Nashville, TN -- (May 28, 2008) – The Agency for the Performing Arts (APA) proudly announces the signing of OMG Records’ recording artist Chasen to their Nashville based Christian music division. As the flagship artist for OMG Records, a division of OMG SportsEntertainmentMusic, Chasen’s debut album Shine Through The Stars hit shelves April 15th. Produced by award-winning producer Noel Golden (Matchbox 20, Edwin McCain) the album showcases the band’s inspirational brand of rootsy pop and the prolific, self-taught songwriting ability of the group’s namesake, Chasen Callahan.

The band struck gold early with the release of the album’s first single, “Crazy Beautiful.” The jangly, melodically-driven song about societal pressure to maintain a camera-perfect image at all cost, methodically worked its way up the radio charts eventually coming to rest for weeks in the #2 position.

Success on the road has come early and often for Chasen as well with the band sharing the stage with acts such as Relient K, NEEDTOBREATHE, Sister Hazel and Edwin McCain. Chasen plans to stay busy on the road this summer headlining dates of their own along with select appearances at fairs and festivals across the country.

“Chasen is one of those bands that you know you’re going to like two minutes into the first song,” said Mark Guynn, Head of the Christian Division for APA. “Their music is catchy and melodic yet lyrically compelling. We couldn’t be happier to be in business with both Chasen and OMG Records.”

“As with our distribution and publishing arrangement with EMI, we could have chosen no better home in our music enterprise than APA,” said Gene Krcelic, Principal Partner of OMG SportsEntertainmentMusic. “APA has not only proven their success in the marketplace over many, many years, but they have demonstrated to us progressive and innovative ideas for the future.”

With major offices in Beverly Hills, New York and Nashville, APA is one of the largest full service talent/literary agencies in the U.S., representing top artists in all genres of music, as well as theater, movie, and literary clients.
