In 1995, Christian McNeill was the lead singer/guitarist for Schtum, released a CD for Sonys Work Records, landed a top 20 Modern Rock Hit in 1995 and criss-crossed continents playing festivals and touring Europe and the US ..... Schtum disbanded, and McNeill left Northern Ireland for Boston with a slew of new songs and newfound energy for making music. He recruited fellow Derry bassist Jeremy Dryden to join him and everything became complete when the two met Pennsylvanian drummer phenom Jeff Berlin and Hybrasil was born.
Ed Hamell picked up the guitar at age 7 and started writing songs not long after. In his early 20s, Mr. Hamell was the front man and writer for an original band, but local bands were a dime a dozen in the tough, working class neighborhoods in Syracuse, NY. So he launched a one-man act called "Hamell on Trial."
Armed with his battered 1937 Gibson acoustic guitar, Mr. Hamell toured the country, then settled in Austin, Texas, where he found a receptive audience for his esoteric mix of songs and story telling.
A few years later, and a move to Brooklyn, NY, brought Mr. Hamell and Ani DiFranco together. He signed with Righteous Babe Records and released Tough Love in 2003, followed by Songs for Parents Who Enjoy Drugs in 2006. Subsequently, he has toured extensively with Ms. DiFranco, and has collaborated with her on several songs.
