Renowned for his poignant songwriting and an electrifying stage presence, Peña unveiled
his latest single, “i am not who i was,” in September. The track swiftly struck a chord with
fans, amassing over 13 million global streams. The release marked yet another milestone
in what has already been a groundbreaking year for the artist. In July, he launched

his Lovers to Strangers EP, which included the fan-favorite single “In My Room.” The song
has garnered an impressive 200 million streams across Spotify, Apple Music, and YouTube,
along with a staggering 5 billion views on TikTok, inspiring over 2 million video creations and
counting. In June he toured North America (also as the support for Kusher) that included

a stop at Bonnaroo Music Festival.

At only 23, Chance Peña might be one of the youngest music industry veterans you’ll ever
meet – an old-soul folk singer and producer who’s been gigging and writing songs for the
better part of a decade. Born and raised in Tyler, Texas, and now based in Los Angeles,
Chance cut his teeth as a songwriter after competing on The Voice aged 15, and since then
has been honing a sound that is both unrestrained and brimming with emotional depth, all
underscored by an unwavering commitment to authenticity. That truth has led him to some
impossibly huge places – including a publishing deal at an incredibly young age, and a co-
write with John Legend, “Conversations In The Dark”, that netted him a gold record. With
the release of Lovers to Strangers – an entirely self-produced body of work – Chance
emerged as a deft chronicler of the trials and tribulations of romantic relationships and life as
a twenty-something. “I hope that these songs help somebody,” Chance notes, “that these
lessons learned can help them deal with the things in their own lives.”
