Local Starkville, Mississippi band Law of Nature consists of Jennifer Knight (lead vocal), Chapman Welch (guitar and organ), David Strickland (drums), and Karen Estill (bass, back-up and lead vocal). On April 2, 1997, they came to talk to Starkville High School students in Mrs. Nancy Jacobs’s junior English class and Mrs. Frances McCarty’s Mississippi Writers class. Mrs. Jacobs’s student teacher at the time, , Mrs. Georgia Hackney, invited Law of Nature. They graciously answered questions from the students and sang several favorites written by members of the group which have been recorded on their two CD’s Four Points in the Valley and More. Although their CD’s are still available, the group is no longer together. Chapman Welch plays regularly at the Dark Horse in Starkville while he finishes his degree at Mississippi State University.
UPDATE 2016: The band currently lives in Houston, TX. Members include Chapman Welch—guitars, vocals, keyboards, bass, programming; Jennifer Welch—vocals; Andy Sherman—bass ; Michael McGrath—drums. Jennifer and Chapman are married.
