Joh Chase "SOLO"

  • First pressing on Coke Bottle Clear vinyl
View Details

" impressive set of earnest, rootsy, catchy indie pop/rock that spotlights their sharp songwriting talents and deceptively expansive sound. A pure showcase of their DIY ethos that has found them opening for David Bazan and Noah Gunderson, ‘SOLO’ is a dynamic effort that feels both classic and of-the-moment as it chronicles a “lifetime of writing, losing, loving, and doing it all yourself.”

"folk-adjacent rock and storytelling prowess play equally to the head and heart, fashioning confessionals with broad appeal."
Buzzbands LA

"simmering, off-kilter art pop"
- Under The Radar

"simple raw and unhinged . . . a poetic and compelling breath of fresh air."
Glide Magazine

"Joh Chase unveils a mesmerizing sonic narrative with their latest single, “Avalanche,” skillfully intertwining elements of alt-folk and folk-pop."
- Indie Spirits

"Achingly intimate and beautifully raw"
- Atwood Magazine

"Mesmerizing, infectious, joyful, and heartbreaking; this is the best new album I've heard in a decade. Joh Chase has arrived.”
Melissa Ferrick

Career trajectories are rarely linear or make logical sense. Life is always unpredictable, so all you can do is put in good work and keep at it. Joh Chase is a testament to this. Over the past two decades, the Seattle-raised, Los Angeles-based artist has persistently honed their songwriting and toured. This dedication comes out entirely in their songs, which are so timeless, confident, and inviting they can only come from someone who’s devoted their whole life to their craft.

Chase’s musical journey has been a winding but steady evolution. While they were raised Evangelical and originally wrote songs that grappled with leaving the church, Chase found revelations in introspective songwriting. “My brain is completely filled with the music I was raised on: Elton John, The Cranberries, Bonnie Raitt, and the Mamas and the Papas,” they say. “I will always think of my music through that template while trying to find a place for myself in the world and pushing the boundaries of that.”

Chase’s new album SOLO feels like a turning point for them: it’s a testament to Chase’s do-it-yourself ethos throughout their entire career. Out now via Kill Rock Stars, SOLO gleefully bounces from sizzling blues to bedroom-recorded folk, soaring pop, and intimate indie rock, but it’s all filtered through Chase’s charming and fully-formed vision. SOLO, an artist's reinvention, a daring reintroduction for a timeless talent, is available to order now.
