The descendant of one of America’s first Gypsies and the great grandson of a Vaudeville songwriter, Chase Hamblin was born in Tulsa, Oklahoma and was raised in Italy, France, and Singapore. His travels have taken him throughout Europe and Southeast Asia and from coast to coast across the US. Chase’s music channels many styles and influences from psychedelic folk and Texas swing to super pop and glam rock ‘n’ roll. His lyrics are thoughtful, poetic insights into the ills and the thrills of the human experience.
Chase Hamblin's five song debut EP, A FINE TIME, was recorded at the historic Sugar Hill Studios in Houston, TX and independently released in June 2009. A FINE TIME ranked #5 on Power Pop Station Brasil’s Top 10 EPs of 2009 and #11 on Absolute Powerpop’s Top 15 EPs of 2009. A FINE TIME was re-issued internationally by SteadyBoy Records on February 15, 2011.
In 2010, Chase Hamblin and his band performed before thousands of people at the Free Press Houston Summer Fest, the Houston Press Music Awards Showcase, the Discovery Green, and as the opening act for Roky Erickson. Chase Hamblin was nominated Best Male Vocals in the Houston Press Music Awards 2010 and is currently recording a new full length album.
