Chad and Jeremy was a singing folk rock duo in the 1960s, comprising Chad Stuart (born David Stuart Chadwick, 10 December 1941, Windermere, Cumbria) and Jeremy Clyde (born Michael Thomas Jeremy Clyde, 22 March 1941, Dorney, Buckinghamshire). They were part of the British Invasion, a large influx of British rock and pop musicians to the American music scene.
The duo's first single, "Yesterday's Gone", was their only UK hit. However, Chad and Jeremy's strings-backed sound held a greater appeal in United States, where they benefitted from an early 1960s strain of commercial folk music. Their second single, "A Summer Song", hit #7 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1964. Follow-ups "Willow Weep for Me" (a 1930s song that was recorded by Paul Whiteman, Billie Holiday and others; Chad & Jeremy's cover version went #1 on the Easy Listening chart) and "Before and After" reached the Top 20, and altogether Chad and Jeremy had seven U.S. Top 40 hits during 1964-66.
