Taking a dive into Shanti Chapman’s latest single, “Joy Comes in the Morning,” it’s like soaking into a much-needed bubble bath of soulful rejuvenation. With its gospel strains pulsating right through you, it’s impossible not to feel a kind of communal warmth, the kind that stems from shared human experiences, vocalized against the societal margins we often forget.

Now, Chapman ain’t just another singer – the fella came from a time when he used to play tunes for the U.S Army. But eventually, he gave his whole dang heart to creating his brand of music.
