Me & Dinosaur

Me & Dinosaur formed in late 2011 as a small acoustic guitar ensemble focused on bluesy riffs, elaborate harmonies, and clever songwriting. All members being fellow Gauchos of UCSB, the group then consisting of Sean McClure (Lead Vocals, Guitar), Cole Baviera (Guitar, Vocals) and Erich Tomkinson (Guitar, Vocals), eventually evolved into a four piece with the addition of Sean Renken (Bass, Vocals) and Tomkinson moving to drums. The band continued to hone their sound playing such local venues as SOhO, Creekside, Whiskey Richards and the James Joyce while also renting a rehearsal space where they spent late nights fine tuning their musical repertoire. After months of preparation, the band took to the studio to record their debut EP Mud Houses at Playback Recordings in Downtown Santa Barbara. In the Spring of 2013, Me & Dinosaur solidified their line up with the addition of Jon Bumgarner (Drums, Vocals), and Tomkinson again shifting gears, this time to keyboards.

Will Parry and Steve Ornest began writing music together while studying at the Berklee College of Music in Boston. They sent their early demos back to music industry professionals in Los Angeles, and encouraged by their response, decided to make the move. Soon after arriving in Los Angeles they met bassist Matthew Denis and drummer Aviv Cohen, and Fallen Riviera was born. The band hit the local club circuit hard, gradually building a loyal fan base. They released their debut EP "Six Mines," which was ranked album of the year by Music Connection Magazine and awarded them the 2011 Lauren Picard Emerging Artist of the Year Award at Cornell University. This sparked a national tour for the band. Fallen Riviera recently teamed up with Casio and released a music video for their single "This Is Who I Am." They are currently in the studio working on their first full length album.
