Jen Chapin Performs at UCSF

Thursday, June 27
4 p.m.
Millberry Union Event and Meeting Center
500 Parnassus Ave.

To register for the concert on June 27, go to the MyFamily website.

The daughter of singer-songwriter Harry Chapin and Sandra Chapin, Chapin's songs tell stories that search for meaning and feature the funk and improvisation of Brooklyn, New York, the city in which she is based.

Chapin has performed on stage with Bruce Springsteen, has opened for Bruce Hornsby, Smokey Robinson and the Neville Brothers. Her just-released EP, Reckoning, recorded with five-time Grammy Award winning engineer and producer Kevin Killen, includes themes of parenting, balancing work and family and motherhood.

Critics have hailed her work as "brilliant... soulfully poetic" by NPR, "thoughtful... worth savoring" by People magazine, and "addictive" by the Boston Globe.

The UCSF concert is slated for 4 p.m. on Thursday, June 27, in the Millberry Union Event and Meeting Center. The event is presented by the Chancellor's Advisory Committee on the Status of Women, Campus Life Services and the Office of Diversity and Outreach. A reception will follow the concert.

Reckoning is now available on iTunes.
