Chance Peña, contestant on season 9 of NBC’s The Voice, stopped by the BMI Nashville office on Tuesday (July 12) to officially sign as an affiliate. Chance is a Secret Road Music Publishing writer and developing artist. Peña also performed at The Basement later that day.

Peña is a Tyler, Texas, native who wowed The Voice judges with a rendition of Ed Sheeran’s “I See Fire.” He began playing guitar at 8 years old, and by 11, he had begun writing songs and performing in local bars and barbecue joints. Now a teenager, he eventually added banjo, ukulele and cajón to his musical arsenal.

He names Hudson Taylor, the Lumineers, and Mumford & Sons as his influences.
