My name is Chase Bader and I am originally from Birmingham, AL. In 2012 I founded the Nashville based rock/soul band Waker (formerly known as Koa) with several friends. Since then we have played huge festivals, including: Hangout, ACL, Firefly, SXSW, Wakarusa, and more, shared the stage with artists like JJ Grey & Mofro, Moon Taxi, and The Wailers, and begun developing a loyal following of fans across the US. Throughout this journey my Breedlove OM/MME Passport has been a vital part of our success. This model has not only defined my sound as an acoustic player, but has also helped define our sound as a band. I love the versatility I can achieve through playing a Breedlove guitar. There is such a delicate characteristic one can achieve in the softer songs while never lacking in drive and bite when needed for more upbeat, percussive tunes. No matter where I go, I know my Breedlove will be right there with me.
