Bio

Landyn:
Landyn started as a solo project to feature Chance Walker's
songwriting. Chance had been touring and making albums in 2 other
bands prior when he decided to go on his own. Chance and Vada met
through mutual friends in the Seattle music scene. Coincidentally,
they both moved to Los Angeles, Chance to attend the Musicians
Institute and Vada to attend the School of Makeupry. As Chance
envisioned a newer Fleetwood Mac sound and a unique duet band, he was
looking for a female accompanying vocalist and pianist, and it turned
out she was in front of him all along. One random night as they were
cruising the streets of LA singing everything from the Beatles to
Backstreet Boys (dont judge us) together, the idea arose of becoming
an undeniably catchy, easy on the eyes, and energetically fun
songwriting team. Chance's previous music has already been toured
around the country several times, and has been part of South By Southwest festival,
Sundance Film Festival, The National Scholar Athlete Games, Mtv Running Home For Teens Foundation,
was featured on garageband.com as "Rock Song of the day" and earned
an award in 2006 for "Most Innovative" from "Aha! Blogolicious!"
Blog Awards. "Self Portrait" from his first EP has just been licensed to a new DVD movie "American
High School" starring Mtv The Hill's, Laguna Beach, and Making The Band stars set to release in 2009.
They are working on their colossal debut album with producer Arnold Lanni set to release in 2009.

Chance Walker:
Chance was raised in the northwest from the age of 3 when at the time
he was in his first ear training class. His pediatrician told his
mother that he liked to play his violin to relieve stress, a gift that
Chance's mom wanted to give him. At the age of 5 Chance began taking
violin lessons in susuki style training. He performed many awkward "im
too young to wear a tuxedo" violin concerts until middle school, where
he was in several orchestras and small ensembles, being first chair in
the grade above him through middle school. Chance started playing his
brother's old acoustic guitar, and shortly after received an electric
guitar for his 13th birthday. Through high school Chance was a first
violin in orchestra, switching to choir for the last two years and was
a first tenor with no experience in vocal training. He was in high
school plays and musicals, and made his first solo CD fully packaged
in CD cases with inserts independently at the age of 16 using money
from a summer job at the car wash. He marketed the album on the school
morning television program and sold nearly all his only 1,000 copies
at the release date's 15 minute break. He performed these songs in
front of his 2,000 peers as a sophomore in high school... which is
still his scariest, most critical audience. He formed his first real
band in 2000, Summit Avenue, which continued to play for 6 years and
accomplished an EP that landed them 1100+ capacity sold out venues in
Seattle, nationwide performances, awards, a brief moment on a Mtv TRL
feature, and a development deal with Universal subsidiary Channel
Records. In the summer of 2006 nine songs into Summit Avenue's first
full length album the boys split with their management, moved back to
Seattle, and Chance started working on his solo career and Summit
Avenue diminished. With a brief period of pre production and writing
Chance received a phone call in early 2007 asking him to join and tour
with the San Diego based band The Real You as lead guitar and backup
vocalist. Chance took the opportunity for over a year, then decided to
come back to his original plan- to make the best pop/rock record of
his generation. He has studied vocal training in his hometown of
Bellingham, WA. He studied guitar in Mount Vernon, WA and currently at
the Musicians Institute of Hollywood, CA. His biggest influences are
Michael Jackson, Elvis Presley, Silverchair, Jimmy Eat World, all 90's
Seattle rock bands, and anything involving passion. He also enjoys
playing the banjo, mandolin, and the kazoo.

Vada Ashley:
Vada was born in Northern California where she soon after moved to
Germany for the next 7 years of her childhood. Always wanting to
perform, her parents put her in ballet classes at the age of four. She
started taking classical piano lessons when she was seven. One year
later her family moved to the states and settled in the Seattle area
where she continued with her piano lessons. At this point, Vada was
begging to act. Her idea of fun was directing her own television
variety shows, and writing plays and forcing the neighborhood kids
(and their parents) to come watch them. She even built herself a stage
complete with a curtain. She soon started doing real theater and has
been in many plays and musicals. Her desire to perform grew bigger
and bigger until her parents finally agreed to letting her sign with
an agent so she could start auditioning for jobs around the Sea
