Chad and Jeremy are an English folk rock duo. This duo Chad Stuart and Jeremy Clyde were born in 1941. They became a folk rock duo in the 1960's. This duo was a part of the British Invasion of the 60's. 

Chad Stuart and Jeremy Clyde met while attending the Central School of Speech and Drama. Chad taught Jeremy how to play the guitar. By 1962, they performed together as a folk duo and formed a band called The Jerks, which Chad described as "the world's screwiest rock and roll group."

The duo's first single, 1963's "Yesterday's Gone", for Ember Records label was their first UK hit. However, Chad & Jeremy's strings-backed sound held a greater appeal in the United States, where World Artists Records released their mid-1960s commercial folk music. As the duo recorded this, they developed their trademark style of singing: "whispering." 

Their second single, and biggest American hit, "A Summer Song"  hit No. 7 on the Billboard Hot 100 during the week of October 17-24 in 1964.In total Chad &

The duo also made several television guest appearances. They portrayed a fictional singing duo, "The Redcoats" (Fred and Ernie), on the 10 February 1965 episode of the sitcom Dick Van Dyke Show that satirized Beatlemania. Two songs were featured in that episode: "No Other Baby," which was sung live in the episode by the duo both sitting on top of a couple of Fender amplifiers, playing Gibson acoustic guitars; and "My, How the Time Goes By," which they introduce as a song by another British Pop Duo, "Chad & Jeremy." The following week they appeared on The Patty Duke Show

The duo appeared as themselves in the December 1966 episodes "The Cat's Meow" and "The Bat's Kow Tow" of the television series Batman. During the latter episode, they sang "Distant Shores" and "Teenage Failure".

In September 2010, Chad & Jeremy marked 50 years of performing together with a limited-edition CD entitled Fifty Years On.
