Hailing from Oceanside, California, the complex artistry of the progressive rock collective known as CHON is one of the most interesting in music today. While remaining heavily influenced by heavy metal and post-hardcore acts, members of the band find inspiration in jazz composers such as Hiromi Uehara and Tigran Hamasyan. CHON is also known for curating their original vibrations in atypical time signatures and often utilize polyrhythms to create their compositions.
The band's first two studio albums in Grow (2015) and Homey (2017) have received raved reviews and were both critically-acclaimed bodies of work in the progressive rock community as CHON ditched the traditional aspect of modern-day music by remaining mostly instrumental and remaining non-reliant on vocal tracks. Now, the four-man band is preparing to release their third LP self-titled as, CHON on June 7. In combination with the release of their latest musical offering, CHON will be headlining their own live production alongside DOMi and JD Beck at the beginning of June.
