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?).
Coming all the way from the backwoods of Connecticut, Finn journeyed to Boston to prove his skill as a Pokémon trainer on his quest to catch 'em all. When he is not running from his responsibilities you can find at this Abbey sleeping or doing kendama tricks at the BU beach.
New York City kid Jack can be found chilling in the lazy river at FitRec or devouring some Americone Dream ice cream. As a voice major, he has decided to fill his schedule with even more singing because he's tone deaf and needs to practice.
Born in Oxford, England, Will moved to the beautiful city of Boston when he was just two. And it looks like he stayed! Fun fact: His first house and preschool were on Bay State Road. A Terrier since (just after) birth, Will loves art, music, a cappella, and always has a travel-sized can of hairspray on hand -- because who has the money to buy a full sized can of hairspray? When he's not studying Advertising, or minoring in visual arts, Will is waiting for the T, shopping at TJ Maxx, or crying over talent show auditions!
Hailing from the sun-kissed sands of Southern California, Noah has ventured far beyond his native environment to pursue his ultimate goal: collecting the seven Dragon Balls. With the power of the Dragon Balls, Noah wishes for his dreams of a penguin Swing band to come to life. When not on a quest for these powerful artifacts, you can find Noah enhancing in angsty activities such as listening to avant-garde music or attempting to contemplate reality.
