Chapter II is a group of three young but ambitious musicians driven by their passion for creating and sharing music. Previously members of a locally successful group called Random Sound, the three teenagers have been playing together for five years. The band from Ashland, Oregon is composed of Tejas on guitar, bass, and vocals, Cole Coster on drums, and Nick Chouard on lead vocals, bass, and keyboard.
The group pulls from a wide variety of influences to create a unique alternative rock sound. Some of their influences include the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Sublime, Coldplay, and the Dave Matthews Band.
As a part of Random Sound, the band won Southern Oregon’s Got Talent in 2010. Following their first large success, they built a strong fan base and began to play larger shows. In 2011/12 they landed a spot at Ashland’s OSF Green Show, Medford Summer Concert Series and opened for Chris Isaak on the Table Rock Stage at the Britt Festival in Jacksonville, OR. In October they returned to Southern Oregon’s Got Talent and performed their first original song “Paper Boy.” As the band began to mature they lost a member and are now called Chapter II. In the summer of 2012 Chapter II recorded their first EP, Danger Games, featuring six original songs. They released the EP at their second Green Show in 2012.
