"If Timbaland has some free time, Chase Allen’s music would probably be the kind he could get down with producing."

Summary: If Timbaland has some free time, Chase Allen’s music would probably be the kind he could get down with producing.

The Players: Chase Allen, vocals, keyboard; Bert Baker, drums; Russel Walters, bass; Ryan Radcliff, guitar.

Material: Chase Allen’s music is R&B and soul with the energy and catchiness of Maroon 5. The tunes are definitely radio-ready, although some, like "Who the," where Allen asks, "Who the F- do you think you are?," may not exactly be radio-friendly. Be that as it may, the songs are so strong and the melodies so memorable, especially "Lying Awake," you’ll have no choice but to sing and dance to this funky white boy’s beats.

Musicianship: The talented musicians in the band are the perfect complement to Allen, who plays keys with precision and passion. And, his vocals are impressive with a range and style comparable to Justin Timberlake. Like that R&B-pop star, Allen executes vocal runs fast and intricate.

Performance: Although Allen played a very short set (only four songs), it energized the audience and left everyone wanting more. The music was excellent, as was Allen’s technical performance. More experience in front of a crowd would benefit his overall impact. Allen put it all out there and left his heart on the stage, and the audience responded.

Summary: If Timbaland has some free time, Chase Allen’s music would probably be the kind he could get down with producing. It is big and funky and Allen’s singing ability is noteworthy to say the least. And although he may, at times, appear to exist in his own world, what a world it must be.

Chase Allen
Chase Allen was one of my first MySpace friends, so needless to say that is where I discovered his music. His page was much more established than mine: it had a cool background image, and he had like at least 1,000 friends. Now Chase has upwards of 6,500. Obviously he is doing something right. Chase Allen categorizes his music as "R&B/ Soul/ Experimental," which seems to fit pretty well, but still not perfectly. All the usual ingredients are present: singer/songwriter playing keyboards, thick vocal harmonies, tight drummer, supportive guitarist, bass (though you can't really make it out that well through the MySpace music player). Chase is an awesome singer, and his harmonies (especially on "Echoes") have an unexpectedly rich cadence. Being white and sounding black while not seeming to try to sound black always helps too. His songs aren't exactly straight-away R&B, Soul, and they are not really poppy enough to be heard on mainstream radio, but they are solid with definite elements from those categories, sounding unique with interesting chord changes and transitions between sections. Chase Allen seems to fit in with an emerging group of artists who lack a definitive categorization, as well as a centralized outlet. That new type of R&B-Soul-ish-a-little-different type of stuff that can't be called neo-soul or hip hop, because it is neither. It will all becaome more clear in the months and years to come.
From the info gleaned from his page, Chase plays around L.A. with his band as his main form of promotion. The tracks that aren't live could use some sprucing up, but they definitely serve their purpose as demos. Nice job, Chase. Your music is tight.
