A little about the band:

Daniel Emond, the band’s singer and writer

DANIEL EMOND has been a performer and creator ever since he can remember. He has been telling stories and acting in plays since he was nine years old, and has been singing ever since his voice dropped. He earned a BFA in acting from the University of North Carolina School of the Arts, and as soon as he graduated, he decided to follow his dreams of forming an elite rock band. In January, Daniel will be joining the Florida Studio Theater for their new Musical Poems, Prayers and Promises, but before and after that, he will focus on building a successful future for the band. He feels truly blessed and proud to be working with the musicians who have joined him.

Owen Dudley, the band’s guitarist

Born and raised in the Hartford area, OWEN DUDLEY has been playing music since the age of 3, when he got his first violin. Studying classical violin and piano through his teens, he decided to explore the possibilities of improvised music on a new instrument, the guitar. Owen arrived in New York City in 2009 to study music at the New School, and has been living and playing in the city ever since. His spirited playing and penchant for picking his spot make him a welcome addition to the group. Owen's other hobbies include asking the big questions, watching hockey, and getting caught in the rain.

Household Tales

Household Tales began when brothers William Lea and David Redbranch reunited and discovered that they had more in common than ancestry. Each had been fronting rock bands, honing his songwriting skills, and rambling round the musical landscape that lies between Old Weird America and Brooklyn. Joining with drummer Tim Shortle and upright bassist Sean Ali, they began crafting a sound that combined ancient folk ballads, brash rock anthems, and high lonesome blues.

Household Tales' debut album Threshold Shift was recorded and mixed by Grammy Award-winning engineer Danny Blume, in Woodstock, N.Y., and released in May 2013.
