The Sam Chase & The Untraditional
The Sam Chase & The Untraditional
The Sam Chase has a voice like a Nun on the lam with a mouthful cigarettes and curse words in a lonely bar, drunkenly dancing next to a broken jukebox. His songs are scribbled, not written, on lipstick and sweat stained motel bedsheets because he likes the way the ink bleeds. His guitar runs on diesel and leaks like the morning after too much Whiskey. His is a show you'll probably want to tattoo on your body so everyone will know that you knew him before he was cool. He began to write music at the age of 14. He still has every scrap of paper he scribbled his terrible lyrics on and on occasion can even recall the infantile melodies and riffs that accompanied them.

In 2012, the world was gifted the release of his long awaited first studio album, THE SAM CHASE WILL LEAD US TO VICTORY. Its aim is to blow your mind. Its goal is world peace, where everyone wins, where victory is a basic human right. If all goes according to plan, The Sam Chase will lead you there.

THE SAM CHASE has had the honor to share the stage with some incredible acts such as: k.d.lang and the Sis Boom Bang, Justin Townes Earle, Lucinda Williams, Poor Man's Whiskey, Herman Dune, The Brothers Comatose, and many more. He sees every stage, any raised surface, or any plot of land as a challenge to conquer it, and win the audience over. THE SAM CHASE is coming for the glory.
Ezra Bell
Ezra Bell
Ezra Bell is an eight-headed, 16-armed amorphous folk monster juggling instruments your grandfather knows and playing original tunes that are modern yet as familiar as the ghosts in a 100-year-old mansion. Heralding from Portland, OR, Ezra Bell produced their debut EP, “Don’t All Look Up At Once,” in December of 2013. The band can be found busking on streets, in parks, and along the waterfront of Portland in addition to playing gigs throughout the Northwest. Ezra Bell will hit the studio this fall to record a full LP.
David Jacobs-Strain
David Jacobs-Strain
A fierce slide guitar player, David Jacobs-Strain is known for both his virtuosity and spirit of emotional abandon. With something for everyone, his live show moves from subversive blues to delicate balladry and then swings back to swampy rock n' roll. David will perform an acoustic duo set with Bob Beach.
