Sam Chapman- Keyboards
Sam has been involved in the music industry for many years. At just 17 he was fortunate enough to sign a
major record deal with RCA (Sony/BMG).Sam was a keyboard player in the 90s TV boy-band North & South
and has extensive experience in the studio and on stage. North & South were a modern day equivalent of
the 1960s chart toppers The Monkees and formed a central role in the BBC childrens TV comedy show No
Sweat. The show followed the exploits of struggling boy band North & South consisting of Jimmy, Greg,
Miles and Giles (played by Sam Chapman).
However the band became so popular that they became a real life band who scored four top 40 hits within
just 12 month including an impressive number 7 debut hit single Im A Man Not A Boy in May 1997. The
band also headlined the own UK tour and supported Mark Owen of Take That on his European Tour.
Sam has now left his Top of The Pops and MTV days behind him in order to pursue a teaching career in
music but still loves producing music and playing live.

accumulating some admirable credits for his musical CV. Tom currently drums for the Wild Boys, The Look
