BROUGHT TO YOU IN ASSOCIATION WITH THE RHYTHM BUILDING at MUSIC ROW in NASHVILLE TENNESSEE and THERECORDSHOPNASHVILLE.COM
The Vespers are a duo of sibling duos: Callie and Phoebe Cryar, and Taylor and Bruno Jones.
They came together purely by spontaneous collision, the two pairs both completely immersed in their own separate projects. The girls were playing acoustic instruments and singing ghostly harmonies to folk songs they had written, and the boys were playing rock and roll and having to turn down the numerous "hey, let's start a band" invitations that were beating down their door. In Nashville where anyone can throw a rock and kill two musicians, rocks were landing on Taylor's and Bruno's heads every week and Callie and Phoebe were sliding by unscathed.
They decided to throw a rock at the boys.
By the end of that summer the four comrades knew something had to be done about what they had made. They decided to record an album. Armed with a plethora of guitars, mandolins, drums, keyboards, an upright bass, a banjo, an accordion, a trumpet, and numerous other borrowed instruments, they began to record that fall. From the beginning of October until the very end of January The Vespers did not rest, producing and performing every morsel of it themselves. They named their record "Tell Your Mama," released it in March, got a van and a trailer, and set off to see the world and to let the world see them. All before a single one of them had reached the ripe old age of 21.
The Vespers are now a company of wild-eyed players. They go anywhere and everywhere, in hopes of entrancing and befriending any and all who might hear them.http://www.myspace.com/thevespersofficial
