About This Team

Chad Short (he/him), is a musician currently residing in Friday Harbor, WA. Born and raised in Maryland, Chad got his musical start in 2011 as a member of the musical duo “Straight Inappropriate,” alongside his friend and collaborator Zach Scruggs. Upon graduating with a BFA degree in Acting from the University of Maryland, Baltimore County (2017), Chad decided to pursue a solo career as a hip-hop artist under the name biig red couch. Inspired by spoken word, poetry, and a plethora of rappers and musicians new and old (Tierra Whack, Tyler the Creator, Mac Miller, Outkast, and Lil Wayne - to name a few), Chad dropped his first solo project, TRIMMINGS, in 2019. He quickly followed his debut album with WORLD DIE SOON, which he released during the global COVID-19 pandemic. Since then, he has worked to master his craft, spending over three years developing his technical skills and exploring new flows and ideas. He looks to release a new project in 2024, where he’ll explore themes including body dysmorphia, alcoholism, mental health awareness, and toxic relationships, among others. The song Fat Boi serves as a declaration of self-love, one that cannot be minimized by size, perception, or shame. Couch is proud to be a fat boi, and when he’s headed your direction, you better join him… or move out of the way.
