ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Teenager, multi-talented singer, songwriter Chase Walsh is currently a High School student in Frankfort Illinois in the Chicago’s southwest suburbs. Chase has been described as "an old soul with fresh ideas, and a passion beyond his years."

His musical career started at age 5 under the tutelage of his uncle, Kevin Walsh, a respected musician in Milwaukee. In fact, Chase’s first song, Song for my Uncle, was written after the unexpected passing of Kevin when Chase was just 10 years old. Today, Chase’s home studio proudly displays his uncles Rat Fink Stratocaster and Western applique Yamaha acoustic guitars.

“While my life is full of positive influences, inspiritive teachers, good friends and family, this was the first loss of someone so close and the emotions I experienced at that point of my life encouraged me to create a lasting melody in his honor,” Chase said. “From that point on, I used everyday life experiences to craft my ideas for my lyrics and music.”

Since then, he has been tutored by many local musicians, but in 2011, a family friend suggested local music legend, Kev Wright to challenge Chase’s pursuit of guitar and the rest is history.

Chase and Kev, lead guitarist, singer and songwriter of the Righteous Hillbillies, have formed the undeniable bond that has helped Chase continually develop his craft and inspired the release of his studio EP, Your Friend the Robber. It includes 6 new original releases and be out in the Spring of 2014.

“Not only is he a talented musician, he is my friend, and my mentor. He believes in my abilities and my message. He is a true inspiration,” Chase says of his teacher.

A true student of his profession, Chase’s ambitions have lead him down the wondrous path of a multi-instrument musician. His musical talents now include, acoustic and electric guitar, mandolin, ukulele, banjo, piano, and drums. And, after being recruited by the High School Strings Orchestra, he is now studying violin, cello, and upright string bass. “Training with the orchestra has opened my eyes to the fascinating world of Classical music and I find ways to adopt those unique sounds into my more core contemporary melodies,” Chase adds.

Chase already has an amazing fan base both locally and throughout the world. With over 35,000 followers on the popular video app, Vine, where Chase releases both original and cover musical shorts. Capitalizing on the success of this popular multimedia tool, and has also utilized social media to grow his fan base on Twitter and Instagram. Also, shooting of several new music videos for release on You Tube, will coincide with the release of Robber.

Chase’s vision for his own original tunes stem from classic songwriters like Johnny Cash, Bob Dylan, and Jimi Hendrix while incorporating the Pop-Punk Acoustic styles of Never Shout Never, The Maine, and Jack White. His on stage performances can best be described as a perfectly engaged composition of modern day originals with a timeworn “James Dean” coolness.

Chase has performed live to large audiences at Chicago Street Pub in Joliet, The Barn in Manhattan, Tribes AleHouse in Mokena and Lincolnway East and North High Schools, as well as several local open mic venues.

In addition to his musical endeavors, Chase is also active in sports, and cherishes his time with family and friends and never passes up an opportunity to get their input on his latest songs and ideas. He also loves drawing, designing his own album covers, and writes poetry and short stories.
