From June 29, 1971 until July 16, 1981 Harry Chapin played an unsurpassable number of concerts touting his epic story songs to legions of loyal music fans in North America and Europe. The music was for a purpose and the message was best summed up as… everyone has a story. Potent Voices has a story too. It began over 12 years ago when Jeff Espenshade, songwriter, classical guitarist, and lifelong Chapin fan was listening to the recently released “Live @ the Bottom Line” cd and found out that Harry Chapin and the first incarnation of his band were playing their first concert on the same day that he was born. Jeff began playing Harry’s music every year on his birthday and when applicable contributing the money to WHY Hunger, the charitable foundation started by Harry. 2015 brings about the union of the members of Potent Voices with Harry Chapin’s original drummer Howard Fields and Scott Sivakoff who has collaborated musically with Howard as well as Harry’s brothers and band mates Tom & Steve Chapin. While all members work on other projects musically the intent is to perform the best evening of music since Harry was alive and touring himself. After the success of the single “Cat’s In the Cradle” in 1975 Harry’s touring band changed from a 4-piece acoustic band to a 6-piece band, adding Steve Chapin on keyboards and Howie Fields on drums. Howie remained his only drummer until Harry's final concert in 1981. Apart from 900-plus Chapin concerts, he also played drums on Harry's last 6 LPs including the platinum "Greatest Stories Live". Additionally Howard performed with Harry on numerous TV shows including "The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson", "The Midnight Special", "The Merv Griffin Show", "The Mike Douglas Show", and England's "The Old Grey Whistle Test".
