Chimpanbee are essentially a trio of musicians and songwriters , namely Mike Fox on Drums and percussion Paul Barry on Bass and Ger Reid the songwriter , guitar player and vocalist.
An eclectic fellowship with dreams and ambitions of being the next great rock band.
The band recently released a debut album , a collection of songs that explores the cliche themes and notions of young love and how that plays out under the constraints of music life and under the influences of heavy drug taking.
The songs where wrote when we were 18 yrs old in 2008 and so we set about re-writing , re-mixing and re-recording them in 2017.
We released 'Cant Stop or Rewind' in February 2018.
We then began almost immediately to work on a second album entitled 'Perfectly out of balance'
The band were set to start touring in Ireland in 2018 when our piano player Damien O'Brien was attacked in Waterford city that July and killed.
Since then we have been exclusively writing and recording in the hopes of delivering a second record with far more ambition than the first and more in line with who and what we are now..
