CHASE THE SUN
Special Guests Cass Eager & The Velvet Rope
KATOOMBA RSL CLUB
86 Lurline St, Katoomba, Blue Mountains, Australia
Chase The Sun is an Australian band with it’s roots in the blues scene who are 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.
Chase The Sun is teaming up with Cass Eager and The Velvet Rope to deliver a pretty serious tour early next year and will be performing again at the Katoomba RSL Club. You may have caught them playing at the Club’s Blues Room for the Blue Mountains Music festival in 2009 – now is your chance to enjoy a full set.
Since forming in 2006, bluesy rock trio Chase The Sun have gone hard and got a lot done in a short time, spending no time amassing widespread critical acclaim for their soul-tinged song writing, blues sensibilities and the powerhouse live delivery of guitar star-on-the-rise Jan Rynsaardt. Combining elements of old-school acoustic blues, Stevie Ray Vaughan boogie, hillbilly finger picking and Hendrix flash; three-piece Chase The Sun crank out a new take on a classic sound.
The band won the 2007 Australian Blues Award for Best Group and are establishing themselves as a must-see live act through constant touring. “You Gotta Go”, the lead track of their self-titled debut album is gaining momentum on airwaves around the world and also picked up an Australian Blues Award, winning the Title of “Best Song”.
Chase The Sun’s self-titled debut album shows off the unapologetic roots core of Rynsaardt’s writing and delivery; acoustic and dobro guitars plus brushes stand in for the Marshalls of his previous rock tour-de-force. Chase The Sun, the album, was produced by Ryan Van Gennip, mixed by David Skeet at Space Junk and was released in October 2007.
Both sides of the beast – soft and loud; sensitive and fiery – get an airing during the band’s ridiculously well received live set.
“Sometimes a trio comes along and impresses with their sheer power, dexterity and originality…This is the sort of band you can put anywhere, from beer barn to amphitheatre, and they will win people over…Chase The Sun have put their own stamp on the blues and roots genre and, quite simply, there isn’t a weak moment on their debut release” Drum Media Nov 07.
