Native Utahn Chase Kroesche (pronounced Kro-sha), 19, is currently living in Los Angeles and has just unleashed "1-2-3," his first major single release.

His hard work led to a scholarship at Boston's prestigious Berklee College of Music; touring by the age of 14; awards at the Peaks Jazz Festival in Utah; gigs at L.A.'s infamous Whisky; and performances with Frank Zappa saxophonist Napoleon Murphy Brock and David Bowie guitarist Earl Slick — not bad for a high school kid. Now, even as he works toward his degree in popular music from the USC Thornton School of Music, Chase will, in 2013, release his follow-up EP, featuring "Satellite," a collaboration with hit producer-songwriter Brian Howes (Nickelback; Daughtry).
