Lead Vocals, Lyricist
Brian’s home is all of South Texas. From a young age he had a love of music and lyrics, and for years he wrote songs not knowing what they were for. Getting connected with Wade and Lee started turning those lyrics into songs. Brian enjoys a good game of baseball and can’t play guitar, but somehow is better at guitar than baseball (ask him). He is inspired by a variety of music including Texas Country, Alternative, Rock and Grunge and is going to keep pestering the guys until we do a Nirvana cover. Until we make our first million, Brian works in Marketing & Advertising in the Corpus Christi area.
Guitar/Vocals, Composer, Producer, Graphic Designer
Wade was born in Mississippi to a military family. He grew up watching his father, George, play guitar and sing in each church they attended while being transferred around the States. Wade’s brother, Joe, also picked up the guitar and formed his own band. With an abundance of guitars and music in his home, it was almost pre-destined that Wade would pick up the guitar as well. Throughout his life, he played in the solitude of his bedroom until joining a praise band in Portland, Texas. There he met Lee Dykes and the two of them formed a duo band, Reluctant Harmonies. The two of them have played at a local bookstore once a month or so for the last four years. Wade met Brian Wright at work and brought him into the duet as a lyricist and singer. The three formed a solid band and began writing original music. Today, Wade thoroughly enjoys writing music, watching Netflix, and engrossing himself in the creative process at every opportunity. Wade is married to his beautiful wife, Amanda, and has two great kids.
Bass/Vocals/Keys, Composer, Promoter
Lee is Vermonter who has lived in Texas more than half his life. Many of his earliest memories are of my dad’s bands practicing and playing on stage. As a Dykes it was expected that he follow in the family as a musician. He learned saxophone for band, picked up bass in high school, and did a little singing at TAMUK. After freshman year there he hit a period where music was totally out of his life, but that couldn’t last. Praise band in Portland brought him back to performing and it wasn’t long until he and the new guitarist in the band, Wade, joined up to play as Reluctant Harmonies. A few configurations later he serves as a composer, bassist, and occasionally novice keys player for The East & The Crow. His life outside of music is pretty full with family, church, and 2(.5?) jobs. Alyssa claimed his heart, and they have 3 (crazy) children.
Quinn was born in Saint Petersburg, Florida and grew up in the Midwest before finding his home in South Texas. The love of music has always inspired him but he did not start playing the drums until just six years ago when he met Brian at work. Quinn joined the rest of the crew about a year and a half ago but took a short leave of absence to finish another degree in the medical field. After finding his way back into the band, he is able to enjoy the love of his career and the drums simultaneously. Quinn is happily married to his wife Melanie who may or may not approves of the loud “obnoxious” late night drum grooves coming from the spare bedroom.
