Nick Chance, owner and founder of Chance MUSIC has been in the music business for over 30 years. While at RCA/BMG for 3 years Nick played an integral role in the promotion of what remains Australia's largest selling album, John Farnham's Whispering Jack.
With initial live experience as a band manager / band booker for venues, and having released the first 7" vinyl single for a managed band in the early 1980s, by later that decade Nick was assisting with the Turn Back The Tide free open air concert at Bondi Beach. With a Police crowd estimate of 250,000, it surpassed the size of any previous Australian crowd for any type of outdoor event.
For some years, while also managing acts, Nick worked as a Production Manager in music videos - from when they arrived in music - and wrote a column on the music video industry as "Justin Harpinion" for the Australian music weekly, RAM Magazine.
