Biography

Chad Kichula Artist Biography


“It’s a constant drive. I’m always driving things forward…enjoying and playing the music.”
Chad Kichula
On His Own
In 2005, Chad Kichula sold his truck to pay for his first album. The result was a self-titled americana/roots-rock album that displayed Chad’s development as a songwriter. With songs such “Sierra Leone”, Kichula showed he could craft lyrics and tell a story; just as Springsteen and Earle had. By working hard pruning and cutting trees by day, Chad was now clearing the way to cut his tracks and developed as a songwriter. It was now time to shake the world up a bit.

The EPs
In 2007, Chad went into the studio to record a three song EP entitled Better in the Morning. Released later that same year, it featured acoustic compositions which Chad was already playing on the road. The debut single off the EP, “Never Seen the Ocean” would be a breakout song for Chad in early 2008 when he sent it a radio promoter in Los Angeles. The song would chart at #15 on the AC/Hot AC spins chart as well as #22 on the Hot 100 Singles chart and in the process receive thousands of spins on college radio stations in the US.

Chad followed Better in the Morning with another three song EP in 2008, World Shaker. The title track was a heavy dose of roots-rock inspired by the drama film Cool Hand Luke. World Shaker had a perfect mix of Folk, Blues and Country and exemplified Chad’s influence from albums like Nebraska. The two other tracks on World Shaker, “Another Love” and “Gotta’ Hold on Me” displayed Chad’s variety in style and lyrical craft all within their catchy acoustic rifts.
