Chase are a four piece band from Manchester. Originally a five, the
band has seen a number of changes since it's formation a few short
years ago. Frontman Stephen Scott is now responsible for rhythm
guitar as well as vocals, with Stephen Costelloe (bass), Len Ross
(lead) and Dave Shortt (drums) completing the current lineup.
Over the past few years The Chase have been relentlessly playing
gigs in and around the city of Manchester, only breaking this habit
to play in the final of the National Student Music Awards (in which
they finished as runners up) and to play the Hard Rock Cafe in
Birmingham. This wealth of live experience the band has attained has
resulted in The Chase moulding themselves into an irresistible live
act playing good, honest and exciting music.
The band are not afraid to wear their influences on their sleeves,
freely admitting to finding inspiration in such artists as The
Beatles, The Las, The Buzzcocks and Neil Young. This variety of
influences has been pivotal in creating the unmistakable and unique
sound that makes The Chase such a memorable act.
