At an early age, Chapman had already found her calling as a musician. She began by writing poetry, and then at the age of eight she received her first guitar as a gift from her mother. Chapman quickly progressed with the guitar and also learned to play the ukulele and the piano. Her initial interest in poetry developed into a talent for writing her own music.
It was during her time at college that Tracy Chapman’s interest in folk rock and singer-songwriters was forged. After hearing a set of demo tapes Chapman had recorded at the local college radio station, an impressed classmate, Brian Koppelman, recommended her to his father Charles, Koppelman, who was head of SBK Publishing. Chapman signed with SBK in 1986 and through them secured a management contract with Elliot Roberts, who was well-known for his work with Neil Young and Joni Mitchell.
