alright, so this one is an old favorite. and by old i mean this song was made before i’d barely even begun high school 😳 it’s from my first album (the flashbacks), and i’ve been picking it up again lately for my upcoming show @sofarsoundsla 😘 this saturday night i’ll be playing a few suuuupperrr stripped down tunes of mine like this @ a secret location 🤫 if you’re in the los angeles area, you can click the link in my bio for tix 🤗 • • p.s. very grateful for all the people who walked by me recording this in the hallway without giving me weird looks - college is good y’all 💛😂

just me + some sunshine + the sounds of the city ☀️ • each week, i bring in a new “songwriter of the week” to my 2nd and 3rd graders 🎶 not too long ago, we learned about johnny cash & i’ve had this song stuck in my head ever since... 🔥

☀️ since there are lots of new faces around here lately, i thought i’d re-introduce myself 😊 my name is chandler, and i’m a 19 year old singer songwriter and music industry student at the university of southern california ❤️✌️i currently have 2 EP albums + 1 single on spotify (link in bio) + other music streaming/download services, and i’m working on getting more music to you every chance i get 🌟 i’ve been writing my own music since i was 12 years old, and i play piano, guitar, and ukulele! ✨ i started my instagram a few years into my journey, and it’s kept such wonderful milestones for me as i’ve grown into the musician i am today (remember when instagram videos were only 15 seconds??? we’ve come a long way...) 🎙 i’ve also taught music to a few dozen students over the last 5 years, and it has totally helped shaped me into the artist i am today 🎵 i’m bilingual (español 😉), but i don’t like spicy foods... 🌶 i’m originally from texas, so i do like super warm weather & a bit of yoga + surfing whenever i get the chance 🌊 jack johnson (@jackjohnson) is my all-time fave & probably the biggest inspiration for the music i create, but i also really love carole king (@carole_king) alanis morissette (@alanis) & norah jones (@norahjones) 🏄‍♀️ i’m a sucker for a good love song, and after 7 years i still haven’t gotten sick of them! 💛 i’ve been really blessed to be able to combine two of my favorite things (🎶+🧘‍♀️) on instagram with some fantastic yogis like @yogoskenz, @casa_colibri, @erinkellyart, @martina__rando & many more! these partnerships have brought many of you to my music & i am so grateful you are here! i’m always open to yoga + music collabs, so let me know if you’d ever like to flow to some of my tunes 🤗 namaste 💕

☀️ although i’ve been spending a lot of time studying in california lately, home for me is wayyyyy back in texas! 🤠 growing up that far south meant being surrounded by country music (and A LOT of it!) 🎶 i’ll always have a soft spot for a cowboy love song... 💛 because of country, i’ve always seen songwriting primarily as storytelling - a way to take someone on a journey to share glimpses of experience ✨ this comes out in some of my songs more than others (and tends to be the kind of music i like listening to most)! • • moving halfway across the country is tough y’all, but it makes you realize and appreciate the little things that made you who you are 💛 here’s a little bit i came up with that has to do with that very sentiment 😊 enjoy!!

many of you may not know that alongside my own music, i’ve taught music to kids for the past 5 years! 🎹 with piano, ukulele, and songwriting from ages 5-65 i’ve had the pleasure of teaching about a dozen students (some which i still teach today!!)🌟 i loooove kiddos + they keep me so grounded in who i am while reminding me what i love about music 😊 • • recently i was hired to teach music to 2nd and 3rd graders at an elementary school here in LA ✨ i’ve been having an absolute blast teaching them about songwriting! this week’s songwriter is julieta venegas & i’ll be playing this little clip of her song “me voy” for them in class tomorrow as an example 🎶 • • insider info: this actually isn’t the first time i’ve posted this song.... bonus points if you can find the original!!! 😉

ooh man. school hit HARD this week & i’m just now getting to grab some instruments again !!! nonetheless, yknow ive got a few new (exciting) things in the works & can’t waitttt to share them with ya 💕 this one’s a chorus from an original from not too far back - it’s a love song for my best friend called “nothing without u” 🌟

been noodling around with some new ideas lately + thought u might would like to hear ((-: • • sometimes my brain gets stuck on one particular person, or place, or event & then decides to have said thing reappear in my dreams every night!! it’s a terrible habit really, and this is my latest attempt to clean out some of that subconscious goop 🙄 my dreams have a HUGE effect on my day to day life, so the weird ones can really put a damper on my day 🤭 • • if you like this (or just songwriting in general) you should come to The Hotel Cafe on Monday to hear me + more songwriters do things like this 🎶 dm me for deets!
