He began writing some new songs and was performing live by the beginning of 2015. At a radio gig in March, he suddenly had a debilitating headache and blacked out a few minutes before going on air. About a week later, he came to in the hospital and learned that he had had a stroke. An AVM/aneurysm had burst near the speech center in his brain, and he would need surgery, speech rehab, and physical therapy to recover. Following several weeks in the hospital and rehab, he was lucky enough to receive brain surgery, and it was a complete success.
As the year came to a close, he launched a Kickstarter to help him record his second EP, entitled Starting Over. Released in 2016, the EP is a collection of sketches about a 20-something year old kid from North Carolina figuring out life and love in New York City - from remembering an old friend when you just need to see a familiar face, to trying to find the words to tell someone how much you love them.
Since its release, Chambers has performed in the Emerging Artist Showcase at Blast On The Bay 2016 in Florida and has most recently played as a Top 10 finalist in the Wildflower Arts & Music Festival 2017 in Texas. In the meantime, he has continued to play concerts in and around Nashville while also writing songs with several writers in the city.
