The Sam Chase has a voice like a Nun on the lam with a mouthful cigarettes and curse words in a lonely bar, drunkenly dancing next to a broken jukebox. His songs are scribbled, not written, on lipstick and sweat stained motel bed sheets because he likes the way the ink bleeds. His guitar runs on diesel and leaks like the morning after too much whiskey. His is a show you’ll probably want to tattoo on your body so everyone will know that you knew him before he was cool.
Island of Black and White’s music is a sweet, humble yet raw blend of rock, funky reggae, and soulful blues; it is a mixture like no other. The duo, sometimes trio, and quintet, exerts high energy performances while traveling and frequenting local and out of town venues, restaurants, bars, coffee shops, music festivals, and various events.
