Chad & Jeremy
From 1964 to 1968, Chad & Jeremy had eleven hit US singles and released seven classic albums. At the end of the 1960s, they went their separate ways – Jeremy returning to London to become an actor on the stage and screen; Chad pursuing a career behind the scenes in the music business. In the last decade, the reunited duo have been thrilling audiences across the globe with their unique mixture of hits and wit.
Chad Stuart and Jeremy Clyde met at drama school in 1960, and were playing a small folk club in London when they were discovered by famed movie composer John Barry. They became a sensation in America by riding the wave of the British Invasion, chalking up seven Top 40 hits including “A Summer Song”, “Yesterday’s Gone”, “Willow Weep for Me”, and “Distant Shores”. The duo appeared in legendary TV shows including The Dick Van Dyke Show, The Patty Duke Show, Batman and Laredo. They hosted Hullabaloo, appeared on The Tonight Show and countless others.
The most recent phase in their career began in 2003 – the 40th anniversary of their first record release – when they reunited for a PBS TV music special. Since then they have performed their two-man show all over the United States, Canada, Hawaii and the Philippines – playing to sold out crowds who flock to hear the harmonies and the humor. They continue to record and release new material, including ARK-eology and their first ever live album, entitled Reflection. In recent years Chad & Jeremy have appeared in two PBS TV specials, and Jeremy Clyde has featured on the West End stage in the award-winning dramatic play Three Days In May. Jeremy has also recently appeared in the Emmy winning UK drama Downton Abbey and the Academy Award winning film The Iron Lady. In 2014 Jeremy began his own solo career, releasing his first album entitled The Bottom Drawer Sessions, No. 1. Meanwhile, Chad has branched out on his own with a solo tour and has released a series of children’s CDs. Their music has recently featured on Mad Men and in the Men In Black III film.
After more than fifty years together, Chad & Jeremy are as compelling today as they were in the 1960s
