New Music 2020
The latest single “Every Step” is hands down, what I would consider, my best effort to date as a songwriter. Every Step has a very special meaning to me, however when I was writing it, it inadvertently took a turn and ended up having a flow that could lyrically bring meaning to anyone who listens. It evokes a particular response that is one of love and perseverance. Special thanks go to Chris Raspante who edited, mixed and mastered the recording.
The single “Like a Stone” an acoustic take on the original Audioslave track is now available for purchase on iTunes and Amazon and streaming on Spotify, Pandora and YouTube.
For more than 20 years, Chance has been writing and playing original music as well as entertaining people from all over the state of Texas with an eclectic blend of acoustic rock that spans genres from classic to alternative sounds. Originally from El Paso, Texas, Chance moved to North Texas where in late nineties he began recording and subsequently performing his songs live to audiences from all over the state.
Playing with bands such as Last Call, Strange Brew, Bad Karma, AcousticKarma with Delta Rage guitarist Ryan Cassidy, and currently with Red Dirt Outlaws, they have helped shape Chance as an emerging artist as well as brought a new wave of inspiration and desire to release new material. Singing is his primary role, but he brings a unique, somewhat unfinished approach to the guitar giving his music a feeling of raw energy and passion.
Drawing influences from bands such as Pink Floyd, Matchbox 20, Counting Crows and Jackopierce, Chance continues to write music that not only tells a story but also elicits an energy that, “just makes you feel good.”
Currently, Chance is the lead vocalist for Bad Karma, considered one of the best classic/alternative rock cover bands in North Texas, and is also the lead vocalist and rhythm guitarist for Red Dirt Outlaws, an emerging Southern Rock/Country band formed in 2019, with a new album coming in the Summer of 2020 titled, “Shift Into Southern.”
