For almost 20 years, Chance has been writing and playing original music, as well as entertaining people from all over the state of Texas, with an eclectic blend of acoustic rock that spans genres from classic to alternative sounds. Originally from El Paso, Texas, Chance moved to North Texas where in late nineties he formed Last Call with former Reverend Bone front man Tony Stearns. In 2001, Chance began recording and subsequently performing his songs live to audiences from all over the state. These recordings, while never officially released, continue to bring moderate local and Internet success.
Playing with bands such as Odessa, Strange Brew, Bad Karma, and most recently acoustic gigs with Delta Rage guitarist Ryan Cassidy, as well as North Texas guitarist Roger DeWater, has helped shape Chance as an emerging artist as well has brought a new wave of inspiration and desire to release new material. Singing is his primary role, but he brings a unique, somewhat unfinished approach to the guitar giving his music a feeling of raw energy and passion.
Drawing influences from bands such as Pink Floyd, Matchbox 20, Counting Crowes and Jackopierce, Chance continues to write music that not only tells a story but also elicits an energy that, “just makes you feel good.”
Chance has been lending his voice to radio, stage and TV as well. Formally working for NPR, he also continues to do voice over work for various animated TV series and radio commercials. Currently, Chance is the lead vocalist for Bad Karma, considered one of the best classic/alternative rock cover bands in North Texas, and continues to play venues throughout the region.
