At the age of 9 years old CHASE was discovered by Maurice Starr (original founder of New Kids On The Block , Menudo and New Edition)
By the age of 10 CHASE was signed to a boy band called "Lucky" . He performed and recorded with lucky until age 14 , while his greatest successes during that time were working with Radio Disney and opening for acts like OutKast , Destinys Child, & Vitamin-C , CHASE eventually found him self starting on a path to a solo career.
At age 15 CHASE decided to head to Nashville in search of a new path. After walking up and down Music Row for almost a year beating on all the doors of different record companies and agencies it wasn't until he finally got recognized by mega agent , Tony Conway , whom is responsible for artist's career's such as Garth Brooks, Dixie chicks, and George Strait & Jason Aldean to name a few , that he felt he had caught his big break.
Tony took the time to groom CHASE and put him on the road over the coming years doing well over 200+ shows, allowing CHASE the opportunity to open for artists such as Jason Aldean , Taylor Swift, Atlanta rhythm section, Brantley Gilbert and many many more..
Some interesting accolades about CHASE:
•Was the youngest member of the CMA in the history of the organization in 2005
•One of the only artists in history to ever have the permission of Keith Urban to perform an unheard original that Keith Urban wrote himself but allowed CHASE to record and release upon his wishes, but still to this day , the song "Things I Believe" has never been released
•CHASE left Nashville at the age of 19 to pursue a pop career in Atlanta and Los Angeles and was able to work with Dave Cobb (Grammy award-winning producer) , and had an original single picked up by yahoo radio
•Was on American Idol season 13, waited in line in Atlanta for almost 24 hours, made it past three rounds and was asked to come back for season 14 , but ultimately was cut from season 13.
CHASE decided that after well over a decades worth of hard work and being told he had to wait once again for his shot at stardom , he decided that he would take a couple years off and raise his newborn daughter, Brookline Rose Mitchell, who is now three years old, and also wanted to just spend some time being a husband to his newly wedded wife , Jacqueline Augusta Mitchell.
Now with a catalog of 100+ original songs that span multiple genres from country to pop to R&B, on top of a first hand doctorates education in the music business, CHASE is ready to come back better and bigger than ever! The world is about to have a new household name and artist to look up to, his name is CHASE!
THE VAN LEARS
The Van Lears are brothers Andrew and Trey Bentley who are from the mountains of North West Georgia. Currently working with platinum producer Ted Hewitt (Rodney Atkins) recording their debut album. The brothers write with well known writers, such as Steve Bogard, writer of George Strait’s “Carried Away”; Bob Regan, writer of “Your Everything” for Keith Urban; and Josh Osborne, writer of "Merry Go Round" for Kacey Musgraves and “Come Over” for Kenny Chesney. Trey and Andrew got the name "The Van Lears" after hearing Loretta Lynn's album "Van Lear Rose" produced by Rocker Jack White. Like the album, combining Rock and Country, Andrew and Trey naturally developed their love of Rock and Country to form a sound that could only be defined by calling themselves "The Van Lears."
