Chad Traxler is a singer/songwriter based in Colorado Springs. Rhythmic, yet introspective, Chad’s style reflects his love of both classic and indie rock. One popular musician described Chad’s lyrics as “beautiful yet bittersweet.” Musical pedigree runs deep in Chad’s Midwestern roots. His cousins, The Carter Family, could always be heard in the Traxler house growing up. (June Carter was Johnny Cash’s wife.) This explains the classic country overtones in Chad’s guitar rhythms. Chad is currently collaborating with Talia Jade, a cellist, and percussionist who recently performed in Carnegie Hall. In addition to Chad’s originals, the duo covers a wide range of genres – rock, pop, country, and Latin – in their own unique, acoustic style.
