The Far Cry is a Progressive Rock Band formed in 2013 in Connecticut. USA
Jeff Brewer and Robert Hutchinson, co-conspirators behind the inception of what was become The Far Gry, can vividly recall the musical awakening that occurred in their younger days when The Beatles landed and with all that followed. Soon thereafter, they each were even more deeply moved by emergence of the Progressive Rock bands of the early 70's, most notably King Crimson, Yes, ELP, Genesis and Gentle Giant.
Jeff And Hutch first crossed paths around 1976 with the formation of a short-lived rock covers band. Common ground occurred later, through not simultaneously, when both were members of Cennecticut prog rock band Holding Pattern, Hutch as co-founder from 1980-83 and, after Hutch left the band, Jeff joined as a lead vocalist from 1984 to 1993 when the band ceased operations.
Fast forward to 2013 when Hutch purchased a speaker cabinet Jeff had form sale. In the dialogue, the pursuit of the likely impossible was quickly broached and decision made to chase the dream just one more time. Thus the seeds for The Far Cry were sown.
Eventually, the duo decided to enter the studio to get the material up and running. Guitarist Bryan Collin had already been in contact, having answered a Craigslist ad, and was amendable to playing on the recordings.
As he did so, he became intrigued and more strongly connected to the music and the band concept.
Still, a highly competent keyboardist was required. Studio owner and master engineer John Bolduc was asked if he knew any keyboard man who could properly interpret and perform the music he was hearing.
John responded instantly: Chris Dabbo. At first Chris came on as a session musician but very quickly demonstrated his impressive skill set as well as connection to bands music. All involved were highly enthused and Chris was drafted in as a keyboardist for The Far Cry.
Hence, the "If Only.." debuted as a result of step by step evolution by what has now become a fully formed membership.
