Chase Foster has been called a prodigy. This is the only way to really describe this young man and his wealth of musical talent. When asked how it all began, he will tell you that it came from his upbringing- his grandpa, his family, and other legendary influences. This 19-year-old singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist was born in Bartlesville, Oklahoma. Spending his early years in Pawhuska and Ponca City, Oklahoma, its easy to see that he has southern roots.
It was at the age of 9 when Chase decided he would join the school orchestra. He had always had his eye on the violin. His grandpa, who is an accomplished musician, thought this would be the perfect opportunity to expose Chase to some of his favorite music: Western Swing. Chase began to listen and learn about Bob Wills and the Texas Playboys, Johnny Gimble, Cindy Walker, Asleep at the Wheel, and many other swing legends. It was then that his violin became a fiddle. His grandpa had only one request: learn Faded Love. No problem—just a matter of hours!...
