Name: Chanter’s Alley
Country: South Korea
Formed in: 2011
The band was formed in Seoul, South Korea in June of 2011 by John Middlemis, Bryan Suechting, Do JoongMo, John Grady, and Kim DooHwan. They played their first show on July 2 at Club FF in Hongdae. Shortly thereafter, John Grady left the band to raise his son in Canada and was replaced by Trevor Gardner. The new line up stepped up the pace immediately, writing new songs and playing concerts every other weekend.
In December 2011, Chanter’s Alley began recording their EP, “Broken”, which they produced independently. However, over the course of the recording, the band encountered many setbacks including losing both Korean members. After finding replacements, they hit the clubs and have since been playing gigs around Korea.
Starting in late 2012, after several temporary member changes, Joongmo and Doohwan came back to the band. Unfortunately Bryan had to leave Korea but he was replaced by Yumi on the bass.
