Chase Kroesche is a 21 year old singer-songwriter and guitarist living in Los Angeles, whose focus and passion led to a scholarship at Boston’s prestigious Berklee College of Music; touring by the age of 14; countless LA gigs; performances with Frank Zappa saxophonist Napoleon Murphy Brock and with David Bowie guitarist Earl Slick; and endorsements with major instrument manufacturers. Chase has collaborated with, among others, producer/engineer Warren Huart (Aerosmith; The Fray), producer/songwriter Brian Howes (Nickelback; Daughtry), and producer/songwriter John Alagia (John Mayer).
While Chase has led several bands (and, performing his originals, placed in the top three in a National band competition at age 17 at Downtown Disney), solo performing helped him hone his craft. “If a song can stand up with just an acoustic guitar and a voice or piano, then it’s a good song.” As for lyrics, “It’s just about making a story – fiction or truth – it’s more about believing in what you’re singing and committing to it.”
Now, thanks to the release of his 1st single, “1-2-3”, and his follow-up singles, “Love I You” and “Overgrown”, produced by Warren Huart, more music is on the way including “Satellite”, a collaboration with producer/songwriter Brian Howes, and the originals “Superhero”, “Sleep”, and “Tender”, also produced by Huart.
Born and raised in Salt Lake City, Chase forged his own path and, early on, connected with Queen. “I loved the theatrical aspects. I’ve always thought that the performance is as important as the music. If you perform really well, it’s going to excite people, but, of course, having great songs and that amazing performance is my ultimate goal.”
“We’re well into spring, and that means we’re now on the lookout for a cool, laid-back sound, and it looks like we may have found our artist! Chase Kroesche, is a 19-year-old singer and he’s fantastic when he puts a guitar in his hands. You put the two together, and it’s an unbeatable combination.” Fanlala Editorial Staff, FANLALA (April 11, 2013)
