Chevy Chase Stole My Wife are a pop-rock band from Worcester.
They play melodic, catchy and gritty original songs with witty and wry lyrics about everything from rollercoasters to getting cat-called by van drivers. Audiences are always left with a smile on their face, and with earworm choruses ringing in their ears!
Lead singer Emma Howett has a degree in Pop Music and Music Production (yes, really) and spends most of her time writing songs for Chevy Chase Stole My Wife, acoustic act Fix Me Margo, and also writing and producing her solo material. In 2019 she released an album and a single ‘I’ll Do My Own Stunts’ which won a prize in the HOFA song contest.
Lead guitarist Stu Silcock (‘the best guitarist in Worcester’) brings his own style of slick, bluesy playing to the band. He makes up for his quiet demeanour with jaw dropping solos that stop you in your tracks. Stu and Emma have worked on music together for many years and it’s fair to say that their differing styles make the CCSMW sound so distinctive. Drummer Neil Burton is a powerhouse of rhythm who is never one to rest on his laurels, constantly pushing himself to find the best beats and fills for Chevy songs.
Bass player Jamie Raynor is the newest member of CCSMW, but he’s slotted right in with the group. He studied bass at BIMM Bristol and has inspirations from jazz to rock to metal. He also plays in Get Down Colossus and ULTRAMEGAOK.
The band started life as a fun side project in 2013, however as their fan base has grown CCSMW has taken on a life of its own. In the first week of 2020 the band set to work on recording a set of 4 singles, the first of which - ‘Swayed’ - wasreleased on 1st March. They are looking to grow their fanbase and expand their reach - and bring music that they really believe in to audiences and music lovers all over the world.
