Stephen Chapin (B. 30 Dec 1946) is an American singer. He is best known as the youngest of the four Chapin brothers, which include Harry Chapin and Tom Chapin [1] and is son of drummer Jim Chapin. He is the uncle of Jen Chapin and The Chapin Sisters. He has toured nationally, including with his late brother and in a series of Harry Chapin tribute concerts, and has also produced his own CDs, including "The Chapin Family Christmas Collection", and has worked as a teacher, arranger, recording artist, commercial producer, singer, performer and songwriter.[2] He has appeared on albums of his brothers; most notably, Harry Chapin's Greatest Stories Live album includes his performance of his song "Let Time Go Lightly".[3]

The Steve Chapin Band includes Chapin and former Harry Chapin band members "Big John" Wallace and Howard Fields. Steve and Big John have been making music together since their boy-choir days in 1955, through the doo-wop days, folk and early rock eras, and the Harry Chapin years. It was during the mid-'70s that they teamed up with Howard to forge the musical bonds that forge the heart of their music. He is also the fifth cousin of country singer Mary Chapin Carpenter.
