article imageInterview with country singer Brandon Chase: 'One' Special

By Markos Papadatos     Mar 3, 2014 in Music
Brandon Chase was a contestant of the fifth season of the reality singing competition, "The Voice." He was coached by country superstar Blake Shelton as part of "Team Blake."
Chase auditioned for the show with a rendition of country singer Hunter Hayes' love ballad "Wanted," who ironically enough is on the same record label as his mentor, Shelton.
For Chase, The Voice was a "fulfilling and exciting" learning experience. "Blake is an awesome artist and obviously, he has done very well and has made a name for himself. He keeps on winning all of these awards in these country award shows and he is doing amazing. Having the opportunity to take advice from him and to be in the same room of him was an honor. It was great to have that one on one time with him. It was really cool to be with an artist that is in the same genre," he said.
He is now an independent recording country artist and his new single "One" goes to radio on March 4. "It was definitely something different for me, but it is closer to the sound that I have wanted from the beginning. The current projects that I have put out are for the people to listen to. This new single is more in my wheelhouse and it is where I want to be musically. The song is a great story and I think anybody can relate to at some time in their life. It's about that kind of desire to pursue somebody and the whole song is about the 'one chance to show you' that that I can be good for you," he said.
Chase participated at this year's Country Radio Seminar (CRS), which he dubbed as an "amazing" experience. "It was my first CRS ever and I did not know really what to expect at all going into it. We met a ton of awesome people and I really enjoyed meeting all of the radio DJs, as well as all other artists. It was a lot of fun and it was totally worth it," he said.
Regarding his future plans, he hopes to "hit the road" and play for his fans in their cities. "I want to be a touring artist and I want to have that one on one connection with people in person and be able to share my music face to face," he said.
When he was young, Chase stopped breathing 64 times and his parents were told that he wouldn't live and thrive. He was able to overcome those odds and he graduated high school at the age of 15 and college at the age of 17. "The doctors told my parents that due to a lack of oxygen over a period of time, I could be mentally impaired, blind or deaf and that I would definitely be unable to do sports. A few months later, I was off the machines and I started growing up and I was an active child. I played a ton of sports and I was really into baseball and I defeated all of the odds that they stacked up against me," he explained.
