Home > The Vespers
The Vespers are one of those bands that have built an extensive underground following simply through word of mouth and heavy touring. The band is uniquely made up of two sibling duos; the Cryar sisters, and the Jones brothers. The four have distinguished their sound with an arsenal of acoustic instruments and harmonies only siblings can create. Their showmanship generates a roller coaster of sight, sound, and emotion and their inherent chemistry and instrumental versatility continues to set them apart.
The band has independently released two full-length records and left a reputable impression on both Americana and Christian audiences. They have toured all over the United States in their short 3 years, playing all different environments from colleges and festivals to listening rooms and theaters.

“The Vespers are on the verge of breaking through The Fourth Wall. The Vespers better get ready to lead a life less normal.”
- Huffington Post
“The miracle of The Vespers is their ability to meld youthful energy with a spiritual background that can be traced to gospel tunes of The Carter Family. In fact, they have as much in common with that famous family as they do with the Louvin Brothers, as well as contemporaries like the Avett Brothers and Mumford & Sons — the Vespers are just that good.”
