Singer Christopher Dale earned his local bones in bands like Grays Well and Superdoo, before becoming a solo performer known as Scorch. Within a few years, he racked nearly a dozen nominations for San Diego Music Awards.

In 2010, at the age of 42, the native San Diegan released a ten track solo album, Songs I Know the Words To, which included a ukulele version of the Ramones’ “I Wanna Be Sedated.”

As of 2015, he was performing around town with the Christopher Dale Trio, alongside Matt Silvia (SweetTooth, Mascot Mantra, Shamey Jays) and Nicki Carano (Spider Tree). In January 2016, Carano was killed by a falling tree during a severe windstorm.
