Jesse Woodard IV, Born & Raised on the West Bank of New Orleans, LA, 27 year old Artist and Producer Chase N. Cashe has always viewed the world in his own way. After getting his start in the music business in 2003 Chase N. Cashe continued to work his way up the success ladder moving to LA in 2006 which led to him meeting Grammy award winning producer Chauncey "Hit-Boy" Hollis and forming the renown production team Surf Club.

After a brief stint with Polow Da Don's label Zone 4 Inc. Chase N. Cashe set out to pursuit his lifelong goal of being an Artist / Producer. In 2011 his debut album "Gumbeaux" introduced him as a diverse musical threat here to provide the Hip-Hop Soul that has been lacking in this generation.

His follow up mixtape "The Heir Up There" hosted by DJ Drama helped him reach an opening spot on the "Club Paradise" tour with Drake, ASAP Rocky, & Kendrick Lamar.

Releasing his album "CHARM" in 2012, for his first official release under the Crown Bearer Records imprint, Chase continued to show growth in his songwriting and production ability as well as branding ability as an independent artist. His mixtape "Heir Waves" and EP "Cashe Rules" continued his hard work in 2013.

Incorporating a musical melange that relies on introspection over industry standard uninspired punch lines, Chase's music serves as a satisfying palette enhancer. Opting to travel the road less traveled by pretentious industry peers, Chase N. Cashe keeps an even keel with realistic rhymes about matters of the heart, mind, & bank account.

With his forthcoming album "The Best There Is..." releasing on 12.13.14 via iTunes, Chase intends to place himself where he rightfully belongs on the musical totem pole. Handling the bulk of the production, along with Tha Bizness helping to executive produce, puts Chase in a league of his own.



2011: Gumbeaux[edit]

Chase N. Cashe's debut album as a rapper, Gumbeaux, was released on March 8, 2011. The title is pronounced Gumbo.
