Biography

Seattle, United States

The music of Seattle based band Hurricane Chaser feels like the experience of déjà vu…new yet strangely familiar. This feeling is given voice in the
song “Racing a River”, the opening track off their 2009 debut, The Map Is Not The Territory.

“I’ve seen this place before / standing at the intersection / of a
dream and a memory”

It is this crossroads between dream and memory that pervades much of Brad Zeffren’s writing on this record, with many lines evoking the sentiment that a memory, while constantly shifting, is the only thing a person can ever really own. Tied to this idea is the notion that in our pursuits we often miss what we’re really looking for, lost in the conflict between ambition
and happiness. The idea is best summed up in “Barricades”

“I never can surrender from the chase / So I’m running down
tomorrow / while today just passed me by”

Hurricane Chaser frames these lyrical ideas with music that is equal parts hypnotic, rustic, and rock ‘n roll. The songs are firmly grounded in the rich tradition of Americana that includes The Band, Neil Young and Townes Van Zandt, but when voiced by the members of the band they take on the more rhythmic elements of old-school latin and soul music.

The Map Is Not The Territory was produced by Brad Zeffren (Star Anna, Kristen Ward, Nathan Wade), and features band members Derek Pulvino on guitars, Nathan Spicer on keyboards, Ben Obee on bass and backing vocals, and Moises Padilla on drums.
