Christian Pop / Rock
Chaney is a Christian rock band on the rise, they have taken their gifts and talents and put together a Rock/worship project that gives a raw look into the ups and downs of a life led by Christ. May it be in writing and creating, performing or just to get through every day life, Chaney follows the message in Philippines 4:13, " For I can do everything with the help of Christ who gives me strength. "This is the Lord's band, we are just along for the ride!"
A Band With a Purpose Chad Chaney moved to Austin three years ago, when he got called out of a life of "selfish dreams" in the acting business, when the Lord gave him a real purpose of his life. Chad moved from Melrose to Austin that very week, knowing no one here, and he took his first leadership position in a singles ministry. He knew from the first worship service that he was put on this earth to outwardly worship the King of Kings.
Chad soon met up with Dewayne and Jay, and the band CHANEY was born. The band now includes Chad - lead vocals, lyrics, acoustic guitar; Dewayne Morris on electric guitar and lead guitar; Jay Jayasuriya playing keyboards, piano and providing back-up vocals; William Rutschman on the drums, and Jason Kraft playing bass. The music they play is that of Christian rock, but like Switchfoot, the band members state that their music "appeals to anybody". Chad states that lyrically, CHANEY is about the struggle of everyday life and the redemption found in our lives?
"Life is a journey, a beautiful journey"
