Eminent singer-songwriter, The Sam Chase, flanked on one side by Chandra Johnson, violin heroine, and on the other by Devon McClive, renowned and feared cellist at large. A refreshing and new style they call “Chamber Americana.” This is what you get when deftly bowed strings collide with ironclad songwriting. This is the pure distillation of adventure and the heartache of American song. 

To see Chandra and Devon wield their unforgiving instruments with such skill is truly inspiring. These women create a symphony, intricate and epic. The Sam Chase is an international touring artist, with five studio albums; he was voted Best Singer-Songwriter in SF Weekly 2019, 2018, and 2017. Chandra Johnson studied violin at Western Washington University; she has played with Mary Lambert, Devotchka, Allen Stone, John Craigie, and many more. Devon McClive was trained by a cello guru in the Appalachian mountains; she performs/publishes music with her own band and makes up nonsense songs for her son.
