***LAUNCHING JULY 2017***
We are Carol Hodge and Simon Wells and we make music. Chopback is the name of our brand new independent record label, a home for the music we create, as solo artists and together.

If you add up the time we've both been making music, it comes to over half a century, which makes us feel very old. We like to think that in this time we've got quite good at it.

The music we make is always honest, sometimes raw, hopefully powerful and powerfully hopeful. We believe that, without music and artistic endeavours generally, the world would be a much poorer place. Music is cultural, spiritual and unifying. It helps us weather the storm. It helps us dance in the rain.

We love listening to a song and feeling that pang of recognition, that moment of knowing the writer or performer understands how we feel. For us, this is worth more than money can buy. But we all need money to survive, to keep food on the table and a roof over our heads. Good music takes time and effort to craft, it doesn't just magically happen in a spare 10 minutes after working 9 to 5 every day. We can't thank people enough for their support, be it buying our music, coming to gigs, or messaging us and making personal contact.
