Chad Quist is a 30 year full-time professional on the West Coast music scene who is at home as a touring guy, session guitarist, producer, engineer and vocalist. After his early years in the Bay Area Chad attended the Berklee College of Music in Boston where he studied music theory, composition and guitar performance.

     After relocating to Seattle Chad was soon in demand by top local acts doing it all: Rock, Pop, Country, Fusion and Jazz. Highlights included performing with Kenny G, The Platters and Martha and the Vandellas. These experiences led to gigs opening shows for artists like Ray Charles, Tower Of Power, George Benson, Steve Miller, Rick Derringer, Diane Schuur, Lou Rawls, Larry Carlton, Huey Lewis and Diana Ross.

  In 1995 Chad began a decade-long association with MUZAK appearing on 1000 cover tunes on their Environmental Channel with more than 30 of his original compositions on worldwide rotation.

        In 1997 Chad landed a spot with Big Brother and the Holding Company (of Janis Joplin fame) and toured internationally. In 2007 after his (soon-to-be) stepson’s stint as a Top-Ten American Idol sensation, Chad returned to Southern California.

    Subsequent tours with Big Brother, Glenn Yarbrough and others have since brought him back to Europe, Thailand, Beijing, Hong Kong, Hawaii and Mexico playing on bills with Vanilla Fudge, Canned Heat, Jefferson Starship, Country Joe McDonald and Booker T and the MG’s.

    In addition to a demanding performance schedule Chad has traversed Africa playing with the Paul Allen Band and produced CDs for a number of independent artists, some of which have been picked up by Disney and ABC Television. His instrumental solo effort, "Mercury Messenger" was recently released by The Highlander Company Records at
