Among young artists on the music scene today, Chase Kroesche (pronounced Kro-sha) is especially unique. Currently living in Los Angeles, CA, 19-year-old singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist has just unleashed the pop gem "1-2-3," his first major single release. As an early teen, he was a nationally ranked tennis player and fenced, but, by age 13, he'd taken that focus, passion and intense practice schedule to music ("I traded tennis strings for guitar strings," he jokes).
His hard work led to a scholarship at Boston's prestigious Berklee College of Music; touring by the age of 14; awards at the Peaks Jazz Festival in his native Utah; gigs at L.A.'s infamous Whisky; and performances with Frank Zappa saxophonist Napoleon Murphy Brock and David Bowie guitarist Earl Slick -- not bad for a high school kid.
Now, even as he works toward his degree in Popular Music from the USC Thornton School of Music, Chase is embarking on yet another exciting new chapter, thanks to the winter 2012-2013 release of "1-2-3" and, in 2013, his follow-up EP, featuring "Satellite," a collaboration with hit producer/songwriter Brian Howes (Nickelback; Daughtry).
As he notes, "I'm ambitious, and a very disciplined, no-nonsense person. That doesn't make me sound very fun, but really, the reason I listen to music is to have fun, so, when I write music, that's what it's about; it's not about telling people how bad I feel, or being sad, pissed and lonely and upset with the world. I write to make people - and me - feel happy."
