We Are Chasing Zen
Pounding thru the fabric of reality to create a rhythm not alone.
We are five but we are one, our powerful destiny's have brought us together to create what we cannot do alone. As time swings on, all our pasts come together in the now, so let me introduce the band.
Golden: a Singer/Songwriter and Recording Engineer never stops putting one note behind another pushing forward to find what has always been.
Elizabeth: Violin/mandolin/Songwriter with both eyes on the prize one can never keep track of all the bands she lends her talent too a dreamy, beautiful, bow shredding vixen.
Spencer: Saxophone/Guitar/Songwriter melody maker on the fly a band expert always challenging the band to step out of the box and learn something new.
Mike: Drums/Bass/Songwriter Recording Engineer laying down the time and bringing up the mix keeping the gig together one show at a time.
Joey: Bass/Songwriter straight from the heart of the amazon forest bringing Brazilian flavor and flare and keeping the low end.

There are no part time musicians in this band all five souls live to make sound with Spencer and Elizabeth bringing Jazz performance degrees from the U of U and Mike coming to the table with a sound engineering degree from Berklee, Boston's prestigious School of music there is no shortage of musical education. Joey an accomplished Brazilian percussionist stepping up to the bass, these four lay a perfect foundation to bring the many solo acoustic songs Golden has been working on for the last sixteen years to the light and public ears.
With an awesome reception at all the many types of venues from Art Shows to Ego's the diversity of the music stands on it's own. Golden's songs originally written for solo guitar have been rearranged by these five souls and now span the horizon of all styles of music. The astonishing range of our shy singer is to be appreciated, no one ever says he sounds like the same singer twice. Having been told his sounds range from Johnny Lang to Ween.
Now coming out of the garage with a CD on the way.

Chasing Zen a mix of contemporary pop music and jazz with a hint of country. The many influences include Jack Johnson, Dave Matthews, Jimi Hendrix, Queen, David Bowie and The Rolling Stones. This band does it all. Rocking violin, pulsing acoustic guitar and a wailing sax playing with so much energy even your Grandma couldn't sit still. There are no boundaries! To Rock and To Roll is the first and foremost on our agenda. We dream, we scream and make a lot of noise!
