Music Made Me: Chase Kerby

The singer-songwriter and Defining Times frontman shares five albums that have proven instrumental in his own music career.


Music

Joshua Boydston
Nick Drake, Pink Moon (1972) 
I first heard this album in 1999 on a Volkswagen Cabrio commercial. The next year, when I became a sophomore and was old enough to drive, I remember cruising around on warm nights by myself, listening to that album while being completely lost in thought. His ability to do so much with so little is what had me enthralled from the moment I pushed play.

The Younglings — The Younglings


Rock

Joshua Boydston
Oklahoma’s own The Younglings aren’t so much breaking new ground as they are building on a solid foundation with their latest self-titled album, but the duo does a rather convincing strut in The Black Keys’ shoes in a Rubber Factory-worthy assembly line of tried and true blues rock tunes.
