While I truly couldn't care less what anyone thinks about my voice, I'd like to make just one comment about it. And, after having said this, I will never say another word about it again. It's not an argument; it's my opinion.
CSB is about well-written songs and great musicianship. No one in this band is trying to be the next American Idol. I am not promoting myself as a great singer. I am a songwriter and a guitarist. Rockn'roll history is full of singers who sing no better or worse than I do, and yet, they are some of the most successful artists in the past 40 years: Jimi Hendrix, Joe Cocker, Elvis Costello, Mark Knopfler, Bob Dylan, David Byrne, Billy Gibbons, Donald Fagan, Bryan Ferry, Billy Corgan, Leon Russell, Bruce Springsteen, etc.....
So in reality, I am in really great company. I mention these artists not to compare myself to any of them,
but argue that, just like them, as a singer, I am also a stylist. You either like that style or you don't.
Clearly, our 1200+ fans around the world like it.
Since I have no other voice than the one I've got, it will never change.
I will never defend the way I sound.
I'm okay with it.

"Try A Little Gray", the YouTube video/slideshow, created by NYMPA, from CSB's latest EP, "The Sound of the Chameleon", breaks 500 plays and goes viral. Thank you everyone for taking this universal message all over the world. I am grateful to call you all friends.
"The Chuck Schaeffer Band brings it, balls to bones in "The Sound of the Chameleon". And a chameleon he truly is. At first listening,
I heard ghosts; the haunting influences of Dylan, Richards, Clapton, Page (al la Yardbirds) and the jaunty pop/rock of tunesmith Elvis Costello.
Chuck Schaeffer clearly hold his own with this heady company. From the title track, "The Sound of the Chameleon", he swaggers with a tender confidence that both captivates and mystifies.
"Look No Further" is a rock and roll collision of psychedelic sounds and Schaeffer's own spin on the blues.
In "The Only Choice (The 'Bite Me' Song)", Chuck simply slams it out of the park. The lyrics are witty and insightful. Schaeffer rips with with sonic magic on his ever faithful fretboard.
"Try A Little Gray" is a call for world peace; a happy ending for this EP. Is this chameleon's cry too ideal? Perhaps; but as long a Chuck Schaeffer Band continues seeking, this artist will continue to transform and change colors. Schaeffer submerges and re-emerges, always transcending and rearranging. Chuck Schaeffer Band delivers and arrives, again and again and again."
