It’s 5 o’clock somewhere – ‘Happy Hour Sessions’ with George Chase Jr. of The Sublets

George Chase Jr. has been a very busy man. Not only have he and his wife recently welcomed a daughter into their family, his band The Sublets just released their newest single “Misunderstood”, and he has also been working extremely hard on one of his newest projects, “Happy Hour Sessions”.

The groundbreaking weekly YouTube series provides an inside view into the common curiosity about how songs are written and pulls back the curtain on the songwriting process and the artists behind the music in entertaining, insightful, and humorous 30-minute weekly episodes. In each episode, George Chase Jr. welcomes a talented co-star, and the two will write and record a song within a few hours while chatting about music and enjoying a few cocktails. The pair will write every song from scratch using a randomly selected song to spark inspiration.

Happy Hour Sessions provides a journey into the songwriting process while getting to know the artists themselves in a fun and laidback environment. Watch Happy Hour Sessions weekly to see what happens when a couple of musicians get into a room, enjoy some drinks, talk about life, all while writing a song together” Chase says.

Conversation, insight, and humor fill each episode, and a final song recording wraps the show. The diverse group of artists featured in the series include an up-and-coming pop star, a touring member of a national blues rock band, an American Idol finalist, and more. Original music created during the show represents a variety of genres, ranging from rock and country to ballads and love songs.

Born in Scotland, raised in the United States, based in Chicago. Ian Bardecki is a professional photographer, avid motorcyclist, reader, IT geek, gaming and comic book nerd, who was bathed in music at a young age by his mother who constantly played classical piano in their home. While she also introduced him to the Beatles and Elvis, his father forced on him Hank Williams and Johnny Cash, the local paper boy had him listening to Alice Cooper, his uncle then turned him onto KISS and his first 8 track tape, while his friends turned him onto punk music. Today, his music library ranges from Amadeus Mozart to ZZ Ward and everything in between. Hesitantly agreeing to fill in one night to photograph a concert at a local venue in San Francisco for a friend, was where the accidental love and passion for concert photography was born and hasn’t stopped growing since. As a freelance photographer, Ian has had the honor of working with various artists like, John 5, Sick Puppies, Scott Stapp, Drowning Pool, Anti-Flag and Art of Dying, just to name a few.
