Chad has been singing, playing guitar and writing songs for most of his life. Playing in original band projects from Boston to Colorado, on the road and locally. He has recorded three original albums and has toured extensively throughout the country.
His main original project, Rockspring is a multi-genre act, bringing the best of Bluegrass, Americana, Folk and Rock musicians together to back Chad's eclectic songwriting. The high-energy "rockgrass" that the band creates is infecting. The sound is unique and witty and the songs range from the light-hearted to the dark and provoking. All the while, almost forcing the listener to dance to the sound.
Chad's roots stem back to his early days in school and church choirs and bands, playing with his family around the campfire and jamming with friends at school. His songwriting often finds its charge from life experiences, but also digs deep into the imagination of this crafty wordsmith. Many of the songs have a vivid sense of humor and others a poignant sadness, both of which his fans relate to and have come to expect and grow anxious for.
