The Nate Chung Project

On this episode of The Music Room, WVUD had the opportunity to speak with Nate Chung and Casey Dawson, two out of the four members, from The Nate Chung Project. Throughout the interview, we were able to get perspective on what it’s like to be a full-time college student with an unpredictable schedule while still managing to record music for your band. The two were able to explain to us how they all came together and what’s next for the band following graduation.

About the Band

The Nate Chung Project is an acoustic rock band made up of four members: Nate Chung, Casey Dawson, Sean Horan, and Frank Dwyer. The band came together in the Spring of 2017 at The College of Holy Cross and has been recording music together ever since. Nate Chung, the main vocalist from the band, first started fooling around with music in middle school but began to take it more seriously in high school. While attending The College of Holy Cross in Worcester Massachusetts, the band has been preforming at many local establishments and college events. Recently, they recorded their first album and it’s now streaming on Spotify and iTunes and has received great feedback.

Tiny Hueman: Philly’s Newest Alt Rock Powerhouse

For Philly-based five piece Tiny Hueman,
2017 has been a busy year. This year alone, the band fully solidified their lineup, released their first EP, Shallow, and played shows from Philadelphia to New York, including the first annual Philly Music Fest at the World Cafe Live this past September.

On November 24, Tiny Hueman released their sophomore EP, Drift, through New Noise Magazine. Experimenting with texture, instrumentation, and rhythm, Tiny Hueman successfully combines the brightness of indie rock with heavy alternative sounds. Dustin Miller and Vinny Vaccaro’s dynamic guitar riffs effortlessly blend with the driving rhythms of drummer Kevin Miller and bassist Josh Halberstadt, all rounded out by Richie Hollahan’s melodic and powerful vocal lines. Drift is an impressive work that establishes Tiny Hueman’s endurance in a densely packed Philadelphia music scene — just ask Circa Survive frontman Anthony Green.

Days before the release, Tiny Hueman stopped by The Music Room to perform in the WVUD lounge and talk with Liz about the new EP, their inspirations, and their collaboration and growth as a band.
