"One mean, gun-slinging power trio" - Drum media
"The blues had a baby and they named it rock and roll" - So sang Muddy Waters in 1977, and once upon a time it used to be common for hard rocking bands to emerge from the blues scene; everyone from The Stones, Cream and Led Zeppelin cut their teeth on a 12-bar. Chase The Sun is one Australian band with its roots in the blues scene who, since forming in 2007, have been letting their love of rock and roll fully hang out, infusing their take on the blues with loud guitar, blazing hard funk and a cranking 70's southern rock feel.
The music of Chase The Sun features the powerhouse delivery of guitarist Jan Rynsaardt and soul-tinged song writing combined with elements of acoustic blues and Stevie Ray Vaughn boogie - this three-piece crank out a new take on a classic sound. Chase The Sun's constantly touring road show has seen them smash every major local Blues Festival over the past couple of years including Byron Bay's Bluesfest (2010, 2009); take out top honours in the Australian Blues and Music Oz Awards; debut on the U.S. Billboard Charts at #13 and release two albums in Japan through P-Vine Records.
