Chance Emerson is a 20-year-old Taiwanese-American singer-songwriter from Hong Kong based in Providence, RI.

 

In 2017, Emerson posted his self-produced EP, recorded in his high school music building’s attic, to his Facebook and Instagram. The word spread, local radio got on board, the EP ascended the iTunes charts, and over the past few years, songs from The Indigo Tapes have racked up more than a million Spotify plays. 

Chance followed up his EP in 2020 with a full album, The Raspberry Men. Emerson plays almost everything you hear on The Raspberry Men, mostly recorded in a wooden shed in Maine. The album premiered on NPR-partner station WICN and received praise from American Songwriter, The Providence Journal, Spotify’s Indie Shuffle playlist, The South China Morning Post, Atwood Magazine, Ditty TV, The Deli and more. In December 2020, Earmilk selected The Raspberry Men as one of its best indie/alternative albums of 2020.
