JC Chasez

JC Chasez

Member of the band 'N Sync

Background:

A frontman for the international boy band ‘N Sync, JC Chasez made his solo debut
with his single “Bring It All To Me” (1999). Success arrived in the following
year when he and his band mates released their second studio album, Celebrity,
which broke the Billboard record for the biggest sales in the first week. A big
fan of Seal and Sting, Chasez entered the realm of stardom after ‘N Sync’s
Grammy-winning album Celebrity (2001) became a massive commercial hit.

After several performances and behind-the-scene work both for ‘N Sync and other
music artists like Boyz & Girlz United and Wild Orchid, Chasez’ solo career
began to grab public attention when he launched a solo debut album titled
Schizophrenic (2004). Despite the controversial artwork depicting Chasez in a
straitjacket, the recording became a hot issue for showing off the different
sides of the artist with its hit single “Some Girls (Dance With Women).” In
2006, Chasez is set to release a second album in which he will also serve as the
producer and collaborate with Dallas Austin, Timbaland, Rockwilder and Yummy.

On a more private note, Chasez had a long-term relationship with Bobbie Thomas,
the editor of In Touch Weekly magazine before forming a romantic bond with his
fellow Mouseketeer, Nikki Deloach. He was also reportedly linked to several
celebrities like Eva Longoria, Tara Reid and Fergie of the Black Eyed Peas.


Sleepy

Childhood and Family:

The son of Roy and Karen (writer, editor), Joshua Scott Chasez, who would later
be famous as JC Chasez, was born on August 8, 1976, in Washington D.C. With his
younger sisters Heather and Tyler, he was raised in Bowie, Maryland. JC, who
also carries other nicknames like “C,” “Sleepy,” “Daddy” or “Shazzam,”
demonstrated his special ability to perform at an early age.
A lover of vintage cars, JC owns a black Jeep and an Akita-Shepherd mix-dog
named Baron. The blue-eyed musician also likes Chinese food and pink shirts.


Some Girls

Career:

JC Chasez had his first screen performance on The Mickey Mouse Club, which aired
on the Disney Channel. Along with future band mate Justin Timberlake and other
future stars like Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera and Keri Russell, Chasez
was able to show off his talent as a performer. He also played Clarence
“Wipeout” Adams in the soap opera “Emerald Cove,” which was aired within the
show. Thanks to the idea of The Mickey Mouse Club’s vocal coach to form a group,
Chasez soon teamed up with Justin Timberlake, Chris Kirkpatrick, Joey Fatone and
Lance Bass. Together, they achieved first-class recognition under the name of ‘N
Sync.

In 1998, Chasez and his band mates found that their self-titled album quickly
made an impact and climbed to the second bestseller position in the U.S. It was
followed by the holiday album Home for Christmas and The Winter Album (released
outside the U.S), that same year. While working with his group, Chasez gave his
first solo performance by singing “Bring It All To Me” (1999) for R & B trio
Blaque in their self-titled album.

Phenomenal success came to the boy band when they launched their second studio
album titled No Strings Attached (2000). Gaining both commercial and critical
triumph, the album was awarded a Special Music award from Billboard for making
the biggest 1st week sales in history, as well as a Billboard for Best Album and
a Blockbuster for Favorite CD.

Outside the band, Chasez continued to explore his own musical skills. He
recorded his solo single “Give in to Me” for the album Euge Groove (2000) before
debuting as a songwriter and producer. Chasez, who was musically influenced by
Billie Holiday, Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson, Sting and Harry Connick, Jr.,
wrote songs and produced for pop performers Boyz & Girlz United and the female
trio Wild Orchid.

Rejoining ‘N Sync, Chasez worked on their third recording, Celebrity (2001), in
which he also co-wrote four songs. With their bestseller album, ‘N Sync soon got
their names lifted even higher. Celebrity hit the music industry by netting a
Grammy and a Teen Choice for Best Album, while it’s single “Pop” won a Teen
Choice and three Video Music awards. ‘N Sync also took home two Grammys, one for
Best Pop Collaboration With Vocals and one for Best Pop Performance By A Duo Or
Group, an American Music for Best Pop/Rock Band, a Teen Choice for Choice
Concert, as well as a People’s Choice, a Blockbuster and a Radio Music for
Favorite Music Group. Following the success, band members went on to pursue solo
careers.

In 2002, Chasez took part in the Drumline Soundtrack by performing his
self-written song “Blowin’ Me Up (With Her Love).” The following year, he made
an appearance in the song “Plug it In” for Basement Jaxx’s Kish Kash, as well as
“Force of Gravity” for BT’s album titled Emotional Technology.

Chasez caught more attention with his first solo album, Schizophrenic (2004).
Produced by Chasez, along with Dallas Austin, Basement Jaxx, and BT, the album
presented a different side of the ‘N Sync frontman, as well as raised some
protest. Its controversial artwork illustrating Chasez wearing a straitjacket
ignited a complaint from Schizophrenia Digest’s publisher, who claimed that
Chasez’ picture led to public misunderstanding about schizophrenia. However, the
album became a hot item primarily for its kickoff single, “Some Girls (Dance
With Women).” The recording also set off such tracks as the re-released “Blowin’
Me Up (With Her Love),” “All Day Long I Dream About Sex” and “Build My World.”


Subsequent to the launching of ‘N Sync’s Greatest Hits in 2005, Chasez is
scheduled to release his second album in 2006. In this recording, he will also
serves as the producer. The multi-talented performer will cooperate with some
big names like Dallas Austin, Timbaland, Rockwilder and Yummy.
