Music Made Me: Chase Kerby

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


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.

OKG7 inventive breakfasts

OKG7 Dining

Kelley Chambers
Inventive options around the metro shake up the bacon-and-egg breakfast. Sure, there is a time and place for the old favorites, but why not have some fun, too? Bacon and sausage may think they hold a monopoly on breakfast, but they take a backseat to turkey, chicken and even lobster on these menus. Some places even substitute tofu and soy for meat, and odds are you’ll never miss the pork.
