Beginning as a moniker for Shaun Paul's intimate bedroom melodies, Chaperone has swelled into a full-time quintet. A melding of several different eras of music, the Chicago band's sound is a jangly 21st-century version of yesteryear's radio rock. Sing-along harmonies and raucous percussion laced over driving bass lines give the group its expansive sound. Their unique songs and impassioned live act have generated a growing buzz in the Midwest with each performance. Chaperone spent much of 2009 recording, writing and fine-tuning their set, but 2010 brought their second visit to SXSW Music festival, infinite touring and an upcoming e.p....thus far.
