Yanni is Greek. That's really all you need to know about him. And he cares a bit too much about his hair. Rest assured, this is why you'll love him!
Long ago, in the lush valleys of Northbridge, Massachusetts, Matthew began his burgeoning singing career as a small boy. Recently, he has made the grueling journey to Boston to study neuroscience and foster his love for music whilst donning snazzy blazers with his fellow Abbeys.
Hailing from a small town in northeastern Massachusetts, Brady has a long musical history stemming from a love of jazz saxophone. Recently, he has made the long (read: short) and arduous move to Boston where the weather is exactly the same as his hometown. Brady is currently studying international relations and is feeding his love of music by dropping the (vocal) bass with the Abbeys.
Though dealing with extreme separation anxiety from his home town of Needham, Massachusetts, (which is a whole 9.4 miles away), Jacob enjoys long walks alone on the esplanade to watch the sunrise, drinks copious amounts of tea, and considers Ben Folds to be his spirit animal.
Just a small town boy with a big city heart, this young singer hopes to make history with his golden chimes. On weekends he practices kendo, a modern Japanese martial art which has its roots in kenjustu swordsmanship fighting. Watch out for this one!
Jeff Wang is as chill as California (where he's from) but as strong as Boston. Jeff loves the great outdoors, so when he’s not singing, you can find him in his natural state- stoking a fire somewhere in the woods. Proficient in Microsoft Excel and trusted by Metro Boomin, Jeff Wang is surely a force to be reckoned with.
Straight outta Indonesia, Christian has come all this way to Boston to eat some nachos in Sunset Cantina. When trying to find the restroom in Mugar, he stumbled upon the Dear Abbeys’ Spring auditions and the rest is history. You can spot this Abbey on his merry way down Comm Ave with a tune in his head and a smile on his face.
Have you ever had a friend that's 2/3 tablespoons of too weird to sit at the cool table and 4 1/2 cups of hair product? That's Lucas for you! Lucas' spirit animal is the fantastic peacock. He likes to paint, sleep, and eat A LOT of pasta.
This Abbey was shoved in a box at 5 weeks old, shipped across 6 countries before finally landing in Boston. Born in the far reaches of Indonesia, this guy has lived everywhere. Having walked through fire (he set his hand on fire in 7th grade) and braved the heights of Mount Kinabalu (he stopped ¾ of the way up), he’s a tough one. You’ll probably find this Abbey gliding down Bay State road on his skateboard, or swimming in the “moderately fast” lane in the Fitrec pool.
Brendan was born in the back of a trailer park deep within the wooded wilderness of rural southern Kentucky. Throughout his youth, he was subjected to teachings of the Real Truths of the World, including the true age of the Earth (6000 years old) and the preposterousness of the theory of evolution. Somehow, he managed to sneak his way, undetected, into Boston University, and now shouts melodic notes at strangers with 12 other young men.
Mattyar is just a small town boy living in a lonely world who took a midnight train to Boston from New Jersey to study film. When he isn't watching movies he's probably stuffing his face with food, listening to music, or polishing his Wendy's keychain.
In a far off kingdom in the Hudson Valley of New York, Eric, the big friendly giant, was born! Coming in at 6'4", he used his height to his advantage when he had to play as an enchanted tree in his high school's musical, Into The Woods. As a pre-med student, he aspires to connect medicine and music as a form of therapy (what's better than to join the Abbeys if you want to do this, right?).
