New Haven, Connecticut rock quintet, Chaser Eight, is a melodic, alternative rock outfit. The group boasts bluesy and richly expressive vocals, mesmerizingly textured guitar playing, and a dynamic and imaginative rhythm section. Inspired by Joan Jett, Foo Fighters and Alanis Morissette, Chaser Eight writes moody, guitar driven songs with soulful female vocals. Since the age of ten, singer *AUDRA* and guitarist Pat Walsh have been writing songs together and they write about relatable subject matter - darkness, love, loss, partying, and sex - inviting listeners to connect with the raw, passionate lyrics.
In 2013 the band made its television debut, performing two songs on WTNH's Connecticut Style Stage 8 and returned to Stage 8 in March 2016 and February 2015 to promote their singles and self-titled album. The band made their first official licensing placement in January 2014 with the commissioned remake of their song “Road (Indecision)” as the main title for the independent motion picture Acting Like Adults. Their music has been played on Connecticut radio stations 99.1 WPLR and Radio 104.1, with Radio 104.1 being the official host of their video release party at Stella Blues in New Haven, Connecticut on March 25, 2016 and album release party at The Ballroom at The Outer Space in Hamden, Connecticut on February 21, 2015. Chaser Eight has opened for Badfish, Panic! At The Disco, Atlas Genius, The London Souls, and Badfish. *AUDRA* has worked with The Rolling Stones' iconic former manager, Andrew Loog Oldham, on the production and arrangement of her songs. They will be performing live all throughout the Northeast during 2019 and you can find their music on iTunes, Spotify, Pandora, and many other popular sites.
