CHON emerged from San Diego in 2008, the band’s instrumental, guitar-based prog/fusion/experimental earning its three members acclaim, high-profile festival gigs and loads of attention.
Fresh off a set at Coachella 2019 which included a cameo appearance from Kenny G. (really), Chon will release its self-titled album on June 7. To preview the record, the band premiered a laid-back composition titled “Petal” today:
And here’s “Peace,” which had its debut recently as well:
There is just no way you can listen to either song above and not be overtaken by good vibes and, perhaps, find your mind wandering to a place of deep relaxation.

Do yourself a favor and catch CHON on the road in the coming months — it’ll be an experience, for sure.
