 The contentious music clip, deemed “a bloody battle between the sacred and the profane,” was banned from YouTube for “violating terms of service” just a few hours after its release on Wednesday, and returned with an age restriction a little while later.But some say Bowie’s creative vision mocks Christianity, and wish it was gone altogether.

And according to emerging songstress Erica Chase, music and art is the one place where boundaries can be pushed and rules can be broken.

“Artists have the ability to say what lay people and politicians often cannot because there is a demand for it,” she continued. “And religion encircles the great unknown: what is the purpose of this life and what happens after. Bowie and Gaga are just as uncertain as you and I about all that, so why can’t we enjoy a catchy song with an imaginative video to boot?”

A rep for Bowie did not respond to a request for further comment.

Get To Know Erica!

If you took John Lennon, Lindsey Buckingham, and Sheryl Crow and morphed them into one, it might sound a bit like Los Angeles native Erica Chase.  She’s a little bit of old school rock and roll meshed with pop hooks, and wholeheartedly authentically unique.

On original tracks like “We Can Fly,” and “Never Let You Go,” there is a raw grittiness that comes echoing off of the speakers that sounds like a seasoned vet.  From bass lines that shamelessly honor Paul McCartney and John Paul Jones, to lyrics spanning from political change to undying hope for love, Chase bleeds honesty in her music and leaves it all out on the stage and on the record.

Erica Chase is a Southern California-born singer-songwriter and guitarist who grew up around two brothers and was very much into sports when she heard a Red Hot Chili Peppers tune at the age of 7.  She was so hooked on it that she developed an interest in music.  By the time she finished high school, she would be as much into the music as she was into sports, writing song after song, and learning how to play guitar.

While majoring in English at a private California college, her father’s business connections led to Erica meeting up with producer and Slaughter bassist Dana Strum in February 2006.  No sooner did that meeting happen than the day after, Erica, while riding on her bicycle, crashed into a truck’s windshield, sustaining minor injuries.  Her recovery led her to realizing that, despite future plans to be a school teacher, life was too short, and she wanted to rock.

Erica Chase

Erica Chase is a rock star and a pop star. Though influenced at a young age by The Beatles, The Doors and Jimi Hendrix, she says she has “always dreamed about a Top 40 kind of singer-songwriter career.” Chase seamlessly blends both genres into something she can truly call her own unique style.

Chase-ing Your Dreams, One Chord at a Time

Singer/Songwriter Erica Chase decided life’s too short not to be a rock star.

Erica Chase, the talented young singer/songwriter (“We Can Fly”) was an English major at Pitzer College in Claremont, California, when she met multiplatinum producer, Dana Strum (Slaughter bassist). Through connections her father’s business partner made in Las Vegas, Erica met Dana on February 1, 2006. That date will forever burn in her memory, not only because of the amazingness of the moment, but because of what happened the very next day. Riding on her bicycle on the way to meet a friend for lunch, she was slammed up against a truck windshield, flying through the air and onto the ground. She awoke in a helicopter with a mask over her face. Continue Reading →
