"organic. unforced. focused."
Inspired by the greatest music of the past century, chase the bear draws inspiration anywhere from the harmonious pop-sensibilities of The Beatles, to the hard-hitting groove of Led Zeppelin, and various elements of funk, soul, and modern rock. Since their inception in July 2017, they've toured throughout B.C. and got the opportunity to showcase in front of the B.C. Touring Council, who enthusiastically commented,
“The fresh-faced Chase the Bear members rocked us with their performance ... for such a young act, they delivered with professionalism and passion”
In January 2018, they won first place in Live Acts’ Best In Vancouver competition where they wowed the sold-out Railway Club and the industry judges. Immediately after their performance, producer Danny Craig (The Vidos, Aviator Shades, Default) approached the band, expressing he was impressed by their authenticity and passion. Since then, Danny has been offering guidance in their music career. Tommy Mac of Hedley also referred to them as “lightning in a bottle”. For the rest of the year, Chase the Bear plans to release their first recorded material, as well as tour more throughout Western Canada, including a confirmed spot Tumbler Ridge’s Grizfest Music Festival in August.
