Happy Hour Sessions pulls back the curtain on the songwriting process and the artists behind the music in entertaining, insightful, and humorous 30-minute weekly episodes
The show is hosted by its creator, George Chase Jr., songwriter, musician, and lead singer of the indie alt rock band The Sublets.
In each episode, Chase welcomes a talented co-star, and the two will write and record a song within a few hours, while chatting about music and enjoying a few cocktails. The pair will write every song from scratch using a randomly selected song to spark inspiration.
“Happy Hour Sessions provides a journey into the songwriting process while getting to know the artists themselves in a fun and laidback environment,” Chase says. Conversation, insight, and humor fill each episode, and a final song recording wraps the show. The diverse group of artists featured in the series include an up-and-coming pop star, a touring member of a national blues rock band, an American Idol finalist, and more. Original music created during the show represents a variety of genres, ranging from rock and country to ballads and love songs.

Seasons One and Two will air back-to-back weekly for 16 weeks on YouTube, with two 30-minute episodes releasing on July 27, 2022. Season Three returns in the fall.
“Watch Happy Hour Sessions weekly to see what happens when a couple of musicians get into a room, enjoy some drinks, talk about life, all while writing a song together,” Chase says.
