Flo Chase

Thank you for taking the time to have this interview with IMAAI.
Tell us about your music.
French born – Australian raised multi-instrumentalist Flo Chase is ready to take the US by a storm. After leaving his home, family, and friends to follow his dreams of making it in the music industry, Chase has used the experience of moving halfway
across the world and assimilating into a new culture to create some of his most emotionally driven work to date.
Chase’s connection to music began at seven after learning to play piano. This passion became even more important after, at age 12, he moved to Australia from France without knowing a word of English. Music became his way to communicate with his new surroundings, providing the comfort and familiarity he had left behind. Chase’s ability to perform only grew from there, starting with vocal training and expanding into musical composition studies and self-taught skills on a variety of
instruments including drums, banjo, harmonica, bass and ukulele.
It came as no surprise that when the time for further education arose, Chase would pursue a degree in Music Performance at the JMC Academy in Sydney, Australia. It was there that he would cut his teeth playing shows in the local circuit and release his debut EP, Le Debut. After finding success with the EP’s lead single “Lonely River,” Chase set his sights on Los Angeles and a full-time move to the music industry.
In the short amount of time he has been living in the US, Chase has released two debut studio albums titled ‘Seasons’ and ‘Toi’ which both received great commercial acclaim. Chase has lots of the new music and material on the horizon.

When did you start performing?
I started performing around the age of 16. I would play the local fairs and venues in my home town. I started performing lots more and about four to five times per week when I moved to Sydney, Australia to study music at university.

What do you consider to be your hometown and how does that affect your music?
I’m originally from a small island in the South Pacific name ‘New Caledonia’ and moved to Australia at the age of 12. So both places feel like home to me and have had a huge impact on my upbringing. I grew up listening to a lot of Australian folk music which I think definitely had an impact on my sound and inspiration. On the other hand, New-Caledonia is highly influenced by reggae music and culture which also has an influence on my sound and songwriting.

What performers have been your inspiration?
John Mayer, Ben Howard, Bob Marley, King of Leon and the Paper Kites. I grew up listening to a lot of their music which played a major part in my musical journey and songwriting. They’ve been major influences of mine since day one and to this day I find myself revisiting some of their earlier records when I need inspiration.

What do you base your success on?
Honesty and individuality. I’ve always tried to be true to myself and not to try to be someone else. I think vulnerability and honesty are the most important traits to songwriting. I believe my background traveling and moving between different countries and cultures also allowed me to draw lots of inspiration and internal growth. Finally I would mention collaboration and the opportunity I’ve had to work with some incredible people over the years.

What was your latest musical release?
‘Seasons’, the 11-track offering is Chase’s most ambitious work to date and reflects on his experiences these past 24 months and the different ‘seasons’ ‘of life as well as touches on some of the current global issues.
Seasons was recorded and compiled over the course of two years at Barking Owl Sound in Santa Monica, CA and was co-produced by Chase and Houston Fry, mixed by Kolton Lee (Kaleo, Foy Vance, Shania Twain, Niall Horan), and mastered by Joe Laporta (Shawn Mendes, David Bowie, the Weeknd) and Danny Pellerini (Shania Twain, City and Colour, Parachute).

I started working on this record about two years ago and I’ve been extremely close to it for a long while now. As an independent artist, I’ve been involved in the entire creative process, and I consider these songs and stories some of my most honest work to date”.
I would be lying if I said my life has only been made of highs these past twenty-four months; it’s definitely been a rollercoaster which I think a lot of people can resonate with. I like to call these segments as different seasons of life and through each season I’ve drawn inspiration. Furthermore, I feel these past few years our society has been getting more and more divided, however; we need to reminisce the fact that there is a lot more that unites us than divides us.

Do you have any news to share?
Stay tune for some new music right around the corner!
