Our Story

The story of Chu Ma Shu starts when a group of 13-year-old friends started jamming together at secondary school back in the year 2000.

Unbelievably, more than two decades later and Chu Ma Shu are still here!

Many great musicians have been a part of Chu over the years, but one person is always at the epicentre of things; Jake d’Alquen has fronted the band since the beginning, and it is Jake’s talent and passion for great music that has been the bedrock of the band over the years.
