It’s no secret that we here at Keepin’ It Country are huge fans of Brandon Chase. We interviewed him long before he was on The Voice and are thrilled to bring you some exciting news! Brandon will release his debut single “One” to country radio on March 4th, but he’ll be world-premiering it on air tomorrow with 99.5 KPLX The Wolf in Dallas. Be sure to listen here at 7:30 am central.

Brandon debuted the single last week at the Country Radio Seminar in Nashville to radio stations from across the country with positive response.  Additionally, he’ll promote the single at Day Break with Ron Corning on February 28 and Good Morning Texas on March 4th.

 ”I’m so excited to release the first radio single from my debut album,” says Brandon. “After years of hard work, I’ve finally found my sound.  I can’t wait for people to hear it!”

“One” will be available at all digital outlets on March 4th including iTunes, Amazon and Spotify.

Exclusive Interview: Catching Up with Brandon Chase

We first had the opportunity to chat with Brandon Chase last April, long before he caught Blake Shelton‘s eye on The Voice or had legions of loyal “Chasers” eagerly anticipating his every musical move. Since our very first interview, we’ve kept our tabs on Brandon, chatting with him periodically throughout the show, and now, we can’t watch to catch you up on what the future has in store for this Texan talent.

Since leaving The Voice, the ever-humble Brandon admits that his life hasn’t changed all too much. “As soon as The Voice ended, I just kept doing exactly what I was doing beforehand – working on my craft, doing everything I can to create new music and get it out to the fans.” He says, “Through all that, I’m trying to start up a tour to travel around and meet fans in different states and whatnot that haven’t had the chance to see me live. It’s been kind of usual, just working hard and doing what I do, which is music. There’s definitely been some doors that have been opened that might not have been without The Voice being there.”

One of those doors include the opportunity to bring new music to his constantly growing and loyal fan base. He’s currently working on an album, which he describes as “higher quality and just more me,” as well as “ten times better than anything I’ve ever put out.” Brandon admits that he can’t wait for fans to hear the new tunes. “I’m extremely excited. I feel like it meets the standard of where music’s out today and it just gives me hope to be a success on radio and I just hope that people will accept it and receive it.”

EXCLUSIVE: Catching up with The Voice’s Brandon Chase

It’s no secret that Brandon Chase of NBC’s The Voice is a favorite here at Keepin’ It Country. We had the chance to catch up with Brandon last week after his Voice Battle round aired. As usual, he was incredibly humble and gave us some insight into his journey on the show thus far.

Although only a few seconds of Brandon’s battle round actually aired on television, we were thrilled with Brandon’s big win. He told us that it was beyond difficult to keep that secret. “Keeping the secret of the Blinds was hard and the Battles was equally, if not more difficult.. I so wanted to say ‘Yeah I made it’ but I contained myself.”

For his battle, Brandon went up against 15-year-old, Emily Randolph and performed “Tiny Dancer.” Both the song choice and his competitor made him nervous, as he admitted he wasn’t too familiar with the Elton John track. “I wasn’t super familiar with the song and didn’t know that Tim McGraw had a version,” Brandon tells us. “But after hearing that version, the choice made a lot more sense to me. It ended up being an incredible song for my voice. It really compliments my tone and shows off my range more than a song I might’ve picked would have.”

Exclusive Interview: The Voice’s Brandon Chase

Last week, America was introduced to Brandon Chase, a rising country singer from Arlington, Texas who was picked by Blake Shelton on NBC’s The Voice. We’re pretty excited to say “We knew him first” when it comes to Brandon, as we discovered him earlier this year and spoke to him about his musical aspirations. He even appeared on our StageIt and world premiered a song called “Miracle” for the fans watching live.

Having worked with Brandon, we were thrilled to discover he was going to be appearing on The Voice. In addition to being an incredible talent, he’s also one of the nicest people we’ve ever had the chance to speak with. Luckily, we were able to chat with him again after his first appearance on The Voice.

If you missed Brandon’s appearance, he sang “Wanted” by Hunter Hayes, a song he’s done many times before.  “’Wanted’ is a song I’ve been doing for quite a while since it came out…and everyone’s always loved it. It’s such a great song, and the lyrics are awesome. It makes you feel good, and it’s a song I can relate to and come across as genuine.” Brandon says. “Those lyrics are truly what I want to do with my music, to make people feel wanted and special, because they are.”

Exclusive Interview: Introducing Brandon Chase

Brandon+Chase

If you’ve visited the Rising Stars of Country section on iTunes, there’s a chance you’ve seen Brandon Chase. His new EP, Country Enough, is featured there alongside the likes of country’s hottest new names, Charlie Worsham, Joel Crouse, Parmalee and more. However, if you haven’t heard his music yet, it’s time we introduce you to this  mega-talented Texan singer- songwriter.

KIC: For those readers who may be ‘meeting’ you for the first time in this blog, can you give us a little bit of a back story as to how you began performing?

BC: I started out my musical journey by singing in my church’s youth band when I was about 13/14. They had an audition to join the band, and for some reason, I just knew I had to try out. I went into it having absolutely no music experience other than beating on some drums. After making the band, I started teaching myself piano, which eventually led to guitar as well. I started writing worship songs for our youth band and found that I had a passion it. So I decided to major in songwriting in college which eventually evolved my writing into secular country songs. Now I’m performing all over town and loving every minute of it!

KIC: We read that you graduated high school at 15 and completed a master certificate for songwriting through Berklee at 18. What’s next?

BC: I actually graduated from Berklee at 17 believe it or not! But hopefully the next step in my life/career will be to tour the US and get the opportunity to meet all the amazing fans that I have had the pleasure to connect with through Facebook and Twitter.
