The Dudes

The band is formed by 4 great friends.
We love everything about music. The writing process is fun and flows quite fluid since we are basically just a group of good friends crafting songs we love. We hope that the stuff we write and play will be enjoyed by everyone. To continue to enjoy playing and writing we have been writing stuff that we really like. The music is honest and full of emotional. We hope that the dynamics in the music engage the listener and take them on an journey with us as we play.
-John Lindsey plays guitar in the band, but also can play the drums and really wants to learn to play the saw. An amazing guitarist with a passion for music. It was his vision that inspired this band in the first place. The music he writes is super emotional and dynamic and its a thrill to be writing music with him.

-Stephen Poole never ceases to amaze us. The guitar work he writes so expressive and unique. He’s a super friend and also the youngest of crew. John and Chris have known Stephen since he was a young lad. They all went to the same church youth group and have kept in touch and remained friends ever since.

-Chris Murphy is the old man of the group.. a ripe old age of 27. Also the one writing this biography. So to not toot my own horn, I wont praise myself. However, I have heard that I slap a mean bass.

-Ricky Reilly was our original drummer and played on the album. He eventually moved on to pursue other projects.

-Chris Boardman picked up the sticks when Ricky left. Chris was an awesome addition to the band and an amazing fit. He drummed with us for a couple years, but as his family grew his free time diminished. We were sad to see him go but completely understood.

-Matt St. Jean is our current drummer. Berkley grad with a focus in jazz comp. Matt brings a whole other level to vessel. Technical skill and a great ear for music he brings something new to vessel that is tactful and impactful. Matt will be on board for the next album we are currently starting to write.
