THE SAM CHASE & THE UNTRADITIONAL
The Sam Chase & The Untraditional hails from San Francisco, California. This juggernaut of a band blends rock n roll with folk music while maintaining the sensibilities and attitudes that come from growing up on a healthy diet of punk rock. 

​The leader of the band is The Sam Chase himself, a natural storyteller with a voice that sounds as if it has weathered many an epic tale.  With boot-stomping orchestration and lyrics that have been immortalized on the tattooed skin of their fans, The Sam Chase & The Untraditional doesn’t mess around. 

These are the warriors we need in these troubled times.


HILLSTOMP
Hillstomp is a 2-man band comprised of Henry Hill Kammerer and John Johnson. Henry plays guitar and banjo like a hurricane, and if you close your eyes you’d swear he’s playing 2 parts at once. John Johnson beats mercilessly on his drums, with the fury of a demon loose from hell. Once you get past the pure ferocity of his playing, you notice the parts are intricately crafted patterns that provide the  framework for Kammerer’s guitar and banjo sorcery.  

The whole thing started as a love letter of sorts to North Mississippi blues played by the likes of RL  Burnside and Junior Kimbrough. It first caught on in college towns like Eugene and Olympia, but soon  bigger cities got it as well. The band stayed there for a few years and then started to morph - adding  banjo and writing more and more of their own music. The fast and loud songs kept coming, but now  they were interspersed with ballads and slow-burners to give the sweat-soaked dancers a chance to  breathe. They have set out on national headlining tours, tore their way through Europe a few times,  and opened for many of their heroes along the way.  

Hillstomp sounds like a boom box blasting from a shopping cart. Two madmen have strapped an  engine to the cart and it’s too big and running too hot. They've got a banjo and a megaphone, a  washboard and a kick drum. They've stocked the cart with guitars, buckets, car parts, and microphones  and they are hurtling towards a blown out bridge while the bad front wheel flaps manically. The fools  think they can jump the bridge and land safely on the other side. They are very wrong but no one has  told them because...well, they just seem so happy. And there you are, bouncing alongside them and  deep down you hope they make it. Hillstomp is folk music in its purest form – from loud and gritty, to  intricate and poignant, and most importantly, always heartfelt and true.

    "I love Sam Chase. He’s got mischievous eyes and a booming voice. He’s a clever songsmith and a dazzling performer. He was born in the punk scene and raised on the back of Merle Haggard and John Prine and was given dollops of Woody Guthrie in his oatmeal. He’s sensitive and gruff at the same time in equal doses. I call him sensigruff. His voice is so powerful he could’ve cut through the noise on the floor of The New York Stock Exchange in the height of the 80s. Everyone would’ve just shut their pie-holes and listened to what the man had to say. Sam Chase is an American original and a welcome card carrying member of the united family of songwriting troubadours. God bless you Sam Chase."
