Chaz Chambers is thrilled to announce the release of his debut album, Coastal, available everywhere on December 8th.
About the Album
Coastal has been in Chaz´s mind for many years. Though the actual music is totally different now, the concept has remained similar. Basically, Chaz feels inspired artistically by coastal regions. The ocean, the water sounds, the fresh air, etc. And so did his grandmother, Gloria, who passed many years ago. “You could say she was the bedrock of artistry in my family.”
So, Coastal is about what inspires Chaz, his grandmother, and some of the themes used throughout the album. This is quite evident in the music video Chaz made for the song Sea (formerly By The Sea), which was made mostly from his Icelandic coastal footage. It gives the connection between coastal landscape visuals and ambient/post-rock music.
Coastal appears as Chaz Chambers’ debut album after his previous Eps Colored World –released in April of 2015-, and Apatheia –released in January 2017-. The phonogram is made up of 8 songs from a fairly diverse and experimental musical bill. Coastal brings together the varied musical references received by Chaz during the last few years of his musical career.
Each song has a special story that is revealed through music. Essential production elements stand out such as the variety of styles that are combined in the experimental sound of the album; the collaborations of artists from different parts of the world; and the peculiar recording process between independent studios in Cuba and the United States.

Who is Chaz Chambers?
Chaz A. Chambers started learning music at the age of just seven years old, later going on to play in a number of metal bands throughout his high school years that toured all over the southeastern U.S. After graduating from the Atlanta Institute of Music and Media in March 2012 he toured the world as a professional drummer on various cruise ships.
Chaz’s professional training in the world of music has been dynamic and diverse. He has had the ability to successfully combine his skills as a musician, drummer, composer, producer, marketer, instructor, and entrepreneur. The musical quality of his work is reflected in his performance in a large number of musical shows in the United States and other countries around the world.
One of Chaz´s biggest accomplishments as a musician is his experience touring and performing drums with Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey’s Greatest Show on Earth. He was the last drummer to ever play on Ringling Bros Red Unit. Chaz performed over 500 shows in just over a year and a half with the world famous circus.
In addition, Chaz has managed to combine his musical career with his traveling nature, and his successful ventures in the field of the tourism industry. This resulted in the creation of the travel agencies Havana Music Tours and Musical Getaways. Both offer interesting travel offers focused on musical artistic experiences around the world.
The artist has always expressed a strong interest in world music beyond his hometown of Atlanta. This sideline has led him to create solid professional and personal ties with the musical cultures of countries such as Cuba, Colombia, Brazil, etc.
Chaz is currently promoting his latest musical production Coastal while living part-time between the United States and Cuba with his wife. His compositions can be found on platforms such as Bandcamp, iTunes, Apple Music, Spotify, Pandora, Tidal, and many more.

“…lyrics are particularly reflective and thoughtful in a deeply human way”.Rebecca Cullen, Stereo Stickman
“Chaz Chambers has released a beautiful new track called “Hopeful” The music in this track is catchy and sort of sad, but it does make you feel good at the same time, the lyrics are beautiful too.”Denise Sherod, Reignland
“Chambers connection to music has always gone beyond acting. His intense humanist, socialist and revolutionary feelings made composition his primary means of expression. The fight against injustice, racism and social inequality is a constant in his music. Chaz´s artistic premise is to create a social message that helps change human thought towards the formation of a more united, just and humane society”.Your Music Review
“This is been a long journey, but a fun one! I am already ready to start writing more stuff… Actually, I already have some things in the works. I want to give a shout out to all the people who played on my album. It would not have sounded so great without so many amazing musicians, both from the United States and Cuba.”Chaz Chambers
