Same’s new album "Plastic Western" is a very special record for the band. And it almost didn’t happen. They were scheduled to get into the studio in November of 2018, but just before that, guitarist Jake Stern ran into a bit of a problem.

Chalk Dinosaur is a prolific band. They’ve released more than a dozen albums and EPs along with a sprinkling of singles over the last ten years.

However, if you had asked frontman John O’Hallaron what his plans in high school were, he probably wouldn’t have mentioned music.

Kiki Brown is the powerhouse lead singer for soulful jammers The Buckle Downs. Brown is a force behind the microphone.

She seems to ooze confidence, but that wasn’t always the case. She used to play a more passive role in what went into the songs before they came out of her.
