In Mission:Music’s 17th episode, Stefan, Jason, and Cory sit down with The Sam Chase. The crew gets into some of Sam’s music, how many other Sam Chases there are, learnings from 8 months of pandemic live streaming, rocking out to a party bus in SF, and the inside scoop of playing at Outside Lands–and meeting Lars Ulrich backstage.
The Sam Chase & The Untraditional hails from San Francisco, California. This juggernaut of a band blends rock n roll with folk music while maintaining the sensibilities and attitudes that come from growing up on a healthy diet of punk rock.
The leader of the band is The Sam Chase himself, a natural storyteller with a voice that sounds as if it has weathered many an epic tale. With boot-stomping orchestration and lyrics that have been immortalized on the tattooed skin of their fans, The Sam Chase & The Untraditional doesn’t mess around.
These are the warriors we need in these troubled times.
