Chief (the band)

Mar 14th, 2010 in Music

We recently checked out the splendiferous Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros and had the fortune of catching the opening band, Chief.  Jeffrey of Club Mercy let us know that Alex (Sharpe) was touting the band so we made sure to catch their set.  While Chief isn’t breaking any musical ground (yet), they play with verve on well-crafted songs graced with compelling lyrics and hammering (3 or 4-part) harmonies.  After their set, hirsute guitarist, Danny Fujikawa, mentioned their impending new longplayer, but his face lit up when I said I’d prefer to hear their “less-polished” EP.  Next thing I know, Danny slips out to their van and brings me their stellar five-song EP.  At times they remind of the Band and at others I hear Bruce Cockburn vocals.  Regardless a band to keep track of.

Check out their song Nice People below and the video of Your Direction at the Deep Six Club TV link further below.
