Growing up in Rochester, New York, Chaun Horton´s first introduction to music and drums was under the strict tutelage of his father, who conveniently also happened to be a church organist. With his father´s guidance and teaching, Chaun received the opportunity to play not only for his church, but other state choirs and events as well. This valuable experience allowed Chaun to become a drummer for the Monroe Community College Big Band in upstate New York, where he began performing at community events and studio recordings.
After attending a camp held by the LA Music Academy, Chaun found himself enrolling the following month on a full scholarship, where he has since graduated. The LA Music Academy is an intensive contemporary music education program founded in 1996 by a number of prominent LA-based players, who also have significant music education experience.
Chaun has had the privilege of sharing the stage with artist such as Macy Gray, Raphael Saadiq, Jessica Simpson, J´Davey, Doug E. Fresh, Tal Wilkenfeld, Geoffrey Keezer and many others, He is now the current drummer for International Pop artist Natasha Bedingfield as well as Colbie Caillat and is gearing up to take the stage on another world wide tour coming to a city near you.
