Fog City Blues: The Sam Chase & co.


The Sam Chase has a voice like a nun on the lam with a mouthful cigarettes and curse words in a lonely bar, drunkenly dancing next to a broken jukebox. 

His songs are scribbled, not written, on lipstick and sweat-stained motel bedsheets because he likes the way the ink bleeds. His guitar runs on diesel and leaks like the morning after too much Whiskey. Hailing from the hills of San Francisco, Sam and his band (whom he lovingly refers to as The Untraditional) released their third album, Great White Noise, in 2016. This Friday they'll be joined at The Chapel in San Francisco by M. Lockwood Porter and The Dixie Giants. Sam and friends join host Devon Strolovitch live in the studio this Wednesday 3/22 at 9 pm for a preview.
