Colony House        

American Indie Rock Band

Colony House is an American indie rock quartet. Their debut album, When I Was Younger, reached No. 154 on the Billboard 200 and No. 3 on the Heatseekers Albums chart. Caleb and Will Chapman began making music with friend Scott Mills in 2009, forging a bright indie rock sound influenced by alt-rock legends like U2 as well as more contemporary influences such as Cold War Kids.

Natives of Franklin, Tennessee, the band is composed of brothers Caleb Chapman (vocals) and Will Chapman (drums), and guitarist Scott Mills. Caleb and Will are the sons of contemporary Christian pop musician, Steven Curtis Chapman. The band began working together while in high school in 2009. They have described their sound as "rock n' roll" with "stripped-down instruments", influenced by U2 and Cold War Kids. Originally named Caleb, they changed the name to Colony House in 2013, after an apartment complex where they had lived. They self-released three EPs, before releasing their debut album, When I Was Younger, on July 22, 2014. The lead single from the album, "Silhouettes”, received alternative rock radio airplay, appeared on the ITunes Store Alt-Rock chart, and was the most downloaded song on SiriusXM Alt Nation. The band made their television debut on September 29, 2014 on NBC's Late Night with Seth Meyers.

Colony House toured with Needtobreathe, Ben Rector (leg 1), Switchfoot (leg2), and Drew Holcomb and the Neighbors for the 2015 "Tour De Compadres" tour. The band was joined by bassist and keyboardist Parke Avery for this tour.

In 2017, the band released their second studio album, Only the Lonely and their third album, Leave What's Lost Behind, in 2020.
