Conversations with George Chase, Jr. of The Sublets

Today we’d like to introduce you to George Chase, Jr. of The Sublets.

Hi George, please kick things off for us with an introduction to yourself and your story.
Life has a way of taking one down unintended paths, and for me, this manifested as a series of detours coupled with a several years hiatus from music. After a serendipitous opportunity thrust me back onto the stage, the fire was rekindled within me, and I decided to pursue my musical calling full-time. In 2018 I sought to form a pop-punk/rock band, and The Sublets were born. The band refined its sound and its lineup over the past few years and ultimately arrived as the fun, fast, and infectious power-pop-rock band you can experience today.

We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
Our journey was definitely not as smooth as some, but still way easier than others. We got lost chasing our sound and identity. We had so much talent in the group that we weren’t sure how to best utilize it. At one point, we had three lead singers, we were playing disco-inspired songs next to punk tunes in our sets, we had beautiful harmonies that sounded angelic…but it landed us in a weird spot where we looked at each other and said, “We sound like a wedding band playing covers of different songs”….we wanted to get back to basics and focus on the core of what we are: a pop-punk/rock band. And we’re thrilled with where we’re at today.

Thanks – so what else should our readers know about your work and what you’re currently focused on?
We specialize in making butt-shaking rock ‘n roll. We work hard and are grateful to the people who support us and for the opportunities, we are given. Whether there’s two or 2,000 in the audience, we give each performance our all.

We all have a different way of looking at and defining success. How do you define success?
That’s a tough one. I try not to get too ahead of myself. I focus on putting one foot in front of the other and just do the work everyday. When I was younger, I used to dream about big stages and fame and would have told you those things equal success. But today, I just want to work hard and give people some happiness, even if just for a brief moment in time. If when I die, I leave the world a better place than how I came into it, then I’d consider that a success.
