Meet the Band

1/9

Joey Factor

 

From the early age of 5, Joey knew that he wanted to be performing on stage, singing front and center. At 15 years of age, things began to change as he found the sound of the legendary punk-rock group Green Day; which was the first music ever played by the original up-and-coming band Hybrid. As frontman for Hybrid, the band had lots of success, heading venues like the House Of Blues in Orlando and winning Battle of the Bands at the Legendary Station. Joey is looking forward to getting back on stage and connecting with fans all over the globe.

 

Joey's influences are Papa Roach, Linkin Park, Breaking Benjamin, Limp Bizkit, Pearl Jam, and Seether.

Clyde Clark

 

At the age of 6, Clyde's brother Ricky gifted him his very first guitar. Once he saw a KISS music video, Ace Frehley inspired him to start playing and hone his craft. By 2005, he received his first sponsorship from Noteworthy Music Company. By 2011, he had played and recorded with several groups, although most of them disbanded shortly after. In 2014, a new band he'd created titled Five Years Dead formed and released a demo; they were interviewed on live radio and played several shows before disbanding in early 2015. After that, he began doing studio and session work, as well as learning to produce and engineer. After an extended period of inactivity while writing and recording, he began to desire to play in a group, which led to joining New Dilemma.

 

Clyde's influences are Mudvayne, Love and Death, and Black Stone Cherry.

Bobby keller

Born in Denver, Colorado, but raised as a native of Orlando, Florida, Bobby Keller has been making his way on to the music scene with his unique style of guitar playing since 2009, and is considered one of the top guitar players in Florida and the south east. Inspired by guitarists such as Eddie Van Halen, Jimi Hendrix and Dimebag Darrell, Bobby combined both untamed speed and euphonic rhythm into his technique to create a truly individual sound. 

 

Joining up with Meka Nism in 2010, they have toured together nationally along with renowned artists such as: Evanescence, Hellyeah, Mastodon, Gojira, Nonpoint, Jonathan Davis, Stabbing Westward, as well as Otep, Avatar and Trapt. Over the years Bobby has been endorsed with: ESP Guitars, EMG Pickups, Richter Straps, Fortin Amps, SIT Strings, WB Gear, Neural DSP, Graph Tech Guitar Labs, FU-Tone, Klotz Cables and JH Audio. In 2016, Bobby was also able to star in the Theater Works Production of Rock of Ages as the lead guitar player for the “house band” of the Bourbon Room in Hollywood, California. 

 

In 2019, Bobby Keller decided to start a Solo Project with Ben Johnson, a talented drummer and engineer as well as owner of Reverse 13 Studios in Orlando, Florida. Together, they have been working on their first single titled, “Reign in Fire”, which will be mastered by Gene Freeman (professionally known as Machine), an American music producer and engineer who has worked with bands including Lamb of God, Clutch, As It Is, Crobot and Suicide Silence. 

 

Today, Bobby is still continuing to make music on his eye-catching glow-in-the-dark ESP guitars and has also gone into starting his own businesses.
