“Inspired by the likes of The Trews and The Glorious Sons, Chase The Bear, given time and resources, could join the ranks of these successful Canadian rock bands.” - Darrell Gilmour
— Vice President, Macklam Feldman Management
Chase The Bear is a rock and roll band from Vancouver, BC that mixes catchy hooks, roaring electric guitars, and hard-hitting rhythms inspired by classic rock with influences of indie, soul, R&B, and pop.
The outfit has been playing in the southern end of the province since 2015, starting by busking on the streets of Victoria after brothers Troy and Leo Gilmore and childhood friends Connor Brooks and Braedan Royer moved from Fort St. John, B.C. with the dream to turn music into a career. They quickly gained recognition for their catchy original music and singer Troy's bluesy, powerhouse voice before picking up keyboardist Kevin Parker and guitarist Jordan Phillips and moving to Vancouver.
Chase The Bear has played over 100 self-booked shows from Victoria to Thunder Bay and everywhere with a stage in between, including a sold-out show opening for The Trews at the Commodore Ballroom. Shortly after the milestone of a show, the band released their debut “Chase The Bear'' EP in 2018, which raised $3000 on crowdfunding platform Indiegogo, tripling their modest $1000 goal.
A band of blood brothers, childhood friends, and musical prodigies, Chase The Bear shows unrivaled chemistry on stage with tasty harmonies, duelling guitar solos, and an explosion of talent, passion, and youthful energy, showing that this isn’t a rock n’ roll revival band - Chase The Bear is a whole new animal ready to take the world by storm.
