After the Chase is an American Christian acoustic rock band. The band was founded by husband and wife duo Nathan and Jenna Strong in 2003, in Petaluma, California. Current members of the band include drummer & percussionist Gary Huntsman, and bass player Matthew Nalywaiko.

Musical career

Nathan and Jenna started playing together in local coffee shops and churches in northern California. In March 2004, they released their first album, self-titled After the Chase. They began touring across the country, with no recording contract, playing their songs wherever and whenever they could. They released their first radio single "Run" from this album.[1]

Their second album Make Me New was released in March 2008, and received many favorable reviews.[2][3][4] Produced by Nate Sabin (who has produced albums for Sara Groves, Jason Gray and others) the album featured musicians such as Steve Brewster (drums), George Cocchini (electric guitar), Jeff Roach (keyboards), Matt Patrick, Phil Madeira, Aaron Fabbrini, Nate Sabin, Matt Pierson (bass), Marc Anderson (percussion), Staci Frenes (backing vocals), Lori Sabin (backing vocals), John Catchings (strings) and Faith Miller (violin).

This album is unique in Christian music in that it features several waterphone parts, played by Jenna Strong.

It featured several singles, including "Make Me New", and "I'll be a Fool". "I'll be a Fool" briefly charted in the CRW top 30 Inspo/Soft AC category in late 2008.[5]

Their third album, "You Are My Child" was released in June 2011. Another full length album of all original material, it was produced by Mitch Dane (JJ Heller, Jars of Clay), it features guitar tracks played by Steve Mason of Jars of Clay, as well as Matt Pierson returning on the bass.
