More About Chad:

Chad Browne-Springer is an audiovisual artist from East Hartford, Connecticut. He has released a multitude of genre-hopping compositions, continuously defying the compartmentalization of artists of color. Growing up, Chad dove into multiple musical quests, having some classical, musical theater, and jazz vocal training. With a developing interest in instruments, he started to fuse these different elements into a unique sound of his own. His first statement to the world was what some would call “Frank Ocean meets John Mayer” — an acoustic EP entitled Hi I’m Chad.

Following the intrigue of this project, Chad picked up a new “instrument,” FL Studio, which opened up a new world of crossing genres. Creating the new sound “E.R.B” (Electronica and R&B), he made a second statement displaying his wide array of tastes and potential on the full-length album The Wonders of the Wanderer. Subsequently, Chad released a body of work entitled Miscellaneous Morsecode: Frequency, which highlights Chad’s virtuoustic arrangements, boundless sound palette, and sampling acuity.

More recently, Chad has taken a more attentive look at vocal manipulations and harmonic stacking/looping — prominent elements in his upcoming album Love’s Letter. The project follows an extensive “couchspedition” that Chad embarked on in the summer of 2017. Traveling around six states in two months found the creative nomad seeking a testament to his hosts, friends and loved ones.

Chad is an active participant in The People Project, as well as the frontman in the New Haven psychedelic R&B group Phat A$tronaut, who recently released their acclaimed debut record The Fifth Dimension.
