Songwriter and producer Chase Coy experienced success as a musician at a young age. At 18 years old, he got signed after selling 300,000 singles on his own. When things fell through he decided to pursue an indie pop project, and was drawn to the music scene and community in Nashville. He recorded his debut record as Sun Culture with friend Jordan Schmidt last year. It was self-titled and released in March of 2014. He just released a new single “Young Blood” in early October so I sent over some fill in the blanks to learn more about Chase and his Sun Culture project.
Three words I’d use to describe myself are…. fun, happy, and loud.
My favorite season is…. autumn. I love watching the leaves change and those light, breezy days.
I knew I wanted to pursue music when…. I realized that nothing else made sense to me at all.
The first song I wrote was…. probably some untitled track that is floating out there in cyberspace somewhere…
I decided to form Sun Culture because…. I wanted to try something different and push myself as a producer/writer.
I find inspiration from…. my past. I try to draw from what I know and make sense of it all by organizing my thoughts into music.
My favorite song of all time is…. “I Can’t Make You Love Me” by Bonnie Raitt. I mean, have you heard it?
I’m currently listening to…. Bahamas. Keeping it chill, vibing out.
One thing I want you to remember while listening to my music is…. every perfect day you’ve ever spent during the summer, soaking up each minute of your youth like a sponge while swearing you’d never grow older. Late nights, long drives, and the feeling that you were the ruler of your tiny piece of the universe.
The inspiration or meaning behind my single “Young Blood” is…. Bonnie and Clyde. It’s a song about youthful rebellion. It’s about feeling invincible, and knowing for a moment that you owned the world.
For fun I like to…. hang out with friends and make music. The fun never stops.
Something odd I want my fans to know about me is…. I still love watching cartoons.
My last meal would be…. a Chipotle burrito, filled to the brim with chicken, rice, veggies, and guacamole, then topped off with their chipotle-honey vinaigrette.
In the next six months you should expect…. to hear a lot more from Sun Culture. Working on new singles and a music video, to be released very soon.
My favorite words to live by are…. “There is no substitute for hard work.” – Thomas A. Edison
