ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
While You Wait
Says Bay Chandler, "I have always wanted to be everything in my songs and on stage...in your face, on your couch, washing your dishes." And this remark-better than any bio, clearer than any photograph-explains what this thiry-something, Alabama-born singer/songwriter is all about. Not looking to become the next big thing, not attracted by the assmebly line disposable musical fads, Chandler instead has targeted the hearts and minds of regular people gamely living out their lives in all corners of this country. Without knowing them -yet somehow understanding so much about them -Chandler writes and sings irresistible slices of truth, in all its warm, sad, funny, heartbreaking, angry, chaotic, and beautiful forms. Stylistically, Chandler falls somewhere between the earnest American rock of Tom Petty and the wry, mysterious storytelling of Tom Waits. His melodies are individually his own and yet feel immediately familiar and comfortable. Matt Cheplic (2004)





Bay Chandler "While You Wait"

If you're looking for a PR spin, if you want us to tell you that Selma,Alabama born Singer/Songwriter, Bay Chandler is the next Bob Dylan, or if want us to tell you That every Rag Tag Music publication in the country has proclaimed him the next great musical offering,were sorry, but not here.

In a music scene filled with Glamour Power Punk and Nashville's desperate search for a New Rebel, a breath of fresh air is stirring from a small Alabama town, and finally, here is a sound we can relate too!

Twenty Something Singer/Songwriter Bay Chandler returns from a one year musical hiatus in 2004, delivering the eloquently tasteful and heartbreakingly bold EP "While You Wait".

Produced and Engineered by Jeremy Stephens (Greg Allman, Aquarium Rescue Unit, Derek Trucks) and backed a unprecedented host of musicians including: Sherry Cothran Evinrudes, Sherry Cothran) Mickey Buckins (Bob Dylan, Bobby Blue Bland) Larue Larry (Rueben Studdard) N.C Thurman (Gary Nichols) and Scott Todd (Lenny LeBlanc).

With "While you Wait" Bay Chandler has tapped into the hearts of Blue Collar and White Collar workers everywhere, by mixing the sounds of Rock, Folk, Country, and Rockabilly, and placing these genres into songs that discuss Death, Love, Sunday Morning Regret, and The Perils of a War torn World.

"When we wrapped up "While you Wait" I sent several copies to some Fan's and Friend's, I was curious what there thoughts would be, because my Fan's and Friend's don't sugar coat anything, anyway, when I started getting calls with the manliest of men,crying on the other end of the phone, and the sweetest of young ladies ready to rise up and start a revolution no matter what the cause, all I could think was that no matter, what happens to this CD ("While you Wait") I had succeeded in getting inside the heart's and mind's of the Richest of the Rich and the Poorest of the Poor, and the dreams I had as a young songwriter, Dreams of simply wanting to vicariously spend a little time in everybody's life- had finally started to come true when I least expected it."

What happens to this self contained independent powerhouse remains to be seen, but the facts remain, after selling of his debut release "Bay Chandler and a Couple of Friends" out of print in just a matter of months, and making name for himself as a voice for the has been-never will be generation, It's just a matter of time, before everyone understands the beauty in his normality, It's just a matter of time!

if you are looking for wonderfully creative instumentation, great vocals, and lo
On the EP While You Wait, Bay is reaching out to his listeners with every track. He's enjoying the ride. He's having fun. Bay is letting his listeners in on his secrets. He's opening up to his audience with every lyric. These five songs (all written by bay chandler) are each treasures. They yearn to be heard over and over again. Bay is a journey storyteller on track #3 Madelyn. Bay is a man yearning for priceless moments on track #1. Bay challenges the status quo on track #2 Rise. He's having a blast on track #4 remembering that shady lawn. And Bay calls for reflection on the wars that we wage in track #5 take me.

Bay keeps the listener near with every track, and that's what makes this EP a must for those that appreciate wonderful roots rock and soulful songwriting.
