Dreadnaught

Over the course of over 15 years, half a dozen albums, and more notes than you can shake a stick at, the ever-evolving Dreadnaught has carved out a musical niche unlike any other. This is because, very simply, we're totally and utterly deranged. And I can say this for the equally simple reason that I'm partly to blame. Today, at the start of a new decade, Dreadnaught - bassist Bob Lord (the guy writing this), drummer Rick Habib, and guitarist Justin Walton - can be heard daily performing the theme song for New Hampshire Public Radio's flagship radio program "The Exchange." Since 2005, Dreadnaught has been the house band for The Music Hall/NHPR series "Writers On A New England Stage" (for which I'm the Music Director), and we've composed and arranged music for writers such as John Updike, Stephen King, Madeleine Albright, Ken Burns, Alan Alda, E.L. Doctorow, Dan Brown, Mitch Albom, Elmore Leonard, and Neil Gaiman, among others. But this isn't the whole story. Utterly uncompromising multi-movement prog-rock opuses, gritty bar-band Americana, experimental electronic music, even a music for orchestra... all this and more can be found by just clicking that nice little "Launch Audio" link up there. We've played in more than half the states of the union and along the way we've shared the stage with artists (and band influences) like John Entwistle, Tony Levin, NRBQ, and a ton of others. Our records have won awards and we've won acclaim, but nothing interests as much as just doing what we love to do: make music that confounds every single expectation one could possibly have. Really - what is the point of doing what has already been done? We'll leave that to the other folks. Duck for cover... head for the hills... here comes Dreadnaught.
