Biography

Looking to the sky is all some can do – but not for Chad Sugg.  This all-American has turned his dream-like world into a reality filled with hope and happiness.  By the age of 18, Sugg knew that there was more to life than dorm rooms and frat parties. When a simple side project that once passed the time between classes began to evolve into an incomparable passion, Sugg said goodbye to the textbooks and hit the road under a new alias: Backseat Goodbye.

Sugg has come a long way from the being the little boy growing up in Tennessee that was once intrigued and inspired by the sheet music hidden in his aunt’s old piano bench.  Always ready to accomplish a new challenge – Sugg began teaching himself how to play the piano at age 11.  Soon after learning his first instrument, he found himself picking up an guitar and doing just the same.  Now 23 years old, Sugg has gone on to master the drums, banjo, bass, and even the mandolin.  The ever-evolving musician found his earliest musical creations channeling his biggest musical influence, Bright Eyes, and has since taken the emotionally sincere lyrical qualities of this inspiration and blended them with his own unique disposition of optimism and content. 

In just five short years, the charismatic Sugg has used simplicity, sincerity, and smiles to gain the approval of the music world.

    I've been listening to Chad for almost 4 years now, and it is nice to see his music evolve and progress. I'm exicited to hear his new full length. The only problem is, I feel he is grouped in and compared with shitty musicians like Chase Coy and Never Shout Never, when he is much better than those dudes. Oh well...
