Welcome to the New Site!

I’ve got exciting plans for 2024 – so many stories to tell, so many songs to give away, so many adventures to embark upon together – and the best ways to keep up are to join my new Friends Club, to follow me on Bandcamp, or to sign up for my monthly stories newsletter. I hope to see you around! 

Music News, Philosophical Ramblings, Spiritual Searching, Biographical Storytelling, Artist Album Rankings & Reviews, and More!

The Official Blog

This blog contains everything: hot takes, tangents, behind-the-scenes, and everything you could want from a Nashville-based author/songwriter who does his best to keep the pulse of the local scene, the entertainment industry, and the intersections between Christian art and modern culture.

P.S. Jokes aside, this website’s blog currently contains much less than everything. Due to the 2024 redesign and relaunch, the entire website is starting from scratch. The plan as of February 2024 is to publish a new article every week AND re-post a weekly article from old iterations of the website.

“Settled in the Unsettled” – Story Behind the Song

“Settled in the Unsettled” – Story Behind the Song

“Settled in the Unsettled” is a special song, unlike anything else I’ve yet written. It has perhaps the highest bang-for-your-buck ratio within my discography, packing many memorable musical moments and interesting intellectual inquiries within less than three minutes. The composition leans into my classical and traditional influences, and it’s the first song I’ve released that sounds like it has already existed for many decades, as if it could’ve been released in the 1950’s.

“Middle Of My Words” – Story Behind the Song

“Middle Of My Words” – Story Behind the Song

“Middle of My Words” was written on the same day as multiple songs that I’ve already released: “Counsel,” “Lonely Saints,” and “Interrogate the Fantasy.” That day (April 4, 2018) was a special occasion, marking the end of an era in my life. A few weeks later, my brother Taylor would get married. I had just moved out of our apartment and he was getting ready to move out, too, after three years of us rooming together.

Do you Internet? Are we Internetting?

I’ll be honest – now that you’re here, I really don’t want you to leave my fancy new website. But if you’re eager to follow me on any of the classic social networks, these are the links you’re looking for. (Fun fact: The Social Network is my favorite movie.)

Have you ever wanted a song just for you?

The Song Shop

I [Chase] have nearly ten years of experiencing writing customized songs for people (usually commissioned as a gift for a loved one or to commemorate a special occasion), and it’s one of the most fulfilling ways I have ever used my skills as a songwriter. If you work with my song shop, you get to tell me what genre to write it (or what artist to emulate), you can collaborate with me on lyrics, and I will offer a full refund if you do not like the initial song demo. Click here to check out the price options (which I guarantee will be better than the rest of the market), or if the song shop is currently closed for new commissions, join the waiting list to find out when I’m accepting new customers again!


I just gave her the song and she loved it so much. Just wanting to thank you all again, you have a fan for life in myself and my wife. I really appreciate the hard work you all put in to make this possible.”

“I love this. The lyrics are perfect. The song is better than anything I could imagine. You’ve been incredible to work with. Thank you for everything! I couldn’t have done this on my own!

I love it, and so does she! She actually started crying, which is clearly the best reaction possible.”
