Chosen

By early 1982, CHOSEN had written enough original material that a full-length album was in order. Having studied Yes and Genesis and others, CHOSEN produced a unique recording of wide ranging emotions and energy. This album effectively communicated the spirituality of the band members at the time. CHOSEN’s only full-length album was recorded in 1982.

Record Credits:

Jerry Kosak – acoustic & electric guitars, vocals
Rose Bustamante – vocals, flute, percussion
Phil Jeffery – bass, vocals
Fred Trafton – ARP Quartet, Casio toy keyboard, Pro-1
Jon Glimpse – drums, percussion

CHOSEN Demo

Between 1981 and 1983 CHOSEN existed as (possibly) one of the first progressive Christian bands. Originally, Jerry founded the band as (essentially) a Phil Keaggy cover band. However, each new member brought an element of eclecticism that ranged from Yes, Genesis, and Gentle Giant to King Crimson, The Talking Heads and Devo. While evolving from the Keaggy tunes into an original sound, CHOSEN recorded this demo in early 1982.
