They are best known for their song Lie On Lie, which was played for a short time on MTV in late 1996 and received radio airplay in the United States nationwide. Among the musicians the group opened for were Joe Walsh and Seal. Despite critical approval and a cult following, the album did not sell well, and the band was dropped from major label Columbia Records soon thereafter.
According to Chalk farM's Facebook page, the 4 original members are back together, playing regularly in the Los Angeles area, and are "doing a new record."
On February 21st 2014, Orlando Sims died after a lengthy battle with cancer.
