Chad Stokes Urmston
Musician, State Radio and Dispatch, and Co-Founder of humanitarian group Calling All Crows.
Chad Stokes Urmston grew up in Sherborn, Massachusetts, became a pacifist through his time spent at The Peace Abbey, and chose to spend his "gap year" after high school living and working in Zimbabwe. During the summers, he worked as a counselor at Camp Jabberwocky, a camp on Martha's Vineyard for adults with disabilities and the launching pad for the once-underground and now-MTV sensation that is How's Your News?. Chad left college to pursue an independent music career with the bands Dispatch and State Radio. A founding member of the Elias Fund, the Dispatch Foundation, and now Calling All Crows, Chad was recently honored as Humanitarian of the Year by the Boston Music Awards. He remains a committed activist, passionate about inspiring the live music community to invest their time and energy toward public service and humanitarian causes. In his spare time, Chad can be found playing pond hockey, hopping trains, and hanging with his dog Lefty.
