A Soul-Stirring Voyage through Resilience, Love, and Magic – Tommy Chappell Presents “Seven Eleven” Press Release

Authentic, moving, and transcendental, Tommy Chappell’s timeless new album “Seven Eleven” is one for the times

west babylon, NY —–‘Seven Eleven’- released on November 7, 2023- marks Tommy’s fourth indie album release, following a collaborative trilogy with his late wife and musical partner, Trish Chappell. Tragically, Trish succumbed to brain cancer in 2016, making this album a deeply personal and special dedication to her memory, fueled by her enduring spirit.

Featuring an ensemble of gifted musicians and singers, including Danny Kean, Debbie Knapper, Monet Dunham, Noret Bazemore, and Jerome Lee, ‘Seven Eleven’ captures the essence of Tommy’s musical influences—from the funky vibes of Sly Stone to the storytelling prowess of Bobby Womack and the genre-defying creativity of Prince.

Rooted in the eclectic genres of soul, R&B, and dance music, the album presents an energetic, funky, and inspirational exploration of life’s highs and lows. ‘Seven Eleven’ is a sonic voyage, seamlessly blending the soulful sounds of the seventies with a contemporary twist. Each track on the album carries the unmistakable mark of Tommy’s unique musical identity—unapologetic, uplifting, and pulsating with emotion.

With hit albums like “Sweet Like Honey,” “Something Good,” and “Don’t Let Go,” Tommy has consistently delivered music that resonates across audiences. Tommy’s intention is clear—to create a record that not only entertains but uplifts. With a musical style inspired by legends like Sly Stone, EWF, Prince, and more, Tommy’s storytelling and vocal delivery are nothing short of a revelation.

The album is a testament to Tommy’s belief that music should be a source of joy, the album exudes the “Trish effect”—a feel-good space that reverberates through every note.

Tommy’s extensive background as a musician, singer, songwriter, and producer is evident in the album’s rich textures and nuanced arrangements. His collaboration with esteemed director Joseph H. James Jr. resulted in three captivating videos for the album, adding a visual dimension to the auditory delight.

As Tommy embarks on this musical journey, he invites listeners to celebrate life and stream new record ‘Seven Eleven’ on his official music streaming platforms! 1hr Spotlight March 23, 2023 @8pm EST click the above image to join us

Tn'T - "Don't Let Go"(Mind Expanding Soul/ Tn'T is an acronym. It stands for Tom and Trish. On one hand, the two of them are the antithesis of the stereotypes that surround our media driven view of what modern relationships are all about. They are a married couple who have been so for many years. On the other hand their reality has nothing to do with "stereotypes." Their reality is the same as it is for the rest of us. It's a series of ups and downs, good days, bad days, that observed in a vacuum seem to be pretty dull/boring. However obsevered in all of it's multi-dimensional totality represents all that is truly good and important in life. Understanding this requires something called "maturity," and the failure to acknowledge the appropriate level of importance leads to being unhappy.That is what the music of Tom n' Trish is about. These are the issues concerns that they try to highlight. It's important for all of us to try to consider these things, because at the end of the day it's really all about how we treat other people. And what you give is truly what you get back! That is the "mind expanding" part, it's taking the simple things that we have all been taught (and seemingly have forgotten) and using them as tools to solve the world of complexity that we deal with on an individual basis. Given that we have an understanding that this is going to be the subject matter of just about any album by Tom n' Trish, what is it about. And the manner in which they deal with that subject matter is a big part of what makes this album compelling. The other part is about the "monster groove." As a lifetime funk music fan I am always looking for that groove. As a New Yorker, I know that when that groove is laid down just right, that FUNK becomes something that I find it impossible to let go of. That is what I heard from start to finish. That's what made me listen to the whole album. That's what made me pay attention to the lyrics and ultimately the message that Tom n' Trish were trying to tell me. As a music critic, I know that people for whatever reasons are very much concerned with musical styles. I would like to suggest to you that if you like the slow burning mid tempo funky groove of artists such as Sly Stone and Prince that you will like this album. If you like classic slow jams, then you will like this album. If you like to go out on Friday Saturday nights to nightclubs and get all sweaty on a dance floor or even if you just like to stay at home and "dance in the dark," you wil ldig this album. And if you like any of the above done with a smile, then you will dig this album. However as a human being, if you find the discussion of life's up's and downs to be of interest, then you will find Tom n' Trish's funk-d-fied presentation of the good, the bad the ugly to be quite compelling!!! My advice to you if you are reading this is to go ahead and give this album a shot, when it is released on 7/11, who knows, you might just get lucky by taking that shot!!!
