John Chaney III

I'm a native of Louisville, KY (USA). I like to exhault the Lord, the Son and the Holy Spirit in my music. I was saved in 1997 after college, but I only devoted my music to God in December of 2018. At the time, the genre switch from secular to Christian was a risk. I had moved to Nashville to make it in music. I had been aggressively touting my album every day. But I had written a song in 2005 that came back to my memory, "Talkin Bout Jesus". I realized that if I did this song, it would polarize me against many secular listeners. I decided to do it anyway because I was tired of putting my faith in a different box than where my earthly treasure was, music.

I worked on that single, and had another idea as it awaited release. I could hear a punk rock version of a Catholic hymn in my mind, the Michael Joncas classic "On Eagle's Wings". I secured the rights, recorded it, and it actually released before "Talkin Bout Jesus".

During this time and in the previous six months, I'd been playing many open stages in Louisville and my new home, Nashville. I got to meet and play with local legend open mic host Cody Bottoms, who had been at the Cafe Coco for 16 years. I made all of the rounds at open mics in Nashville. I played every notable open stage, including Springwater, The Commodore Grille, The Bowery Vault, Skully's, Tennessee Brew Works, Belcourt Taps, and a few others.

Into the Spring of 2019, the Lord open the gates of creativity for me. I wrote about 60 songs, keeping about 52 of them, and many more ideas in voice files. After I switched to praise and worship, God continued to give me music. The first song was "Big God", followed by "In Every Trace".

I am also a published author with 5 books available on Amazon. I host a daily podcast where we read through the New Testament in order over the course of the year. It's called the Chaney Today Bible Study Podcast and it is available on Soundcloud. I can be reached through my website, also where there is more bio info.
