Based in Carlsbad, Chasing Norman was formed in 2011 by students of the Vista School of Rock. Drummer Hunter Pipp, 15, lived in Carlsbad at the time and was attending High Tech High School in San Marcos. Max Peterson, 15, was a freshman at Mission Vista High School, while Riley Hoover, 15, and Sage Provins, 15, were sophomores at Carlsbad High School.

Singer Casey Hensley later launched a career as a solo performer, as well as fronting a self-named band. Riley Hoover attended Berklee College of Music in Boston, Massachusetts, where he met a drummer named Jack McChesney, whose funk-infused, saxophone-centric, jam-band STIG soon invited Hoover to join them.
