Having originally met in Laguna Beach, singer Chase Johnson and drummer Nick Gross found success early together, thrust into the spotlight as featured characters on the MTV hit series, Laguna Beach. This led to countless sessions with acclaimed producers, successful touring, and notable TV appearances including one of the last performances on TRL. Bassist Evan Smith joined the equation only a few years’ later, bringing countless years of touring experience with Silversun Pickups, Chromeo, and Big Data. Classically trained guitarist Alex Asch quickly completed the quartet.
