"truly outstanding..... a pleasure to listen to" (4.5/5) - Pure M
Started in 2014, Chase the River just a bunch of tunes written by Stuart Lunn. Starting out as an acoustic duo, it is now evolved into the powerhouse of big hooks and big sound that has toured Europe and the US. Constantly developing and evolving the sound, partly on a mission of honing the Chase the River show, and partly, almost more importantly, on a journey of pissing off my die-hard fans, to see how far I can push the envelope before they think I have gone completely mad.
In truth, I am not exactly one for grand sweeping statements about who I am or why you should spend your money on me. Don't get me wrong, I am a musician, every penny literally helps with things like food.
So what do you get?
A hard as hell working musician. I write I record, I tour. I take the piss solidly out of Donald Trump on Twitter (if you actually like him, please please PLEASE know that we will unlikely like each other). I promote peace and love and good times. I occasionally drink to excess. I smoke quite a bit.
Beyond that, I am always looking to make the best music I can. A lot of people who see me play think I am pretty damn good at it. So I keep doing it. In 2018 a brand new, slightly disturbed version of Chase the River is coming out. After my last USA tour, I made a lot of new music, it is very melodic, it is very synth driven. And it is f**king awesome. I wouldn't lie about that, I am seriously proud of it. Anyway, you can buy tickets, read my latest musings. If you want more sarcasm, follow me on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram. Until then, Thank you for stopping by and welcome to Chase the River.
