Meet the Band
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.
Back in 1984 when Paul first heard Twisted Sister’s “We’re Not Gonna Take It”, he was instantly hooked on rock and roll. It wasn’t long after that he would dream of someday becoming a musician. His dream started in 1998 with his first band, I’m Just a Number; which would be short-lived, but it only opened more doors and made him strive to be a better musician and songwriter. Through his music career, Paul has not only been in a number of bands, but has also been a musical manager and coordinator of charity music festivals. Paul has written over 5 albums of music, over 50 solo songs, and has played in various side projects throughout the years.

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.
