Still working on that hot first release.



Darwin has had a vibrant music scene for quite some time, but now modern rock outfit Chasin Aces appears ready, willing and more than able to add another exciting chapter to their home town’s rock history book.
As proven throughout their debut EP, recorded with renowned Brisbane producer Stuart Stuart, Chasin Aces have absorbed influences ranging from the vocal styling of Pink to the musical blend of Paramore and Evanescence. What is left is filtered through each members own unique musical perspectives, with the result being a true feast for the senses, blending bold emphatic guitar with a raw and powerful female voice.
Chasin Aces deliver their musical goods with passion, power and a vision that belies their limited time since inception.
Formed in 2011 by family members Jared and Rhys Winter and Stuart 'Ducky' Richardson, it didn't take long to recruit vocalist Melanie Totten after hearing her perform at a mutual friend’s party. Along with recently acquired guitarist Jordan Atwill, they round out the 5 piece guitar driven rock band.
Chasin Aces perform regularly at local musician’s havens The Chippo and Happy Yess, holding both regular gigs and supporting slots for various causes. Such causes include:
*The Northern Territory Early Intervention Pilot Program (In conjunction with the NT Government) to reduce underage youth binge drinking.
*Working alongside Northern Territory AIDS and Hepatitis Council (NTAHC) in providing free condoms during gigs to promote safe sex.
*Participating in SLAM Day 2012 by hosting an all ages event involving various local youth bands.
Other notable gigs include:
*Supporting act for Australian Music Legends Mental as Anything at the Trailer Boat Club in 2012
*Performing at Nightcliff Seabreeze Festival in 2012
*Performing on the bandstand for the Royal Darwin Show in 2012
From the first note to the last, Chasin Aces is a band on the rise. While some songs can come across as dark, there's always a positive thread running through the music, leaving the listener with the unmistakable feeling that this has been a musical journey worth taking.
