Nineteen year-old Utah based singer songwriter Chase Kroesche (pronounced Kro-sha) has just released the video for his new single, ‘1-2-3.’  The single comes along at a good time as the weather changes.  Its easygoing, poppy melody and infectious chorus are sure to make it a favorite among Chase’s younger audiences on those Spring and Summer vacations; especially his younger female audiences.  The video sees Chase performing his song on the city streets and in a sunny park.  It’s just Chase, his guitar, and his surroundings.  It can be viewed online now at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q8g6F98BJ0o.

Kroesche is currently completing a degree in Popular Music at the USC Thornton School of Music.  He is also prepping to release his new EP this year.  It includes the song, ‘Satellite.’ Kroesche collaborated with producer Brian Howes (Nickeblack, Daughtry) on the song.  Before embarking on a professional music career, he was a nationally ranked tennis player at the young age of thirteen.  He earned a scholarship to the prestigious Berklee College of Music and even started touring at fourteen.  He even performed with Frank Zappa’s saxophonist Napoleon Murphy Brock and David Bowie guitarist Earl Slick.  This was all before he had graduated high school.  Now he embarks on the next leg of his career with the impending release of his EP and eventually debut full length record.

After checking out Kroesche’s new video, fans can also go to his official Facebook page—http://www.facebook.com/ChaseKroesche–and “Like” him there to get all the latest news on his projects and more.  Fans can also follow him on his official website, http://www.chasetheband.com
