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.
