I was in Atlanta recently for a concert and a guy was walking around passing out a thing of CDs. Honestly, I thought he was handing out the same stack of CD’s I was for another band, and denied him. He said, “No, this is MY CD” And I realized he was a guy that had added me on Myspace recently, named Big Chad Famous. Now, I will admit he added me, but I hadn’t had a chance to really sit down and listen. I talked to him for a couple minutes and was a really cool guy, and decided to look more into him when I made it home. I checked out his MySpace page.

Little did I know that he’s been doing a little work with Andy Slagle from Fishhawk. They have managed to craft some pretty finely tuned blend of rock and hip-hop that defies the normal Jay-Z/Linkin Park matchup. Big Chad’s flow never stays at the same speed or rhythm, which keeps you interested in what he has to say, when he has a hook, it’ll scream for your attention. Put it all together, you have a pretty impressive package of unsigned pop splendor. - Kendal @theplugg.com

Bio

Driven is the best word to describe Chad Welch aka Big Chad Famous. Chad has known the importance of working hard for what you want since he was a kid growing up in Fayetteville, Georgia. In middle school he started writing hip hop lyrics. During high school he started freestyling on campus, but he still didn’t have the means to record his music. After graduating from high school, Chad teamed up with some friends to form a group. The process was tedious, but Chad was determined to get his music to potential fans. The crowd Chad was hanging out with started to stray down the wrong path, so he decided to part ways and focus more on writing lyrics. A good friend gave him Acid 4.0 and immediately Chad started recording his songs with the small amount of equipment he had access to. He put out a mix tape called “That Fayetteville Shit” which created a buzz around his home town. In 2008, Chad joined up with the Early Morning Studio (EMS) family. Chad immediately started working on his first album, “Big Chad Famous,” with Andy Slagle of FishHawk, co-owner of EMS. On September 5, 2008, Chad performed as Big Chad Famous for the first time at Lenny’s Bar in Atlanta. His first performance created an immediate hype. In less than a year, Chad did more than most artists hope to do in a lifetime. MakeTheCharts.com named him their top artist and shot his first video for their commercial which has aired on the NBC and MTV networks. A few months later Chad was chosen as one of the top 5 finalist out of 18,000 acts, by Myspace Rock The Space Contest. Chad’s music is unique because he does not confine himself to one genre. His tracks bring something different to hip hop, each song has its own unique sound that cannot be classified as one genre. No one will get bored listening to Chad’s album. Chad has quickly become a favorite artist to book by Atlanta’s top promoters and venues because he always attracts a large, devoted crowd. The amount of local support he has obtained over the past year is mind blowing. He has already performed at some of the biggest parties in Georgia. He has also shared the stage with majority of the artist in Atlanta. Chad’s determination, work ethic, and drive are a force to be reckoned with. If you want to keep up with the path of hip hop, keep your eyes on Big Chad Famous, this is just the beginning.
