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.
