Chad grew up playing music in bars. His mother had to sign permission slips
so he could play underage to drunk people who were twice his age and moshing to his music. ”It was beautiful; my heyday — I’d go back to the 90s in a heartbeat.”
Music has always been his first love, but, people grow old, people get married, have kids, bands get impractical. So now he’s recording stuff on his own. Trouble is, he was never the singer, or drummer, or album recording engineer. But he’s making the best of it alone now, and recording a few albums a year. Click here for a kind review of his grand return in February of 2012.

The ensuing songs landed Chad a dream job, when he was asked
to write lyrics for other musicians.
Here is an interview in the Scope about I’m All Yours and You’re Half Mine.
