Jen Chapin's Reckoning

As the daughter of late folk legend Harry Chapin, it's not surprising that Jen Chapin has taken so naturally to intricate storytelling through song. Described as "urban folk soul," Chapin's music is inspired by her father's singer-songwriter-folk roots while incorporating her own brand of funk.

Chapin's sixth studio album, Reckoning, is her first since starting a family with her husband/bassist Stephan Crump, which now includes sons Maceo, 7, and Van, 3. The three are Chapin's primary focus on Reckoning, particularly in the album's lead single, "Go Away."

As Chapin wrote in American Songwriter, "Go Away" is about the "adolescence of babyhood," dealing with the irrational temper tantrums of toddlers and finding a new appreciation for time alone. Watch the video for "Go Away" below:

Reckoning is now available on iTunes.
