Chad is country folk, born and raised--many generations of Montanans run through his veins. As a youngster coinciding with the much prophesied Y2K, the call of the urban life drew him to Seattle. He’s mostly lost his accent, doesn't eat much red meat these days, thinks it's cold when it gets down to 40 degrees, even expresses emotion on occasion, but he’s still Montana through and through. He is still a quiet person, not a lot of chit chat, and the sound and sight of irrigation sprinklers with the mountains in the background is like valium for his soul. His life in Portland, Oregon moves a little faster now, but his music holds his roots at the core, shined up with some city grease.
