Biography

Vintage Radio Gods is a high-energy rock band based in Nashville, TN. They know what Rock and Roll is and they bring it to the studio and the stage. Vintage Radio Gods’ sound is rooted in classic and progressive rock. They lay a great rock foundation and build a wall of sound on top. Some of the band's influences include Pearl Jam, Rush, Led Zeppelin, The Doors, Gin Blossoms, and Black Sabbath.

Energetic front man Jason Fox has a rocker's voice, and the soul necessary to back it up. When Jason takes the stage, everyone knows it. Jason is a stage veteran, and knows how to get a crowd amped!

Lead guitar guru Chris Hatter skillfully sustains the magic with wicked licks and leads. Chris takes his Nashville sound and adds dynamite to it. Chris is technically masterful on the guitar, and knows how to shred.

Clayton Griffin, of Memphis, TN, is a seasoned bass player in various genres of music. Clayton brings his own personal version of the “Memphis groove”. His personality in the rhythm section brings new depth and dimension to the band, and new possibilities for the growth.

Finally, the engineer driving this Rock-n-Roll train is drummer Nick Hatter. Nick is the heartbeat, and the life blood of the band that delivers the beats holding it all together and takes the band and the audience to the dark side and back again.

All members are gifted song writers and musicians, who bring something new, original, and fresh to the Nashville area, and are ready to take the band onto the National scene.

Here is their story…

Brothers Chris and Nick Hatter were born and raised in London, KY into a musical family and both took an early interest in music. At age 7 Chris got his first drum kit. For the next 5 years, he played drums every day, and developed his natural rhythm. At age 12 his parents gave him an electric guitar and he would spend hours locked in his room listening to records and the radio trying to learn and play along with his favorite songs.

By 1998, Chris was playing music with other guitarists in London, and he began to learn song structure and composition skills. During this period, Chris also learned how to play bass. His collaboration with local musicians would eventually lead to his first job as a bassist the rock band Nightshift in 2000. From 2000 to 2003, Chris gained some early recording experience with various local bands that never fully materialized, but he continued to chase his dream.

Chris’ younger brother Nick Hatter was given a small drum kit at the age of 5 and would sit for hours playing along with records and tapes. By the age of 10 he was playing a full-size kit and joined his middle school band. His skills improved and he was soon surpassing many of his band mates and peers. Nick's band instructor was amazed to find out Nick was completely self-taught. Nick later joined his school Jazz band to extend his range of styles. The following year, Nick was promoted to a competition band that took first place in a national contest. Nick played on and off with local musicians in London until he was recruited by his brother Chris in 2004.

In 2004 Chris was playing guitar for a band known as Jagged, a local country/rock band. The band’s drummer quit and Chris called on his brother Nick to take the spot. Like the other bands in London, Jagged struggled and ultimately split up. Chris and Nick began to use their talents in studio sessions and occasionally sitting in on live performances. The brothers performed with a band known as B&A during the 2005 Nashville Songwriters Festival on Music Row. They returned from Nashville triumphant after making a huge impression on musicians and audiences in the area. B&A brought the Hatter brothers on as permanent members and the band continued to play shows and managed to build a modest fan base. But just as the buzz around the band started to rise, so did the tensions among the members and by early 2006 Chris & Nick exited B&A.

Chris and Nick immediately formed their own band known as Arcainum [(R-K-num) Story of the name to follow]. They soon recorded demos that would lead to the new band’s self-titled debut album. Chris reluctantly took on the vocal responsibility for the group. After several attempts at building a full band, Chris and Nick grew tired of the lack of serious musicians in London, KY. By 2007, The Hatters decided to move to Nashville, TN to find Arcainum’s missing pieces.

A few weeks after moving to Nashville, Chris and Nick began to audition singers and picked up where they left off in KY. After another year and a number of shows with various singers, they continued their search. Then Jason Fox, an energetic singer from Baltimore, MD answered an Internet ad for an audition.

Jason Fox was born in Albany, NY and grew up listening to hip-hop and Michael Jackson. As a kid, he was known to use his break dancing skills (and a cardboard box) to earn money for junk food. At th

Vintage Radio Gods - Life on the Interstate

Written By: Jason Fox

I've been on this Interstate a little too long now
I've been passing by exits day by day
All these roads seem to lead to the same place
And all my shit seems to stay the same

Have my decisions been so wrong
I just need to understand my expedition

Where I am now is where I need to be
Extraordinary people doing extra ordinary things
We are extraordinary, don't you think
I don't appeal to you
That's OK baby, you can have it that way

Never knowing, but always knowing
It will always work out in the end
This game I am understanding
These experiences are molding who I am

Vintage Radio Gods - Burn Out

Written By: Nick Hatter/Chris Hatter/Jason Fox

You're feeling lowdown and going insane
Because you've found out you're losing your game
Somehow you go on, you try to behave
You're not the guilty one who lies and deceives

You can only go so far before the light burns out
And you're completely lost in the dark now

You're feeling lowdown and going insane
Here comes the Madman inside of your brain
No use in trying, you'll never break free
Your power's gone, it's on to me

Getting through can be more than you can take
It's all relative and each mind at stake (x2)

Vintage Radio Gods - Merry Go 'Round

Written By: Jason Fox

Can the sun shine on these days of despair
Or are these strengths gained, baby
Through these rays of golden air, yeah

Cleanse my mind

Can the mood change with just a snap
Oh baby, baby - my little baby
Can we get back to our younger past, yeah

Can I get, can I get off this Merry Go 'Round
This merry go 'round that goes around and around (x2)

Cleanse my dizzy mind

Now that I'm drinking it's fine, you can do it
I don't mind things are blurry
And now I'm shaking and I think I'm dying

Can I get, can I get...

Vintage Radio Gods - This World Is Mine

Written By: Chris Hatter

If you come in here
Let me make it clear
I make all the rules
And you can win or lose

If it's all too much for you
Then just step out of the line
So be careful what you do
Because this world you see is mine

Should you choose to stay
Heed to what I say
So make up your mind
You're running out of time

...Because this world is mine

Next in line!

...This world you see is mine
It will always be mine
