The Skinny: Melodic, alternative rock quintet Chaser Eight recently released “Lead Me Down,” the first single from their first full-length album due to be released February 17, 2015. Lead vocalist and guitarist, *AUDRA*, worked with The Rolling Stones’ iconic former manager, Andrew Loog Oldham, on the production and arrangement of the songs, after impressing him during a live acoustic performance.

Inspired by Joan Jett, Foo Fighters and Alanis Morissette, Chaser Eight writes moody, guitar driven songs lead with soulful female vocals. Ever since the young age of ten, singer, *AUDRA*, and guitarist, Pat Walsh, have been writing songs together and released their first EP, Late Night Companions, in 2012. Chaser Eight writes about many relatable topics – darkness, love, loss and partying – making it easy for listeners to connect with the raw, passionate lyrics. Make sure to check out their forthcoming self-titled full length album in early 2015.
