sons of the Never Wrong, Nancy Walker) Chuck has found a wider sonic playing field on this release. Tracks range from solo performances to full rock ensemble treatments. Chuck's folk roots are still planted firmly in the earth, but there is undoubtedly a new energy and sense of urgency to be found on Imagining Dancers.
Chuck Cheesman is a former instructor at Chicago's Old Town School of Folk Music. His previous recordings include Coming Home (2001) and the self-produced Campfire (2006).
Chuck puts in equal time as a children's music educator and performer. His latest children's release Dancing With No Shoes On showcases a very different side to his songwriting, and it is a collection of music that will have people of all ages singing, dancing, and laughing.
